GIT-UPLOAD-PACK(1)             Git Manual             GIT-UPLOAD-PACK(1)

NAME         top

       git-upload-pack - Send objects packed back to git-fetch-pack

SYNOPSIS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

           Do not try <directory>/.git/ if <directory> is no Git

           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

           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

           The repository to sync from.
