#2311 closed change (fixed) should fetch and track remote Git branches when required

The script does not currently fetch and track remote Git branches before trying to check out the specified revision. This means that it is not easy to specify a branch name as the revision for a dependency during development. You first need to manually track the remote branch and then re-run the script.

What to change

Update the script in the buildtools repository so that it fetches and tracks _at least_ all the remote branches that are specified in dependency files. (Make sure that is done before attempting to check them out.)

(For some guidance Sebastian has written how this might be achieved here.)
