I was running into some combination of ssh key related problems and git
ignorance. For the record, here's what I had to do to make it work.

1. Ensure the .git/config within mojarra~git had the correct
and for I'm not sure if this actually was

2. Make sure to fetch the 2.2.8 remote branch

3. manually set up local branch 2.2.8-test to track origin/2.2.8

Even so, I'm still not that confident I would be able to reproduce it
again in a fresh environment.

Bottom line, the branches are set up correctly in the git repo.
