Dear Git community,

i think there may be a bug in the fetch command: The command

$ git fetch --all --tags
Fetching origin

doesn’t fetch new commits from origin/master, while i see via the web browser 
of my remote repository that they exist. The same with verbose:

$ git fetch --all --tags --verbose
Fetching origin
From git://
 = [up to date]      Trennmuster-20071020 -> Trennmuster-20071020
 = [up to date]      Trennmuster-20071223 -> Trennmuster-20071223
 = [up to date]      Trennmuster-20080601 -> Trennmuster-20080601
 = [up to date]      dehyph-exptl-v0.1 -> dehyph-exptl-v0.1
 = [up to date]      dehyph-exptl-v0.11 -> dehyph-exptl-v0.11
 = [up to date]      dehyph-exptl-v0.12 -> dehyph-exptl-v0.12
 = [up to date]      dehyph-exptl-v0.12.1 -> dehyph-exptl-v0.12.1
 = [up to date]      dehyph-exptl-v0.13 -> dehyph-exptl-v0.13
 = [up to date]      dehyph-exptl-v0.20 -> dehyph-exptl-v0.20
 = [up to date]      dehyph-exptl-v0.22 -> dehyph-exptl-v0.22
 = [up to date]      dehyph-exptl-v0.23 -> dehyph-exptl-v0.23

Only if i omit the --tags commit, fetch does what i expect:

$ git fetch --all --verbose
Fetching origin
remote: Counting objects: 13, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (8/8), done.
remote: Total 8 (delta 5), reused 0 (delta 0)
Unpacking objects: 100% (8/8), done.
From git://
   7c71430..176027b  master     -> origin/master
 = [up to date] Keine-Haupttrennstellen-in-zweisilbigen-Wörtern -> 
 = [up to date]      python-skripts -> origin/python-skripts

I think this may be a bug; i’m using my git alias fa = fetch --all --tags 
--verbose quite often, and it worked in previous versions of Git.

Finnally, i’m using Git  under Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS x86_64 via this PPA:

Thank you for your time reading this and of cause a happy new year!

With best greetings,
