NAME
----
git-fetch-pack - Receive missing objects from another repository
SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
'git fetch-pack' [--all] [--quiet|-q] [--keep|-k] [--thin] [--include-tag] [--upload-pack=<git-upload-pack>] [--depth=<n>] [--no-progress] [-v] [<host>:]<directory> [<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.
--no-progress::
Do not show the progress.
-v::
Run verbosely.
<host>::
A remote host that houses the repository. When this
part is specified, 'git-upload-pack' is invoked via
ssh.
<directory>::
The repository to sync from.
<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.
