Teach "git remote" a mirror mode
When using the "--mirror" option to "git remote add", the refs will not be stored in the refs/remotes/ namespace, but in the same location as on the remote side. This option probably only makes sense in a bare repository. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

With `-m <master>` option, `$GIT_DIR/remotes/<name>/HEAD` is set
up to point at remote's `<master>` branch instead of whatever
branch the `HEAD` at the remote repository actually points at.
+In mirror mode, enabled with `--mirror`, the refs will not be stored
+in the 'refs/remotes/' namespace, but in 'refs/heads/'. This option
