 	Get all the objects.
 -v::
 	Report what is downloaded.
+-s::
+	Instead of regular file-to-file copying use symbolic links to the objects
+	in the remote repository.
+-l::
+	Before attempting symlinks (if -s is specified) or file-to-file copying the
+	remote objects, try to hardlink the remote objects into the local
+	repository.
+-n::
+	Never attempt to file-to-file copy remote objects.  Only useful with
+	-s or -l command-line options.
 
 -w <filename>::
         Writes the commit-id into the filename under $GIT_DIR/refs/<filename> on
 
 		<commit-id>['\t'<filename-as-in--w>]
 
+--recover::
+	Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched.  Used after
+	an earlier fetch is interrupted.
