Sends missing objects to remote repository, and updates the remote
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.
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.
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.
Do everything except actually send the updates.
Report the list of objects being walked locally and the list of
objects successfully sent to the remote repository.
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
The remote refs to update.
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
· 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.
