Since CMake builds in less than 1 minute on my computer I just use
a single source tree and build tree for all branches.
For bigger projects, you can use local clones as Michael suggested
git clone git://cmake.org/cmake.git CMake
git clone CMake CMakeMyWork1
git clone CMake CMakeMyWork2
This will use hard-links to save disk space locally. However,
the "origin" of the latter clones will point at the first one.
This is easily corrected by using
git config remote.origin.url git://cmake.org/cmake.git
or just being careful about how you fetch/push in each repo.
In call cases you can still configure the same pushurl:
git config remote.origin.pushurl git at cmake.org:cmake.git
in every repo.
