This change was already done by 0e615b252f3 (Matthieu Moy, Tue Nov 2 2010, Replace "remote tracking" with "remote-tracking"), but new instances of remote tracking (without dash) were introduced in the meantime.
Signed-off-by: Matthieu Moy <matthieu....@imag.fr> --- Here's the patch. I'm not opposed to dropping completely the remote-tracking part in the case of merge (i.e. "remote-tracking branches that the current branch is configured to use as its upstream" -> "upstream branch") on top of that, but if we do this, merge-config.txt should be updated too).
