Documentation/git-clone-pack.txt

 
 SYNOPSIS
 --------
-'git-clone-pack' [-q] [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory> [<heads>...]
+'git-clone-pack' [-q] [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory> [<head>...]
 
 DESCRIPTION
 -----------
 	shells by having a lean .bashrc file (they set most of
 	the things up in .bash_profile).
 
-[<host>:]<directory::
-	The (possibly remote) repository to clone from.
+<host>::
+	A remote host that houses the repository.  When this
+	part is specified, 'git-upload-pack' is invoked via
+	ssh.
 
-<heads>...::
+<directory>::
+	The repository to sync from.
+
+<head>...::
 	The heads to update.  This is relative to $GIT_DIR
 	(e.g. "HEAD", "refs/heads/master").  When unspecified,
 	all heads are updated to match the remote repository.

+git-fetch-pack(1)
+=================
+v0.1, July 2005
+
+NAME
+----
+git-fetch-pack - Receive missing objects from another repository.
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+git-fetch-pack [-q] [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory> [<head>...] < <commit-list>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Invokes 'git-upload-pack' on a potentially remote repository,
+and asks it to send objects missing from this repository, to
+update the named heads.  The list of commits available locally
+is fed from the standard input, to be sent to 'git-upload-pack'
+running on the other end.
+
+This command can be used only when the local side has a common
+(ancestor) commit with the remote head that is being pulled
+from.  Use 'git-clone-pack' for that.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-q::
+	Pass '-q' flag to 'git-unpack-objects'; this makes the
+	cloning process less verbose.
+
+--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.
+
+<head>...::
+	The remote heads to update from. This is relative to
+	$GIT_DIR (e.g. "HEAD", "refs/heads/master").  When
+	unspecified, update from all heads the remote side has.
+
+	However the program refuses to work if more than one
+	remote head matches the specified heads.  I am not sure
+	what this means... Help!!!!!

+git-upload-pack(1)
+==================
+v0.1, July 2005
+
+NAME
+----
+git-upload-pack - Send missing objects packed.
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-upload-pack' <directory>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Invoked by 'git-clone-pack' and/or 'git-fetch-pack', learns what
+objects the other side is missing, and sends them after packing.
+
+This command is usually not invoked directly by the end user.
+The UI for the protocol is on the 'git-fetch-pack' side, and the
+program pair is meant to be used to pull updates from a remote
+repository.  For push operations, see 'git-send-pack'.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<directory>::
+	The repository to sync from.
