Sorry, stupid git questions follow:
why doesn't "git branch" show me this branch ?
I did a git pull now, which said
Resolving deltas: 100% (192/192), completed with 62 local objects.
>From git://
   d53377a..f902a8f  cmake_tng  -> origin/cmake_tng
 * [new branch]      kio-by-default -> origin/kio-by-default
   83eda0a..3fbf916  master     -> origin/master
 * [new branch]      no-automoc -> origin/no-automoc
 * [new branch]      systemtap  -> origin/systemtap
   8cea8fc..6d4ad57  threaded-streaming -> origin/threaded-streaming
Updating 83eda0a..3fbf916

So I tried "git checkout origin/cmake_tng", which told me other weird things:

hammer:~/src/kde-git/kdesupport/phonon$ git checkout origin/cmake_tng
Note: moving to 'origin/cmake_tng' which isn't a local branch
If you want to create a new branch from this checkout, you may do so
(now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:
  git checkout -b <new_branch_name>
HEAD is now at f902a8f... Merge branch 'cmake_tng' of into 

What do I make out of this ?
