[PATCH] Added --mirror-all to git-fetch.

From: Shawn Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>
Date: 2006-09-20 09:28:51
The --mirror-all option to git-fetch can be used to obtain a copy of
every available remote ref into the current repository.  This can be
a rather destructive update as the local repository will have its
HEAD ref overwritten, as well as any ref which it shares in common
with the remote repository.  On the other hand it can be useful if
all you want to do is have this repository track another repository,
such as if you are providing Git repository hosting and mirroring
source repositories on other systems.

Currently local refs are not deleted even if they do not exist in the
remote repository.  This may be taken as either a feature or a bug.
