I'd like to be able to pull a branch that I don't currently have checked out. I'm able to do that via git bash with a single command (see example above), but I'm not able to do that from the Sublime Merge command palette. When I try "fetch origin silver:silver" from the command palette, it doesn't let me submit the command.
The command palette is great because it tries to help with things it knows I want, and prevent me from doing things it thinks is wrong. In this case though, it's preventing me from doing something that is valid, I suspect because it thinks it's invalid.
