are not part of the current project most users will want to expire
them sooner. This option defaults to '30 days'.
+The above two configuration variables can be given to a pattern. For
+example, this sets non-default expiry values only to remote tracking
+branches:
+
+------------
+[gc "refs/remotes/*"]
