gbp clone and the pristine-tar branch




Hi, 

I have a question following https://honk.sigxcpu.org/piki/development/debian_packages_in_git/ --
`gbp clone` will create the pristine-tar branch, right? 

After initially cloning with gbp clone you can run gbp pull to update your debian, upstream and pristine-tar branches from the remote site. So the complete workflow for simple team maintenance looks like this:
# Initially clone the repo once
gbp clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-libvirt/gtk-vnc.git

But having done that, I'm still not getting the pristine-tar branch. 

I tried, 

gbp clone https://github.com/neurobin/shc.git

then

gbp clone --pristine-tar https://github.com/neurobin/shc.git

but in both case, I got:

$ git branch -v
* master  556fd7a release after fix #38
  release 379c501 release after fix #38

and `gbp pull` is not helping either, as oppose to, 

you can run gbp pull to update your debian, upstream and pristine-tar branches

$ gbp pull
gbp:info: Fetching from default remote for each branch
gbp:info: Branch 'master' is already up to date.

$ gbp pull --all
gbp:info: Fetching from default remote for each branch
gbp:info: Branch 'master' is already up to date.
gbp:info: Branch 'release' is already up to date.

$ apt-cache policy git-buildpackage
git-buildpackage:
  Installed: 0.9.9
  Candidate: 0.9.9
  Version table:
 *** 0.9.9 100
         50 http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages

     0.8.12.2 500
        500 http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages


What I'm missing? 
How can I get the pristine tarball from upstream? 

thx
