Thanks for the reply.
but i don't quiet get it, since its a bare repo i'm not worried about 
merging the tree.
the remote and bare-repo have diverged, i want to get that latest data from 
remote (latest commits, tags etc..). if this doesn't happen, my bare-repo 
will always
be out-of-date,maybe i'm using the wrong command. git fetch doesn't seem to 
the right command for the job. i hope i'm clear now.

thanks again..
