How to display available branches in Android source tree?

Following directions on Android's main website to pull down sources, I'm looking at this command to initialize repo for the cupcake branch:

repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git -b cupcake


How can I view all available branches besides cupcake, i.e eclair, donut, etc...?

Answer

It doesn't seem to be possible using the "repo" script, but you can query the list of available branches using git:

$ git clone http://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest.git
$ cd manifest
$ git branch -r

If you don't want to clone the repository just for this, you can see the branches on the web interface.
