Hi Alex,

A few direct answers to your questions.

This is new. Last time I cloned the repository it still used trunk as default branch. But you are 
correct that this is no longer the case. A clean clone today checks out master as default branch.

So yes, this section can be removed now.

A word of advice: when saving your wiki edits, please motivate your changes in the summary. 
That helps the part-time moderators to estimate the correctness of your changes. For example 
in this case you could add a summary like "Obsolete section - git clone now uses master as 
default branch".

Your change was fairly ambiguous, though I suspect it just got reverted because it was part of 
your openmp edit. Another tip: make your edits atomic. The subversion/git edit had nothing to 
do with the openmp edit. But since you applied both changes in one commit it was difficult to 
revert only part of it.

You can add back a statement regarding our intended switch to git after the 2.6 release. But 
mention that timing as well then.

I hope that clears some part up.
