-\code{repo sync} will synchronize the files for all the source
+\code{repo sync -c} will synchronize the files for all the source
 repositories listed in the manifest. If you have a slow connection to
 the Internet, this could even take a few hours to
 complete. Fortunately, your instructor will take advantage of this
 waiting time to continue with the lectures.
+The \code{-c} option makes it download only the branch we will be
+using, speeding up the download.
 We are using the \code{-jX} option of \code{repo sync} to have \code{X}
 downloads in parallel. Otherwise, if the source repositories are fetched
 sequencially, a lot of time and available network bandwidth is wasted
