Thankyou Lori, Nitesh,

So you are saying is that

  *   upstream/RELEASE_*_* is created from your end with the next BioC release.
  *   The git error message arises because upstream/RELEASE_3_11 does not exist to copy the contents of (locally created) RELEASE_3_11 into.

The points under http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/faq/ #14 did work for me, but the above explanation makes sense.

Newly accepted packages are added into devel only.  They will be a release branch as soon as the next scheduled Bioconductor release occurs.

Dear Bioc Core,

Thank you for accepting multicrispr on BioC<https://secure-web.cisco.com/1Y5aHfpLYwxVOA6Cj3bxEVuenqe6D8K2mYcqfAmwz6Fi6eyzj9ZL85VY2H0PZrFkpkFbO_w5JIWkUIDUjYSFPRsOWFmm_pDVgAJBRmO1uCb9LgJF5mh_FUnj2zUAPVJbk9HPy9BzwWn8pHCQOyHp9T_xfBrl1tFAkt7ZrYGptTyl0u1HYKnjYTmc-l5OjWQoyG3bIOTfYV1lc_cNItl7XwfDdyx4NkyoksEKEZfvA_2PlrkF8te0_49BJxVw47JVUK1Tjj-F-nuVxx2gAF3nDoPiQl1f5bOcc1zKgTYrgh1x2so6QfUHbqu_M7rEFHBQ9OFgeC30W0bOLRd4YEfu5XA/https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2FBioconductor%2FContributions%2Fissues%2F1486>.
I was going through the instructions on how to sync existing repositories<https://secure-web.cisco.com/1Xe9o5uhiFHsFKbmSBGQuqpBQbV-hql0tIGwW7TBNOQyRT67-xND5I-TSMoVXC2pXrgYxNb-5-sPbt5rOOjgawuDHJv7Y7yJFhVBV51tIj9xSy4Nk-GlEPEtV_1RG79MZbJ5d7LZ82dFp-BZmzPwrjKRAib7x8vphKaRW4qc_q6EIPMOrs282w4JaJxxRd-Jsxi6X_gw41rihMwaTa84WG62bi5im6SkX3hoyYq6qwitZdOiUeNN9FYJHB_VREnXcM16haB2xWae5BwiJJdtuP3Y1T-wW9L0HnO14_bhkOd794PH_lDa0cdICiv2NVJVoaSyYZK93SX5T2wpON1FgO_xhi1D5Z45H163FH75DerE/https%3A%2F%2Fbioconductor.org%2Fdevelopers%2Fhow-to%2Fgit%2Fsync-existing-repositories%2F>.
All instructions up to point 9 work.

Point 10, however fails, when creating the release branch:
$ git checkout -b RELEASE_3_11 upstream/RELEASE_3_11
fatal: 'upstream/RELEASE_3_11' is not a commit and a branch 'RELEASE_3_11' cannot be created  from it

I wonder what I am doing wrong (seems like it should be something trivial, but I am not seeing it).

Thank you for helping!
