-a, \--append::
Append ref names and object names of fetched refs to the
existing contents of `.git/FETCH_HEAD`. Without this
option old data in `.git/FETCH_HEAD` will be overwritten.
-f, \--force::
When `git-fetch` is used with `<rbranch>:<lbranch>`
refspec, it refuses to update the local branch
`<lbranch>` unless the remote branch `<rbranch>` it
fetches is a descendant of `<lbranch>`. This option
overrides that check.
-t, \--tags::
By default, the git core utilities will not fetch and store
tags under the same name as the remote repository; ask it
to do so using `--tags`. Using this option will bound the
list of objects pulled to the remote tags. Commits in branches
beyond the tags will be ignored.
-u, \--update-head-ok::
By default `git-fetch` refuses to update the head which
corresponds to the current branch. This flag disables the
check. Note that fetching into the current branch will not
update the index and working directory, so use it with care.
