Ah, I see. Guess I've never used that view.

IMO it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to have the upstream
repo branches in your fork, since they're not kept in sync after the
fork. e.g. is a few years
behind the current master... I never actually use my own fork's
master, it's just there because github created it when I forked.

But hey, maybe there's some workflow I'm not familiar with. Whatever works.
