GIT-UPLOAD-PACK(1) Git Manual GIT-UPLOAD-PACK(1)
git-upload-pack - Send objects packed back to git-fetch-pack
git-upload-pack [--[no-]strict] [--timeout=<n>] [--stateless-rpc]
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.
Do not try <directory>/.git/ if <directory> is no Git directory.
Interrupt transfer after <n> seconds of inactivity.
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.
Used by git-http-backend(1) to serve up
$GIT_URL/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack requests. See "Smart
Clients" in the HTTP transfer protocols documentation and "HTTP
Transport" in the Git Wire Protocol, Version 2 documentation. Also
understood by git-receive-pack(1).
The repository to sync from.
Internal variable used for handshaking the wire protocol. Server
admins may need to configure some transports to allow this variable
to be passed. See the discussion in git(1).
