git-local-fetch - Duplicate another git repository on a local system
THIS COMMAND IS DEPRECATED.
Duplicates another git repository on a local system.
Get the commit objects.
Get trees associated with the commit objects.
Get all the objects.
Report what is downloaded.
Instead of regular file-to-file copying use symbolic links to the objects in the remote repository.
Before attempting symlinks (if -s is specified) or file-to-file copying the remote objects, try to hardlink the remote objects into the local repository.
Never attempt to file-to-file copy remote objects. Only useful with -s or -l command-line options.
Writes the commit-id into the filename under $GIT_DIR/refs/<filename> on the local end after the transfer is complete.
Instead of a commit id on the command line (which is not expected in this case), git-local-fetch expects lines on stdin in the format
Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted.
