git fetch remote branch and remote ref
how do I fetch a remote branch and update git's local ref for that branch without effecting the current branch? For example if I do this
$ git pull origin master
origin/master is merged into my current branch. This also doesn't work
$ git fetch origin master
As then I check
$ git branch -r -v
origin/HEAD -> origin/master
origin/master 7cf6ec5 test 02
that origin/master ref "7cf6ec5 test 02" is behind. The real origin/master is a "XXXXXX test 03".
git fetch only pulled the changes into FETCH_HEAD it didn't upload the local origin/master ref. What's the step for updating that ref?
$ git fetch origin
Will get all remote refs and update them but unfortunately that's (a) a lot of clutter. (I don't want someone else's 30-50 random branches knowing that someone wouldn't want mine) and (b) as branches are deleted on origin those refs don't get deleted locally the next time I do
git fetch origin which means that path ends up with cruft.
The question is, how do fetch just one branch and update its ref locally?
