I just tried:

git clone --recursive -b develop git_at_[hidden]:boostorg/boost.git boost-develop

And that worked fine.

I think you're doing a recursive clone of master and then switching to
the branch. In which case I think you need to use 'git submodule
update --init' to initialise modules on this branch before updating
(untested and possibly wrong).

Will most developers use this though? I imagine they'd check out the
master and then use develop for the modules they care about.
