GIT-HTTP-PUSH(1)                 Git Manual                 GIT-HTTP-PUSH(1)

NAME         top

       git-http-push - Push objects over HTTP/DAV to another repository

SYNOPSIS         top

       git http-push [--all] [--dry-run] [--force] [--verbose] <url> <ref> [<ref>...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Sends missing objects to remote repository, and updates the remote
       branch.

       NOTE: This command is temporarily disabled if your libcurl is older
       than 7.16, as the combination has been reported not to work and
       sometimes corrupts repository.

OPTIONS         top

       --all
           Do not assume that the remote repository is complete in its
           current state, and verify all objects in the entire local ref’s
           history exist in the remote repository.

       --force
           Usually, the command refuses to update a remote ref that is not
           an ancestor of the local ref used to overwrite it. This flag
           disables the check. What this means is that the remote repository
           can lose commits; use it with care.

       --dry-run
           Do everything except actually send the updates.

       --verbose
           Report the list of objects being walked locally and the list of
           objects successfully sent to the remote repository.

       -d, -D
           Remove <ref> from remote repository. The specified branch cannot
           be the remote HEAD. If -d is specified the following other
           conditions must also be met:

           ·   Remote HEAD must resolve to an object that exists locally

           ·   Specified branch resolves to an object that exists locally

           ·   Specified branch is an ancestor of the remote HEAD

       <ref>...
           The remote refs to update.

SPECIFYING THE REFS         top

       A <ref> specification can be either a single pattern, or a pair of
       such patterns separated by a colon ":" (this means that a ref name
       cannot have a colon in it). A single pattern <name> is just a
       shorthand for <name>:<name>.

       Each pattern pair consists of the source side (before the colon) and
       the destination side (after the colon). The ref to be pushed is
       determined by finding a match that matches the source side, and where
       it is pushed is determined by using the destination side.

       ·   It is an error if <src> does not match exactly one of the local
           refs.

       ·   If <dst> does not match any remote ref, either

           ·   it has to start with "refs/"; <dst> is used as the
               destination literally in this case.

           ·   <src> == <dst> and the ref that matched the <src> must not
               exist in the set of remote refs; the ref matched <src>
               locally is used as the name of the destination.

       Without ‘--force`, the <src> ref is stored at the remote only if
       <dst> does not exist, or <dst> is a proper subset (i.e. an ancestor)
       of <src>. This check, known as "fast-forward check", is performed in
       order to avoid accidentally overwriting the remote ref and lose other
       peoples’ commits from there.

       With --force, the fast-forward check is disabled for all refs.

       Optionally, a <ref> parameter can be prefixed with a plus + sign to
       disable the fast-forward check only on that ref.
