GIT-HTTP-FETCH(1)		  Git Manual		     GIT-HTTP-FETCH(1)

NAME
       git-http-fetch -	Download from a	remote Git repository via HTTP

SYNOPSIS
       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>
	   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.

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