       git-ls-remote - List references in a remote repository


       git ls-remote [--heads] [--tags] [--refs] [--upload-pack=<exec>]
                     [-q | --quiet] [--exit-code] [--get-url] [--sort=<key>]
                     [--symref] [<repository> [<refs>...]]


       Displays references available in a remote repository along with the associated commit IDs.


       -h, --heads, -t, --tags
           Limit to only refs/heads and refs/tags, respectively. These options are not mutually
           exclusive; when given both, references stored in refs/heads and refs/tags are
           displayed. Note that git ls-remote -h used without anything else on the command line
           gives help, consistent with other git subcommands.

           Do not show peeled tags or pseudorefs like HEAD in the output.

       -q, --quiet
           Do not print remote URL to stderr.

           Specify the full path of git-upload-pack on the remote host. This allows listing
           references from repositories accessed via SSH and where the SSH daemon does not use
           the PATH configured by the user.

           Exit with status "2" when no matching refs are found in the remote repository. Usually
           the command exits with status "0" to indicate it successfully talked with the remote
           repository, whether it found any matching refs.

           Expand the URL of the given remote repository taking into account any
           "url.<base>.insteadOf" config setting (See git-config(1)) and exit without talking to
           the remote.

           In addition to the object pointed by it, show the underlying ref pointed by it when
           showing a symbolic ref. Currently, upload-pack only shows the symref HEAD, so it will
           be the only one shown by ls-remote.

           Sort based on the key given. Prefix - to sort in descending order of the value.
           Supports "version:refname" or "v:refname" (tag names are treated as versions). The
           "version:refname" sort order can also be affected by the "versionsort.suffix"
           configuration variable. See git-for-each-ref(1) for more sort options, but be aware
           keys like committerdate that require access to the objects themselves will not work
           for refs whose objects have not yet been fetched from the remote, and will give a
           missing object error.

       -o <option>, --server-option=<option>
           Transmit the given string to the server when communicating using protocol version 2.
           The given string must not contain a NUL or LF character. When multiple
           --server-option=<option> are given, they are all sent to the other side in the order
           listed on the command line.

           The "remote" repository to query. This parameter can be either a URL or the name of a
           remote (see the GIT URLS and REMOTES sections of git-fetch(1)).

           When unspecified, all references, after filtering done with --heads and --tags, are
           shown. When <refs>... are specified, only references matching the given patterns are
