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] <commit> <url>
DESCRIPTION
Downloads a remote git repository via HTTP.
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>['\t'<filename-as-in--w>] --recover Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted.
