NAME         top

       git-http-fetch - Download from a remote Git repository via HTTP

SYNOPSIS         top

       git http-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w filename] [--recover] [--stdin] <commit> <url>

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

       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.
