git fetch --prune

-p, --prune
     After fetching, remove any remote-tracking branches which no
     longer exist on the remote.

When you use Git for your repositories, it will be very easy to "fork"
it yourself. So you can easily cherry-pick and backport everything you
want (and test it yourself of course).
