| $ git pull git:// ALL <5>

Would I be right that "ALL" can simply be dropped as something from 'back then' (13 Dec 2005 v0.99.9-516-g44db136) that I'm ignorant of?

| <5> fetch from a specific branch from a specific repository and merge.
| <6> revert the pull.
| <7> garbage collect leftover objects from reverted pull.
| <8> from time to time, obtain official tags from the `origin`
| and store them under `.git/refs/tags/`.

This example works directly on 'master', which is not ideal.  If I
were writing this today, I would have made it work on 'mine' branch,
produced a patch series out of that branch relative to @{u}, threw
in 'git send-email' invocation, and had "git pull" update the
pristine 'mater' branch after "git checkout master".  Merging of
work by jgarzik (i.e. not your upstream) would also have gone to its
own branch, not to 'master'.

Slowly working through it ;-)
