git-upload-pack - Send objects packed back to git-fetch-pack
git-upload-pack [--[no-]strict] [--timeout=<n>] [--stateless-rpc] [--advertise-refs] <directory>
git fetch-pack, learns what objects the other side is missing, and sends them after packing.
This command is usually not invoked directly by the end user. The UI for the protocol is on the
git fetch-pack side, and the program pair is meant to be used to pull updates from a remote repository. For push operations, see
- Do not try /.git/ if is no Git directory.
- Interrupt transfer after seconds of inactivity.
- Perform only a single read-write cycle with stdin and stdout. This fits with the HTTP POST request processing model where a program may read the request, write a response, and must exit.
- Used by git-http-backend to serve up
$GIT_URL/info/refs?service=git-upload-packrequests. See "Smart Clients" in the HTTP transfer protocols documentation and "HTTP Transport" in the Git Wire Protocol, Version 2 documentation. Also understood by git-receive-pack.
- The repository to sync from.
- Internal variable used for handshaking the wire protocol. Server admins may need to configure some transports to allow this variable to be passed. See the discussion in git.
