Yes, sorry. I find “fetch” kind of awkward when used in informal
context, since “pull” is a general concept universally understood
among different DVCSs whereas the pull/fetch distinction that git
makes, in the way that git makes it, is not universal. And I was
trying to speak in conceptual terms rather than implementation.
The vernacular has not settled down enough quite yet and the
difference in everyone’s conception of the terms can make it
frustrating to try to convey ideas at the right level.

Yes, exactly. And then check which relevant remote branches have
new stuff and smoke them in turn.
