Hi everybody,

whenever I clone a Git repo from within the 2019-12 Eclipse via "File > Import... > Projects from Git" I get an individual fetch entry in origin's remote section of the local config for each branch.

This is an extract for a remote repo that only has a master branch:

Eclipse 2019-12
[remote "origin"]
	fetch = +refs/heads/master:refs/remotes/origin/master


Eclipse 2019-09
[remote "origin"]
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*


I haven't found anything in the Egit/Jgit Changelog, nor in the forums, so is this really desired behaviour?

Might it have to do with the switch to the FileReftableDatabase of JGit as announced here?: https://wiki.eclipse.org/JGit/New_and_Noteworthy/5.6

Best regards
Rice

It will be better to ask on the EGit forum: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/48/
