SYNOPSIS

git-upload-pack [--strict] [--timeout=<n>] <directory>

DESCRIPTION

Invoked by 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

--strict

Do not try <directory>/.git/ if <directory> is no git directory.

--timeout=<n>

Interrupt transfer after <n> seconds of inactivity.

<directory>
