SYNOPSIS

git http-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w filename] [--recover] [--stdin] <commit> <url>

DESCRIPTION

Downloads a remote git repository via HTTP.

OPTIONS

commit-id

Either the hash or the filename under [URL]/refs/ to pull.

-c

Get the commit objects.

-t

Get trees associated with the commit objects.

-a

Get all the objects.

-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>]
--recover

Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted.
