       git-upload-pack - Send objects packed back to git-fetch-pack

       git-upload-pack [--[no-]strict] [--timeout=<n>] [--stateless-rpc]
			 [--advertise-refs] <directory>

       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.

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

	   Interrupt transfer after <n> seconds of inactivity.

	   Perform only a single read-write cycle with stdin and stdout. This
	   fits with the HTTP POST request processing model where a program
	   may read the request, write a response, and must exit.

	   Used by git-http-backend(1) to serve up
	   $GIT_URL/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack requests. See "Smart
	   Clients" in gitprotocol-http(5) and "HTTP Transport" in the
	   gitprotocol-v2(5) documentation. Also understood by git-receive-

	   The repository to sync from.

	   Internal variable used for handshaking the wire protocol. Server
	   admins may need to configure some transports to allow this variable
	   to be passed. See the discussion in git(1).

	   When cloning or fetching from a partial repository (i.e., one
	   itself cloned with --filter), the server-side upload-pack may need
	   to fetch extra objects from its upstream in order to complete the
	   request. By default, upload-pack will refuse to perform such a lazy
	   fetch, because git fetch may run arbitrary commands specified in
	   configuration and hooks of the source repository (and upload-pack
	   tries to be safe to run even in untrusted .git directories).

	   This is implemented by having upload-pack internally set the
	   GIT_NO_LAZY_FETCH variable to 1. If you want to override it
	   (because you are fetching from a partial clone, and you are sure
	   you trust it), you can explicitly set GIT_NO_LAZY_FETCH to 0.
