You can also have multiple branches in one working copy. Git calls
that concept "tracked branches". You can have as many branches in a
(local) repository as you want and some of them, if not all, can be
tracking branches, which means when they created, they point to a
remote branch in the repo you've cloned from (aka 'origin') or indeed
any other, and pull in changes from there.
