NAME

       git-shell - Restricted login shell for GIT-only SSH access

SYNOPSIS

       $(git --exec-path)/git-shell -c <command> <argument>

DESCRIPTION

       This is meant to be used as a login shell for SSH accounts you want to
       restrict to GIT pull/push access only. It permits execution only of
       server-side GIT commands implementing the pull/push functionality. The
       commands can be executed only by the -c option; the shell is not
       interactive.

       Currently, only four commands are permitted to be called,
       git-receive-pack git-upload-pack and git-upload-archive with a single
       required argument, or cvs server (to invoke git-cvsserver).
