Change incorrect "remote branch" to "remote tracking branch" in C code
(Just like we did for documentation already) In the process, we change "non-remote branch" to "branch outside the refs/remotes/ hierarchy" to avoid the ugly "non-remote-tracking branch". The new formulation actually corresponds to how the code detects this case (i.e. prefixcmp(refname, "refs/remotes")). Also, we use 'remote-tracking branch' in generated merge messages (by merge an fmt-merge-msg). Signed-off-by: Matthieu Moy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
