For what I think is improved readability, I made it possible to supply the patterns as an array of strings, so we can have multiple separate patterns. It's still possible to define "branches" as a comma separated list, for backwards compatibility.

Going forward, I think it's good to always clone all repos the same way, regardless of configuration.

It happens a bit too often that a repo maintainer changes tags, which currently causes error for any mirroring job because we aren't force pushing tags. I don't think we ever want to not force update when mirroring repos.
