pull: suppress error when no remoteref is found
Commit 48059e4 (pull: use merge-base --fork-point when appropriate, 2013-12-08) incorrectly assumes that get_remote_merge_branch will either yield a non-empty string or return an error, but there are circumstances where it will yield an empty string. The previous code then invoked git-rev-list with no arguments, which results in an error suppressed by redirecting stderr to /dev/null. Now we invoke git-merge-base with an empty branch name, which also results in an error. Suppress this in the same way. Signed-off-by: John Keeping <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
