I came across this issue the other day while trying to optimise a fetch to a 
repo with release branches named release-X.X.X. I wanted to just fetch just 
those branches but because of the trailing slash rule I couldn't. The following 
StackOverflow post has details of the issue:


The trailing slash rule appears to be introduced in 46220ca and further 
tightened in b2a5627

Before I go ahead and look at what needs to be done for a patch I thought it 
would be polite to ask if there is any reasoning behind the trailing slash rule 
that I'm missing? Or if you are interested in changing this behavior at all.
