The reversed order of these two definitions looks somewhat unusual.
I guess the reason why you made FETCH true and PUSH false is
probably because quite a lot of places in the existing code we do

	if (fetch)
		do the fetch thing;
		do the push thing;

i.e. "fetch" variable is used as "is this a fetch: yes/no?"
boolean, and a caller that mysteriously passes "1" (or "0")
is harder to read than necessary.  Being able to pass REFSPEC_PUSH
instead of "0" would certainly make the caller easier to read.  But
as long as the variable is understood as "is_fetch? Yes/no", the
caller can pass Yes or No and be still descriptive enough.

I think the way to make such a code more readable would not be to
rewrite the above to

	if (fetch_or_push)
		do the fetch thing;
		do the push thing;

Rather it would be 

	if (fetch_or_push == REFSPEC_FETCH)
		do the fetch thing;
		do the push thing;

And once you have gone that far, the actual "enum" value assignment
no longer makes difference.
