Documentation: correct example restore from bundle
Because the bundle created in the example does not record HEAD, "git clone" will not check out the files to the working tree: $ git clone pr.bundle q/ Cloning into 'q'... Receiving objects: 100% (619/619), 13.52 MiB | 18.74 MiB/s, done. Resolving deltas: 100% (413/413), done. warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout. Avoid alarming the readers by adding "-b master" to the example. A better fix may be to arrange the bundle created in the earlier step to record HEAD, so that it can be cloned without this workaround.
