I came across an issue with deleting remote branches: When deleting a
branch using "git branch ­r ­d <branch>" the branch is deleted and no
longer shown by "git branch ­r".

"git ls-remote --heads" on the other hand still lists the ref for the last
branch commit.

If I delete the branch using "git push origin :<branch>" the branch is
removed completely (i.e. git ls-remote  no longer returns a ref).

Is this a bug or is this behavior intentional? (I am currently using git
