push.default: Rename 'tracking' to 'upstream'
Users are sometimes confused with two different types of "tracking" behavior in Git: "remote-tracking" branches (e.g. refs/remotes/*/*) versus the merge/rebase relationship between a local branch and its @{upstream} (controlled by and config settings). When the push.default is set to 'tracking', it specifies that a branch should be pushed to its @{upstream} branch. In other words, setting push.default to 'tracking' applies only to the latter of the above two types of "tracking" behavior. In order to make this more understandable to the user, we rename the push.default == 'tracking' option to push.default == 'upstream'. push.default == 'tracking' is left as a deprecated synonym for 'upstream'.
