=================
NAME
----
git-http-fetch - Download from a remote Git repository via HTTP
SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
'git http-fetch' [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w <filename>] [--recover] [--stdin | --packfile=<hash> | <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>]
--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.
