as suggested in: http://www.gromacs.org/Developer_Zone/Roadmap/GROMACS_4.6

i do:

prompt> git clone git://git.gromacs.org/gromacs.git
Cloning into 'gromacs'...
remote: Counting objects: 119131, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (21428/21428), done.

Resolving deltas: 100% (100642/100642), done.

and then:

prompt> git checkout --track -b release-4-6 origin/release-4-6
fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

if cd to gromacs directory first:

prompt> cd gromacs
prompt> git checkout --track -b release-4-6 origin/release-4-6
Branch release-4-6 set up to track remote branch release-4-6 from origin.
Switched to a new branch 'release-4-6'
prompt> git pull
Already up-to-date.

i am not sure if this is what i want ... the source i have there is still 4.5.5 or is it not?
... nothing seems to have been downloaded after the first command ...
how do i get the source of the 4.6 development branch?
is there a way to simply get a tar-ball ?
