I believe

  s/.$/, but you should specify an apropriate one as described above./

Would be better.

Not really. This particular fetch does work, and it's tricky to
explain all the reasons why, even if you update the server ref before
fetching. The reason it's written this way is that it comes from from
a branch of mine that has a hack to make the push above works, and
since the transport-helper's push doesn't update the ref in this
version, the test did actually do something and was working.

I am removing the test because we don't care if it works or not,
remote-helpers should not be doing that. The fact that the test wasn't
actually doing anything is icing on the cake.
