Git: Remove information on branches that were deleted on origin

When branches get deleted on origin, your local repository won't take notice of that.

You'll still have your locally cached versions of those branches (which is actually good) but git branch -a will still list them as remote branches.

You can clean up that information locally like this:

git remote prune origin

Your local copies of deleted branches are not removed by this.

The same effect is achieved by using (kudos to Julien Archive ):

git fetch --prune

You could also set that as a default.

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
Rails LTS provides security patches for unsupported versions of Ruby on Rails (2.3, 3.2, 4.2 and 5.2).
