Curiously, gmail's web interface appears to have started doing
this only recently.  I've noticed it when trying to respond to
others too.

Hmm; I don't recall ever doing that.  But I just realised that
my "html" branch is stuck at 1.7.7:

    $ git branch -v -v | grep html
      html   8fb66e5 [origin/html] Autogenerated HTML docs for 

Is it possible that upto that point, the main git.git repo did
carry this branch also?  I have 3 remotes:

    $ git remote -v
    gc  https://code.google.com/p/git-core (fetch)
    gc  https://code.google.com/p/git-core (push)
    ghgit       git://github.com/git/git.git (fetch)
    ghgit       git://github.com/git/git.git (push)
    origin      git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git (fetch)
    origin      git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git (push)

and all 3 of them carry this branch:

    $ git branch -a -v -v | grep html
      html                  8fb66e5 [origin/html] Autogenerated HTML docs for 
      remotes/gc/html       8fb66e5 Autogenerated HTML docs for 
      remotes/ghgit/html    8fb66e5 Autogenerated HTML docs for 
      remotes/origin/html   8fb66e5 Autogenerated HTML docs for 

Even if I had, at one point, added a remote specifically for
html, I am sure it could not have created those refs!

So I tried a prune:

    $ git remote update --prune
    Fetching origin
     x [deleted]         (none)     -> origin/html
     x [deleted]         (none)     -> origin/man
    Fetching ghgit
     x [deleted]         (none)     -> ghgit/html
     x [deleted]         (none)     -> ghgit/man
    Fetching gc
     x [deleted]         (none)     -> gc/html
     x [deleted]         (none)     -> gc/man

and now I'm on par with the rest of you ;-)

You can do even more!  If you don't find a suitable website for
this, it's trivial to host it yourself.  You can host it on your
intranet, if you have one.
