Thanks for spotting. The actual original intention was that the
user says two things:
first saying "add only what does not match '*' out of all
branches" and then saying "add all branches, without any
exclusion this time".
But letting the user first say one thing and then doing another
thing without saying it is also fine, which is what your version is.
