Fetch all remotes.
Append ref names and object names of fetched refs to the
existing contents of `.git/FETCH_HEAD`. Without this
option old data in `.git/FETCH_HEAD` will be overwritten.
Deepen the history of a 'shallow' repository created by
`git clone` with `--depth=<depth>` option (see linkgit:git-clone[1])
by the specified number of commits.
Show what would be done, without making any changes.
When 'git fetch' is used with `<rbranch>:<lbranch>`
refspec, it refuses to update the local branch
`<lbranch>` unless the remote branch `<rbranch>` it
fetches is a descendant of `<lbranch>`. This option
overrides that check.
Keep downloaded pack.
Allow several <repository> and <group> arguments to be
specified. No <refspec>s may be specified.
After fetching, remove any remote-tracking branches which
no longer exist on the remote.
By default, tags that point at objects that are downloaded
from the remote repository are fetched and stored locally.
This option disables this automatic tag following. The default
behavior for a remote may be specified with the remote.<name>.tagopt
setting. See linkgit:git-config[1].
Most of the tags are fetched automatically as branch
heads are downloaded, but tags that do not point at
objects reachable from the branch heads that are being
tracked will not be fetched by this mechanism. This
flag lets all tags and their associated objects be
downloaded. The default behavior for a remote may be
specified with the remote.<name>.tagopt setting. See
This option controls if and under what conditions new commits of
populated submodules should be fetched too. It can be used as a
boolean option to completely disable recursion when set to 'no' or to
unconditionally recurse into all populated submodules when set to
'yes', which is the default when this option is used without any
value. Use 'on-demand' to only recurse into a populated submodule
when the superproject retrieves a commit that updates the submodule's
reference to a commit that isn't already in the local submodule
Disable recursive fetching of submodules (this has the same effect as
using the '--recurse-submodules=no' option).
Prepend <path> to paths printed in informative messages
such as "Fetching submodule foo". This option is used
internally when recursing over submodules.
This option is used internally to temporarily provide a
non-negative default value for the --recurse-submodules
option. All other methods of configuring fetch's submodule
recursion (such as settings in linkgit:gitmodules[5] and
linkgit:git-config[1]) override this option, as does
specifying --[no-]recurse-submodules directly.
By default 'git fetch' refuses to update the head which
corresponds to the current branch. This flag disables the
check. This is purely for the internal use for 'git pull'
to communicate with 'git fetch', and unless you are
implementing your own Porcelain you are not supposed to
use it.
--upload-pack <upload-pack>::
When given, and the repository to fetch from is handled
by 'git fetch-pack', '--exec=<upload-pack>' is passed to
the command to specify non-default path for the command
run on the other end.
Pass --quiet to git-fetch-pack and silence any other internally
used git commands. Progress is not reported to the standard error
Be verbose.
Progress status is reported on the standard error stream
by default when it is attached to a terminal, unless -q
is specified. This flag forces progress status even if the
standard error stream is not directed to a terminal.
