Note that you can have multiple fetch lines, so you can just add a list
of explicit refs you want to fetch.

But I do see your problem, unlike in gcc where the releases are all
under refs/heads/releases/ the binutils and gdb ones are directly under

Maybe the negative refspecs that Andreas mentioned would help here
because all user branches are under /ref/heads/users/ So maybe adding
fetch = ^refs/heads/users/* would do the trick? (untested)
