branch permissions

There're some branches, main branch is master, and others are dev(basic on master), dev1(basic on dev), dev2(basic on dev), and I set dev1's permission belongs to jack, and dev2's permission belongs to dustin, master and dev don't belong to anyone, and Jack clones this repo, I think he can't clone dev2 which belongs to dustin, he only can clone dev1, but it seems not, Jack can clone all branches contain dev2 whose permission belongs to dustin, so is it a bug? Thanks.

Branch permissions only affect the ability of a user to push to that branch, not their ability to read it.  If they have read permission on the repository (or project), they have read permission on all branches within it.
