+ used to always write to the standard output. As a preparatory step

+ codepaths have been updated to consistently write into that FILE*

+ * Conversion from unsigned char sha1[20] to struct object_id

+ * Improve the look of the way "git fetch" reports what happened to
+ each ref that was fetched.
