NAME

git-local-fetch - Duplicate another git repository on a local system  

SYNOPSIS

git-local-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w filename] [--recover] [-l] [-s] [-n]
                  commit-id path
 

DESCRIPTION

THIS COMMAND IS DEPRECATED.

Duplicates another git repository on a local system.  

OPTIONS

-c

Get the commit objects.

-t

Get trees associated with the commit objects.

-a

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 the local end after the transfer is complete.

--stdin

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

<commit-id>['\t'<filename-as-in--w>]

--recover

Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after an earlier fetch is interrupted.
