I have configured a shallow clone, but in the logs I see
git -c core.askpass=true fetch --tags --progress ssh://git.example.com/example.git +refs/heads/:refs/remotes/origin/ --depth=1
1. --tags is contrary to my purpose. Fetching all tags is a lot.
2. The refspec does not seem to obey what I have configured...this is downloading all refs.
I am interested in only one ref (hence the shallow clone). I should be able to configure it to do
git -c core.askpass=true fetch --progress ssh://git.example.com/example.git +refs/heads/my-branch:refs/remotes/origin/my-branch --depth=1
If there is a way to get this behavior, let me know.
