+git-peek-remote(1)
+==================
+v0.1, July 2005
+
+NAME
+----
+git-peek-remote - Lists the references on a remote repository.
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-peek-remote' [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Lists the references the remote repository has, and optionally
+stores them in the local repository under the same name.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--exec=<git-upload-pack>::
+	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).
+
+<host>::
+	A remote host that houses the repository.  When this
+	part is specified, 'git-upload-pack' is invoked via
+	ssh.
+
+<directory>::
+	The repository to sync from.
