For a successfully pushed ref, the summary shows the old and new
values of the ref in a form suitable for using as an argument to
`git log` (this is `<old>..<new>` in most cases, and
- `<old>...<new>` for forced non-fast-forward updates). For a
- failed update, more details are given for the failure.
- The string `rejected` indicates that git did not try to send the
- ref at all (typically because it is not a fast-forward). The
- string `remote rejected` indicates that the remote end refused
- the update; this rejection is typically caused by a hook on the
- remote side. The string `remote failure` indicates that the
- remote end did not report the successful update of the ref
- (perhaps because of a temporary error on the remote side, a
- break in the network connection, or other transient error).
