NAME
       git-http-fetch - Download from a remote Git repository via HTTP

SYNOPSIS
       git http-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w filename] [--recover] [--stdin] <commit> <url>


DESCRIPTION
       Downloads a remote Git repository via HTTP.

       NOTE: use of this command without -a is deprecated. The -a behaviour
       will become the default in a future release.

OPTIONS
       commit-id
	   Either the hash or the filename under [URL]/refs/ to pull.

       -c
	   Get the commit objects.

       -t
	   Get trees associated with the commit objects.

       -a
	   Get all the objects.

       -v
	   Report what is downloaded.

       -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 http-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.
