SYNOPSIS         top

       git update-server-info

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

       Currently the command updates the following files. Please see
       gitrepository-layout(5) for description of what they are for:
