NAME

       GROK-PULL - Clone or update local git repositories

SYNOPSIS

          grok-pull -c /path/to/repos.conf

DESCRIPTION

       This  utility  runs  from  a cronjob and downloads the latest manifest from the grokmirror
       master. If there are new repositories or changes in the existing  repositories,  grok-pull
       will  perform  the  necessary  git  commands  to clone or fetch the required data from the
       master.

       At the end of its run, grok-pull will generate its own manifest file, which  can  then  be
       used for further mirroring.

OPTIONS

          --version
                 show program's version number and exit

          -h, --help
                 show this help message and exit

          -v, --verbose
                 Be verbose and tell us what you are doing

          -n, --no-mtime-check
                 Run without checking manifest mtime.

          -f, --force
                 Force  full  git  update  regardless  of  last-modified  times. Also useful when
                 repos.conf has changed.

          -p, --purge
                 Remove any git trees that are no longer in manifest.

          -y, --pretty
                 Pretty-print the generated manifest (sort repos and add  indentation).  This  is
                 much slower, so should be used with caution on large collections.

          -r, --reuse-existing-repos
                 If any existing repositories are found on disk, set new remote origin and reuse

          -c CONFIG, --config=CONFIG
                 Location of repos.conf

EXAMPLES

       Locate  repos.conf  and modify it to reflect your needs. The default configuration file is
       heavily commented.

       Add a cronjob to run as frequently  as  you  like.  For  example,  add  the  following  to
       /etc/cron.d/grokmirror.cron:

          # Run grok-pull every minute as user "mirror"
          * * * * * mirror /usr/bin/grok-pull -p -c /etc/grokmirror/repos.conf

       Make  sure  the  user  "mirror"  (or whichever user you specified) is able to write to the
       toplevel, log and lock locations specified in repos.conf.
