When following the instructions of this page, to download source, my ~/unity/unity-next becomes a branch, but the folder is empty. How can I download the source of Unity Next?

Here are what seems to be the latest directions:

mkdir ~/unity

fetch Unity 8 source:

sudo apt-get install bzr
bzr branch lp:unity/8.0 ~/unity/unity8
cd ~/unity/unity8

The directions are from this page, which is relatively new.

I just tried it and it produced the bazaar unity8 repo in the my ~/unity/unity8 directory, including the whole tree of source and various other files.
