git-upload-pack (1)

Name

git-upload-pack - pack

Synopsis

git-upload-pack [--[no-]strict] [--timeout=<n>] [--stateless-rpc]
[--advertise-refs] <directory>
DESCRIPTION



Invoked by 'git fetch-pack', learns what
objects the other side is missing, and sends them after packing.

This command is usually not invoked directly by the end user.
The UI for the protocol is on the 'git fetch-pack' side, and the
program pair is meant to be used to pull updates from a remote
repository.  For push operations, see 'git send-pack'.


OPTIONS



--[no-]strict
Do not try <directory>/.git/ if <directory> is no Git directory.

--timeout=<n>
Interrupt transfer after <n> seconds of inactivity.

--stateless-rpc
Perform only a single read-write cycle with stdin and stdout. This
fits with the HTTP POST request processing model where a program
may read the request, write a response, and must exit.

--advertise-refs
Only the initial ref advertisement is output, and the program exits
immediately. This fits with the HTTP GET request model, where no
request content is received but a response must be produced.

<directory>
The repository to sync from.
