"remote update": print remote name being fetched from
When the other end has dangling symref, "git fetch" issues an error message but that is not grave enough to cause the fetch process to fail. As the result, the user will see something like this: $ git remote update error: refs/heads/2.0-uobjects points nowhere! "remote update" used to report which remote it is fetching from, like this: $ git remote update Updating core Updating matthieu error: refs/heads/2.0-uobjects points nowhere! Updating origin This reinstates the message "Updating <name>" in "git remote update". Signed-off-by: Samuel Tardieu <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
