metro has a problem with origin/master?

Hi all.  I've been searching everywhere all day, I just don't get it, or understand why no one else has this problem.
I've been following the Metro Quick Start on the wiki.  In there it says "There is a quick step you can perform to avoid having Metro re-clone the entire Portage tree..." and it tells you to "git checkout origin/master".  I think I understand what origin/master is, but git complains that it doesn't.  In /usr/portage/.git only origin/ is referenced.  git branch -a gives

  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/

So I tried to ignore that, thinking this was something out of date but when I finally run ezbuild I get this:

run_script: running steps/run...
Already on ''
Performing git pull...

error: pathspec 'origin/master' did not match any file(s) known to git.
couldn't check out branch origin/master for tarball

Approximately the same error I get when attempting the "git checkout origin/master" command.
I know I must be missing something obvious, like some other git branch command is needed?  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Thanks

Re: metro has a problem with origin/master?

OK, I think I got it, had to refresh Git learning wink
I believe that the directions are telling us to CREATE origin/master branch that metro will use.  If so, it seems it needs -b like this: git checkout -b origin/master.
I'm going with that for now, please correct me if I'm wrong.
I apologize for the disturbance in the Force, should have given it a few more minutes.
