NAMEgit-local-fetch - Duplicate another git repository on a local system
git-local-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w filename] [--recover] [-l] [-s] [-n] commit-id path
DESCRIPTIONTHIS COMMAND IS DEPRECATED.
- Get the commit objects.
- Get trees associated with the commit objects.
- Get all the objects.
- Report what is downloaded.
- Instead of regular file-to-file copying use symbolic links to the objects in the remote repository.
- 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.
- Never attempt to file-to-file copy remote objects. Only useful with -s or -l command-line options.
- Writes the commit-id into the filename under $GIT_DIR/refs/<filename> on the local end after the transfer is complete.
Instead of a commit id on the command line (which is not expected in this case), git-local-fetch expects lines on stdin in the format
- Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted.
