I think it is just spelled:

  echo $reference_repo >>.git/objects/info/alternates
  git fetch

We need "--reference" with clone because that first line needs to happen
after clone runs "git init" but before it runs "git fetch". And if you
cloned with --reference, of course, the alternates file remains and
further fetches will automatically use it.
