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

SYNOPSIS
       git http-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w filename] [--recover] [--stdin | --packfile=<hash> | <commit>] <url>


DESCRIPTION
       Downloads a remote Git repository via HTTP.

       This command always gets all objects. Historically, there were three
       options -a, -c and -t for choosing which objects to download. They are
       now silently ignored.

OPTIONS
       commit-id
           Either the hash or the filename under [URL]/refs/ to pull.

       -a, -c, -t
           These options are ignored for historical reasons.

       -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>]

       --packfile=<hash>
           Instead of a commit id on the command line (which is not expected
           in this case), git http-fetch fetches the packfile directly at the
           given URL and uses index-pack to generate corresponding .idx and
           .keep files. The hash is used to determine the name of the
           temporary file and is arbitrary. The output of index-pack is
           printed to stdout.

       --recover
           Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after
           an earlier fetch is interrupted.
