No completion offered for remote branch in git push #3035

The command to push a local branch to a remote branch is:

git push remote_name local_branch:remote_branch

Fish does tab completion when typing local_branch, but does not complete when typing the remote_branch in the above command. The remote_branch completion works fine in other commands like git merge remote_name/remote_branch

Fish version: 2.2.0
Operating system: Ubuntu 14.04

There is another case which doesn't work:

git push remote_name 1245ac417df667b314f0344ac24d54ce4374b1f7:remote_branch

Here fish doesn't provide any completion for the remote_branch. If I type a space after : the completions work.
Running 3.0.2 here.
Is this the same issue or should I open new one?

When there is already a "src:", we assume that it is a valid ref and
just complete "dst". This allows completion of dest if src is e.g. a
commit SHA (completing all possible refs would probably impact

See issue #3035.
