What did you do before the bug happened? (Steps to reproduce your issue)


We have three repos bt,bt2,bt3 where bt2 is a clone of bt and bt3 is a  
clone of bt2.
All remote destinations remain unchanged (pointing to the repo before).

Step 1: I'm creating a branch "b11" in bt, committing it.
Step 2: Going to bt2, doing git pull --all.
Step 3: Going to bt3, doing git pull --all.


What did you expect to happen? (Expected behavior)

The branch b11 is usable in bt3 also

What happened instead? (Actual behavior)

Either doing
Step 2a: If I'm doing a git checkout b11 in bt2 before Step 3
The branch b11 is also usable in bt3
This works

or doing
Step 2b: If I'm doing a fetch by name 'fetch origin master:master bt11:bt11"
This works

But if I'm only pushing through from bt to bt3 without doing checkout in bt2
the b11 is no more usable in bt3 when omitting step 2a or2b


What's different between what you expected and what actually happened?

The pull output did show me that there changes are tracked. But
only if a checkout in bt2 in the middle was made before the content
of the changes made within the origin change are really coming through to bt3



Anything else you want to add:

This might not be necessarily a bug. If this behavior is intended please
close it. It would be instead of that be nice if some guideline would exist
to deal with changes wired through a cascade of repositories in  
different branches.
As seen on the internet many people are asking for a solution for that.


Please review the rest of the bug report below.

This is the expected behavior. The branches in a repository (what you
see when you run "git branch" with no arguments") are different from the
remote-tracking refs (what you see when you run "git branch -r", and
which are updated by "git fetch"). You can't track another repository's
remote-tracking refs with your remote-tracking refs, just its actual
branches.

The part which may be confusing is that "git checkout", as a shortcut,
lets you attempt to check out a branch that does not exist, and if a
branch with the same name exists on a remote, it will create the branch
and set it up to track that remote branch.

If you wanted to fetch branches from multiple other repositories,
though, you would ordinarily add those repositores as remotes, rather
than pushing everything through a single existing remote.

Hope that helps.
