I will need to check why my system is showing old man pages. I am running
something compiled from the git tree on kernel.org.

This is what appears in the documentation we ship these days.
This is a short-hand for giving "refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*"
refspec from the command line, to ask all tags to be fetched
and stored locally. Because this acts as an explicit
refspec, the default refspecs (configured with the
remote.$name.fetch variable) are overridden and not used.
