Specifying branch arguments to git fetch, merge, and push
If I am working on a branch of a repo, say
devel, what is the difference between the following commands? In this case, I have already added an
$ git fetch upstream devel
* branch devel -> FETCH_HEAD
$ git fetch upstream
remote: Counting objects: 500, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (230/230), done.

* [new branch] appconfig -> upstream/appconfig
* [new branch] check-path -> upstream/check-path
248ff08..4d44a4d ctl-migrate -> upstream/ctl-migrate
2c356d2..bfb8fd3 devel -> upstream/devel
* [new branch] release-0.6.5 -> upstream/release-0.6.5
64b95a4..c0014df shark -> upstream/shark
* [new tag] release/0.6.5-rc11 -> release/0.6.5-rc11
* [new tag] release/0.6.5-rc12 -> release/0.6.5-rc12
How does fetch know what to get if no branch is specified?
Moreover, why is it that the merge command is
$ git merge upstream/devel
but if I want to push the changes to my fork, I need to say
$ git push origin devel
why is there a slash in one case but not the other?
