It's beginning to sound like we've caught some folks off guard by pushing changes to the edison branch of the poky repository in preparation for an upcoming edison point release.

The named branches are development branches for the release, stable release development will be done in the named branch and we can't guarantee they will be issue free (though we intend them to be where possible).

If you're looking to use a git checkout which matches the release tarballs you should checkout the tags for the releases. i.e. for Poky Edison-6.0/Yocto 1.1:

http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/poky/tag/?id=edison-6.0
http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-intel/tag/?id=edison-6.0

So instead of doing:
git checkout -b edison origin/edison

what should I do if I want to stay in sync with the tarball.  This may just be a doc problem.

Having suffered through a couple of stable cycles recently I anticipate that in future the release branches will be updated more frequently. This will make it even more important to use a tag, rather than a branch, to track the releases using git.
