When scanning for the right type of SCMTool for a repository, we ask

get something useful out of it, we assume the tool is valid.
The Git tool is asking for that data and is computing the tracking
branch up-front, in all cases.
That seems odd though. Maybe I miss something; if you're asking for a
specific revision range, would not the first revision in the range
always be the tracking branch? (It seems offhand it would be, but as I
say, I'm not convinced if I miss something. If that /is/ the case,
though, this would be the logical way to work around this issue.)
Also would be good to know, as this is how I am working around the issue
It might be nice to only fetch when we
need it, and we know there's a lot of work that needs to be done to
refactor this code and clean it up. Would you mind filing a bug to help
us track this?
