git-update-server-info(1)
=========================
NAME
----
git-update-server-info - Update auxiliary info file to help dumb servers
SYNOPSIS
--------
'git-update-server-info' [--force]
DESCRIPTION
-----------
A dumb server that does not do on-the-fly pack generations must
have some auxiliary information files in $GIT_DIR/info and
$GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY/info directories to help clients discover
what references and packs the server has. This command
generates such auxiliary files.
OPTIONS
-------
-f|--force::
Update the info files from scratch.
OUTPUT
------
Currently the command updates the following files. Please see
link:repository-layout.html[repository-layout] for description
of what they are for:
* objects/info/packs
* info/refs
BUGS
----
When you remove an existing ref, the command fails to update
info/refs file unless `--force` flag is given.
