Also note the --decorate flag of git log, which adds labels for
branches and tags, like graphical tools such as gitk or SourceTree do.
For that matter, there is also --graph.

I think -a might not do what you want, either. For pull, it is short
for --append and related to the FETCH_HEAD file.

If you just want to download branches and not merge anything into your
current branch, you should use git fetch instead of pull (pull =
fetch&&merge). In case you thought that -a means "--all": git pull
--all does fetch from all remote repositories, but would still attempt
to merge the upstream of your current branch.

Kind regards,
