> Thanks @magicus  for updating the download message and thanks @edvbld for shedding some light on how to properly define an upstream for pull requests :) If I understand you correct, with that setup a `git fetch upstream` will fetch *all* pull requests from upstream. Is that correct?

@simonis yep, that is correct. As usual when you fetch refs from a remote they will only becomes refs under `refs/remote/<remote-name>/<branch-name>`, so you won't see all the refs when running e.g. `git branch` (you would have to run `git branch -a`).
