Add fetch command to Repository explorer #470
just installed Gitlens and it looks great!
My working folder is currently behind the remote repository what I can see when looking at github, but that isn't signaled in gitlens. Also if I call compare with working folder in the Remotes branch nothing is displayed.
Yes, I just had the same issue. I'm more used to a GUI for Git and by clicking the refresh icon in the GitLens sidebar, I assumed that it would do a fetch for me. I checked the Git output logs and I don't see it doing so. My auto-fetch is off as well since I like to know when it occurs.
In addition, another related issue was that I was trying to switch to a new branch and I wanted to see it in the GitLens sidebar. I clicked on the refresh icon and I expected the branch to appear under the Remote section. It didn't see it so I ran a git fetch on the command line and then it appeared.
I'm not sure if you want to add a separate Git fetch button or make it part of the refresh button, but I could also see users getting confused by that.
