Let me play somebody who comes later and wonders about this exchange
three months down the road...

You mention three refs/ here.  Do they live in the same repository?
Any Git person is expected to know refs/heads/master, which is "my
local branch I have worked on and I am pushing".  It also is easy to
guess what "refs/remotes/origin/master" is, even though we are not
talking about a usual Git remote.  It is to keep track of the remote
behind the helper we are pushing into, and is updated to pretend as
if we fetched immediately from the place we just pushed.  The latter
being in sync with what we pushed is something that can naturally be

Now, what is this third "refs/testgit/origin/master" thing?  Is it
expected to always be the same as "refs/remotes/origin/master"?  If
that is the case, why do we even need such a redundant information
in the first place?
