NAME

git-http-fetch − Download from a remote Git repository via HTTP

SYNOPSIS

git http−fetch [−c] [−t] [−a] [−d] [−v] [−w filename] [−−recover] [−−stdin] <commit> <url>

DESCRIPTION

Downloads a remote Git repository via HTTP.

This command always gets all objects. Historically, there were three options −a, −c and −t for choosing which objects to download. They are now silently ignored.

OPTIONS

commit−id

Either the hash or the filename under [URL]/refs/ to pull.

−a, −c, −t

These options are ignored for historical reasons.

−v

Report what is downloaded.

−w <filename>

Writes the commit−id into the filename under $GIT_DIR/refs/<filename> on the local end after the transfer is complete.

−−stdin

Instead of a commit id on the command line (which is not expected in this case), git http−fetch expects lines on stdin in the format

<commit−id>['\t'<filename−as−in−−w>]

−−recover

Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted.
