SYNOPSIS

. "$(git --exec-path)/git-parse-remote"

DESCRIPTION

This script is included in various scripts to supply routines to parse files under $GIT_DIR/remotes/ and $GIT_DIR/branches/ and configuration variables that are related to fetching, pulling and pushing.

The primary entry points are:

get_remote_refs_for_fetch

Given the list of user-supplied <repo> <refspec>..., return the list of refs to fetch after canonicalizing them into $GIT_DIR relative paths (e.g. refs/heads/foo). When <refspec>... is empty the returned list of refs consists of the defaults for the given <repo>, if specified in $GIT_DIR/remotes/, $GIT_DIR/branches/, or remote.*.fetch configuration.

get_remote_refs_for_push

Given the list of user-supplied <repo> <refspec>..., return the list of refs to push in a form suitable to be fed to the git-send-pack command. When <refspec>... is empty the returned list of refs consists of the defaults for the given <repo>, if specified in $GIT_DIR/remotes/.
