pull request email notifications, triggered before code is in the target repo

I wanted to do some of my pull-request reviews locally. Then run tests and such forth

So naturally i get an E-mail for the pull request, so i tried to do the following:

 git fetch --tags origin +refs/pull-requests/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

This works when the pull request is created, however when the pull request is updated I get the e-mail telling me but when i re-run the git command to fetch it locally it does not appear in the repository.

It only updates the repo when i view the pull request in my browser, this seems to defeat the point of having a notification.


Is there a reason the pull request notification is triggered before the refs/pull-request/ID is updated ?

This is by design, the merge to +refs/pull-requests/* is not done because it's expensive to do on the Bitbucket server for every commit on every to the source or target,


Therefore it's only done when the pull request is viewed in the UI of bitbucket.
