git-http-fetch - Download from a remote Git repository via HTTP
git http-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w <filename>] [--recover] [--stdin | --packfile=<hash> | <commit>] <URL>
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.
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>] --packfile=<hash> For internal use only. Instead of a commit id on the command line (which is not expected in this case), git http-fetch fetches the packfile directly at the given URL and uses index-pack to generate corresponding .idx and .keep files. The hash is used to determine the name of the temporary file and is arbitrary. The output of index-pack is printed to stdout. Requires --index-pack-args. --index-pack-args=<args> For internal use only. The command to run on the contents of the downloaded pack. Arguments are URL-encoded separated by spaces. --recover Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted.
