-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.
\--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.
-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
-k, \--keep::
Keep downloaded pack.
-u, \--update-head-ok::
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.
Deepen the history of a 'shallow' repository created by
`git clone` with `--depth=<depth>` option (see gitlink:git-clone[1])
by the specified number of commits.
