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

NAME
git-fetch-pack - Receive missing objects from another repository SYNOPSIS
git fetch-pack [--all] [--quiet|-q] [--keep|-k] [--thin] [--include-tag] [--upload-pack=<git-upload-pack>] [--depth=<n>] [--no-progress] [-v] <repository> [<refs>...] DESCRIPTION
Usually you would want to use git fetch, which is a higher level wrapper of this command, instead. Invokes git-upload-pack on a possibly remote repository and asks it to send objects missing from this repository, to update the named heads. The list of commits available locally is found out by scanning the local refs/ hierarchy and sent to git-upload-pack running on the other end. This command degenerates to download everything to complete the asked refs from the remote side when the local side does not have a common ancestor commit. OPTIONS
--all Fetch all remote refs. --stdin Take the list of refs from stdin, one per line. If there are refs specified on the command line in addition to this option, then the refs from stdin are processed after those on the command line. If --stateless-rpc is specified together with this option then the list of refs must be in packet format (pkt-line). Each ref must be in a separate packet, and the list must end with a flush packet. -q, --quiet Pass -q flag to git unpack-objects; this makes the cloning process less verbose. -k, --keep Do not invoke git unpack-objects on received data, but create a single packfile out of it instead, and store it in the object database. If provided twice then the pack is locked against repacking. --thin Fetch a "thin" pack, which records objects in deltified form based on objects not included in the pack to reduce network traffic. --include-tag If the remote side supports it, annotated tags objects will be downloaded on the same connection as the other objects if the object the tag references is downloaded. The caller must otherwise determine the tags this option made available. --upload-pack=<git-upload-pack> Use this to specify the path to git-upload-pack on the remote side, if is not found on your $PATH. Installations of sshd ignores the user's environment setup scripts for login shells (e.g. .bash_profile) and your privately installed git may not be found on the system default $PATH. Another workaround suggested is to set up your $PATH in ".bashrc", but this flag is for people who do not want to pay the overhead for non-interactive shells by having a lean .bashrc file (they set most of the things up in .bash_profile). --exec=<git-upload-pack> Same as --upload-pack=<git-upload-pack>. --depth=<n> Limit fetching to ancestor-chains not longer than n. git-upload-pack treats the special depth 2147483647 as infinite even if there is an ancestor-chain that long. --no-progress Do not show the progress. --check-self-contained-and-connected Output "connectivity-ok" if the received pack is self-contained and connected. -v Run verbosely. <repository> The URL to the remote repository. <refs>... The remote heads to update from. This is relative to $GIT_DIR (e.g. "HEAD", "refs/heads/master"). When unspecified, update from all heads the remote side has. SEE ALSO

NAME
git-ls-remote - List references in a remote repository SYNOPSIS
git ls-remote [--heads] [--tags] [-u <exec> | --upload-pack <exec>] [--exit-code] <repository> [<refs>...] DESCRIPTION
Displays references available in a remote repository along with the associated commit IDs. OPTIONS
-h, --heads, -t, --tags Limit to only refs/heads and refs/tags, respectively. These options are not mutually exclusive; when given both, references stored in refs/heads and refs/tags are displayed. -u <exec>, --upload-pack=<exec> Specify the full path of git-upload-pack on the remote host. This allows listing references from repositories accessed via SSH and where the SSH daemon does not use the PATH configured by the user. --exit-code Exit with status "2" when no matching refs are found in the remote repository. Usually the command exits with status "0" to indicate it successfully talked with the remote repository, whether it found any matching refs. <repository> Location of the repository. The shorthand defined in $GIT_DIR/branches/ can be used. Use "." (dot) to list references in the local repository. <refs>... When unspecified, all references, after filtering done with --heads and --tags, are shown. When <refs>... are specified, only references matching the given patterns are displayed. EXAMPLES
$ git ls-remote --tags ./. d6602ec5194c87b0fc87103ca4d67251c76f233a refs/tags/v0.99 f25a265a342aed6041ab0cc484224d9ca54b6f41 refs/tags/v0.99.1 7ceca275d047c90c0c7d5afb13ab97efdf51bd6e refs/tags/v0.99.3 c5db5456ae3b0873fc659c19fafdde22313cc441 refs/tags/v0.99.2 0918385dbd9656cab0d1d81ba7453d49bbc16250 refs/tags/junio-gpg-pub $ git ls-remote http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git master pu rc 5fe978a5381f1fbad26a80e682ddd2a401966740 refs/heads/master c781a84b5204fb294c9ccc79f8b3baceeb32c061 refs/heads/pu b1d096f2926c4e37c9c0b6a7bf2119bedaa277cb refs/heads/rc $ echo http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git >.git/branches/public $ git ls-remote --tags public v* d6602ec5194c87b0fc87103ca4d67251c76f233a refs/tags/v0.99 f25a265a342aed6041ab0cc484224d9ca54b6f41 refs/tags/v0.99.1 c5db5456ae3b0873fc659c19fafdde22313cc441 refs/tags/v0.99.2 7ceca275d047c90c0c7d5afb13ab97efdf51bd6e refs/tags/v0.99.3 GIT
