Setting up Git to fetch all remote branches
I somehow ended up with a git configuration with the following in the [remote] section:
fetch = +refs/heads/master:refs/remotes/origin/master
This of course means that I would never ever see branches that my collaborators have added. I realize that I need to change this to:
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
but I am confused as to why my configuration ended up this way in the first place, and more importantly, how I can avoid it ever happening again. Any idea how to set up a repo so that it does not do this?
