git-http-push - Push objects over HTTP/DAV to another repository
'git http-push' [--all] [--dry-run] [--force] [--verbose] <URL> <ref> [<ref>...]
Sends missing objects to remote repository, and updates the
remote branch.
*NOTE*: This command is temporarily disabled if your libcurl
is older than 7.16, as the combination has been reported
not to work and sometimes corrupts repository.
Do not assume that the remote repository is complete in its
current state, and verify all objects in the entire local
ref's history exist in the remote repository.
Usually, the command refuses to update a remote ref that
is not an ancestor of the local ref used to overwrite it.
This flag disables the check. What this means is that
the remote repository can lose commits; use it with
Do everything except actually send the updates.
Report the list of objects being walked locally and the
list of objects successfully sent to the remote repository.
Remove <ref> from remote repository. The specified branch
cannot be the remote HEAD. If -d is specified the following
other conditions must also be met:
- Remote HEAD must resolve to an object that exists locally
- Specified branch resolves to an object that exists locally
- Specified branch is an ancestor of the remote HEAD
The remote refs to update.
A '<ref>' specification can be either a single pattern, or a pair
of such patterns separated by a colon ":" (this means that a ref name
cannot have a colon in it). A single pattern '<name>' is just a
shorthand for '<name>:<name>'.
Each pattern pair '<src>:<dst>' consists of the source side (before
the colon) and the destination side (after the colon). The ref to be
pushed is determined by finding a match that matches the source side,
and where it is pushed is determined by using the destination side.
- It is an error if '<src>' does not match exactly one of the
local refs.
- If '<dst>' does not match any remote ref, either
* it has to start with "refs/"; <dst> is used as the
destination literally in this case.
* <src> == <dst> and the ref that matched the <src> must not
exist in the set of remote refs; the ref matched <src>
locally is used as the name of the destination.
Without `--force`, the <src> ref is stored at the remote only if
<dst> does not exist, or <dst> is a proper subset (i.e. an
ancestor) of <src>. This check, known as "fast-forward check",
is performed in order to avoid accidentally overwriting the
remote ref and lose other peoples' commits from there.
With `--force`, the fast-forward check is disabled for all refs.
Optionally, a <ref> parameter can be prefixed with a plus '+' sign
to disable the fast-forward check only on that ref.
