How to clone and get all channels?

https://nest.pijul.com/pijul/thrussh has two channels: main and tokio-0.2
When I clone with pijul clone https://nest.pijul.com/pijul/thrussh, I only get the main channel

$ pijul channel
* main
$ pijul channel switch tokio-0.2
Error: No such channel: tokio-0.2

If you do pijul clone --help, you get the answer: --channel tokio-0.2.

Right, I’m aware of the --channel flag, but it seems it supports only one channel at a time. What if I wanted multiple or all channels available from the remote? What if I’ve already cloned? I tried pijul pull --channel tokio-0.2 --from-channel tokio-0.2 but that polluted the main channel.

Then I tried pijul channel switch tokio-0.2 which of course didn’t work Error: Cannot reset, because there are unrecorded changes, and then pijul reset

Well, this is embarrassing.

pijul had a problem and crashed. To help us diagnose the problem you can send us a crash report.

Alright, I misunderstood your question. I don’t think there’s a way to do that for now. We should provide a pijul channel create to create empty channels, but it doesn’t exist for now.

I’d like to ask you to do two things:

Wait, I just tested this: pijul pull --channel tokio-0.2 creates another channel.

am I doing something wrong?

No. Do you have the latest Pijul?
I really want to see the repository you get, can you send a tarball to pe@pijul.org?

edit: I don’t see that result at all.

Something is not quite right here as well. pijul log matches https://nest.pijul.com/pijul/thrussh:main/changes, but pijul log --channel tokio-0.2 has some bizarre output. I’ll email you the tarball. I’m using 1.0.0 alpha 11
