Cleanup remote git repository of all branches already merged into master

git branch --remotes --merged | grep -v master | sed 's@ origin/@:@' | xargs git push origin
This is useful in teams where developers don't bother to remove branches after merging PR. These branches make it hard to seek for really useful branches, which gives us a nice value of finding and exploring other people's code even before they create PR for it.
