I learned again that a `git clone` is something else than `gbp-clone
--all` (and I again wonder what might be the sense of *cloning* if I do
not get every branch.  It seems git is following some logic which I do
not understand.

Anyway after

   gbp-clone --all git+ssh://tille@git.debian.org/git/debian-science/packages/heasoft-fv.git
   git checkout debian

I was able to inspect the debian/ dir.  Unfortunately even after commiting
and pushing a slight change the repository on git.debian.org obviosely has
a problem.   The machine readable gatherer does something like

   wagner:/git/debian-science/packages/heasoft-fv.git$ git show HEAD:debian/changelog
   fatal: Invalid object name 'HEAD'.

Any idea what might be wrong with this Git repository because for other
repositories this command just outputs the changelog file.

Kind regards
