+git-peek-remote - Lists the references on a remote repository.
+'git-peek-remote' [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory>
+Lists the references the remote repository has, and optionally
+stores them in the local repository under the same name.
+	Use this to specify the path to 'git-upload-pack' on the
+	remote side, if is not found on your $PATH.
+	Installations of sshd ignores the user's environment
+	setup scripts for login shells (e.g. .bash_profile) and
+	your privately installed GIT may not be found on the system
+	default $PATH.  Another workaround suggested is to set
+	up your $PATH in ".bashrc", but this flag is for people
+	who do not want to pay the overhead for non-interactive
+	shells by having a lean .bashrc file (they set most of
+	the things up in .bash_profile).
+	A remote host that houses the repository.  When this
+	part is specified, 'git-upload-pack' is invoked via
+	ssh.
+	The repository to sync from.
