git-stripspace - Remove unnecessary whitespace SYNOPSIS
git stripspace [-s | --strip-comments] < input DESCRIPTION
Clean the input in the manner used by Git for text such as commit messages, notes, tags and branch descriptions. With no arguments, this will: o remove trailing whitespace from all lines o collapse multiple consecutive empty lines into one empty line o remove empty lines from the beginning and end of the input o add a missing to the last line if necessary. In the case where the input consists entirely of whitespace characters, no output will be produced. NOTE: This is intended for cleaning metadata, prefer the --whitespace=fix mode of git-apply(1) for correcting whitespace of patches or files in the repository. OPTIONS
-s, --strip-comments Skip and remove all lines starting with comment character (default #). -c, --comment-lines Prepend comment character and blank to each line. Lines will automatically be terminated with a newline. On empty lines, only the comment character will be prepended. EXAMPLES
Given the following noisy input with $ indicating the end of a line: |A brief introduction $ | $ |$ |A new paragraph$ |# with a commented-out line $ |explaining lots of stuff.$ |$ |# An old paragraph, also commented-out. $ | $ |The end.$ | $ Use git stripspace with no arguments to obtain: |A brief introduction$ |$ |A new paragraph$ |# with a commented-out line$ |explaining lots of stuff.$ |$ |# An old paragraph, also commented-out.$ |$ |The end.$ Use git stripspace --strip-comments to obtain: |A brief introduction$ |$ |A new paragraph$ |explaining lots of stuff.$ |$ |The end.$ GIT

git-http-fetch - Download from a remote Git repository via HTTP SYNOPSIS
git http-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w filename] [--recover] [--stdin] <commit> <url> DESCRIPTION
Downloads a remote Git repository via HTTP. NOTE: use of this command without -a is deprecated. The -a behaviour will become the default in a future release. OPTIONS
commit-id Either the hash or the filename under [URL]/refs/ to pull. -c Get the commit objects. -t Get trees associated with the commit objects. -a Get all the objects. -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>[' '<filename-as-in--w>] --recover Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted. GIT
