I would presume that the to-be-written package handling tool (the
code name is "fpkg" AFAIR) would set up local tracking branches when...
uhm... needed (the exact triggers need to be worked out). It should work
out to fpkg calling

   $ git branch F-$n origin/F-$n

for appropriate values of $n, which is not much magic.
