GIT-UPLOAD-ARCHIVE(1)		  Git Manual		 GIT-UPLOAD-ARCHIVE(1)

NAME
       git-upload-archive - Send archive back to git-archive

SYNOPSIS
       git upload-archive <directory>

DESCRIPTION
       Invoked by git archive --remote and sends a generated archive to	the
       other end over the Git protocol.

       This command is usually not invoked directly by the end user. The UI
       for the protocol	is on the git archive side, and	the program pair is
       meant to	be used	to get an archive from a remote	repository.

SECURITY
       In order	to protect the privacy of objects that have been removed from
       history but may not yet have been pruned, git-upload-archive avoids
       serving archives	for commits and	trees that are not reachable from the
       repository's refs. However, because calculating object reachability is
       computationally expensive, git-upload-archive implements	a stricter but
       easier-to-check set of rules:

	1. Clients may request a commit	or tree	that is	pointed	to directly by
	   a ref. E.g.,	git archive --remote=origin v1.0.

	2. Clients may request a sub-tree within a commit or tree using	the
	   ref:path syntax. E.g., git archive --remote=origin
	   v1.0:Documentation.

	3. Clients may not use other sha1 expressions, even if the end result
	   is reachable. E.g., neither a relative commit like master^ nor a
	   literal sha1	like abcd1234 is allowed, even if the result is
	   reachable from the refs.

       Note that rule 3	disallows many cases that do not have any privacy
       implications. These rules are subject to	change in future versions of
       git, and	the server accessed by git archive --remote may	or may not
       follow these exact rules.

       If the config option uploadArchive.allowUnreachable is true, these
       rules are ignored, and clients may use arbitrary	sha1 expressions. This
       is useful if you	do not care about the privacy of unreachable objects,
       or if your object database is already publicly available	for access via
       non-smart-http.
