git-http-fetch - Download from a remote Git repository via HTTP
git http-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w filename] [--recover] [--stdin] <commit> <url>
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.
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>] --recover Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted.
