"fd::<infd>[,<outfd>][/<anything>]" (as URL)
This helper uses specified file descriptors to connect to a remote Git server. This is not
meant for end users but for programs and scripts calling git fetch, push or archive.
If only <infd> is given, it is assumed to be a bidirectional socket connected to remote
Git server (git-upload-pack, git-receive-pack or git-upload-achive). If both <infd> and
<outfd> are given, they are assumed to be pipes connected to a remote Git server (<infd>
being the inbound pipe and <outfd> being the outbound pipe.
It is assumed that any handshaking procedures have already been completed (such as sending
service request for git://) before this helper is started.
<anything> can be any string. It is ignored. It is meant for providing information to user
in the URL in case that URL is displayed in some context.
If set, prints debugging information about various reads/writes.
git fetch fd::17 master
Fetch master, using file descriptor #17 to communicate with git-upload-pack.
git fetch fd::17/foo master
Same as above.
git push fd::7,8 master (as URL)
Push master, using file descriptor #7 to read data from git-receive-pack and file
descriptor #8 to write data to same service.
git push fd::7,8/bar master
Same as above.
