+'git-update-server-info' [--force]
+A dumb server that does not do on-the-fly pack generations can
+have some auxiliary information files in $GIT_DIR/info and
+$GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY/info directories to help clients discover

+pull decisions.  This command generates such auxiliary files.
+	Update the info files even when they do not appear
