Change incorrect uses of "remote branch" meaning "remote-tracking"
"remote branch" is a branch hosted in a remote repository, while "remote-tracking branch" is a copy of such branch, hosted locally. The distinction is subtle when the copy is up-to-date, but rather fundamental to understand what "git fetch" and "git push" do. This patch should fix all incorrect usages in Documentation/ directory.
