-a, \--append::
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.
-f, \--force::
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.
By default, `git-fetch` fetches tags that point at
objects that are downloaded from the remote repository
and stores them locally. This option disables this
automatic tag following.
-t, \--tags::
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
-u, \--update-head-ok::
By default `git-fetch` refuses to update the head which
corresponds to the current branch. This flag disables the
check. Note that fetching into the current branch will not
update the index and working directory, so use it with care.
