[PD-dev] Pull-request: deken plugin with commit history

Still a git newbie...

I added github as a remote OK, but then "git fetch github" doesn;t seem to
get me anything.  Also tried "git fetch github deken-plugin-history-merged"
which prints out:

>From github.com:pure-data/pure-data
 * branch            deken-plugin-history-merged -> FETCH_HEAD

but then I get:

[msp at fuzz pd]$ git branch
* master

So I think there's something I'm not getting...
