.SH "NAME"
git-upload-pack \- Send objects packed back to git\-fetch\-pack
.SH "SYNOPSIS"
.sp
.nf
\fIgit\-upload\-pack\fR [\-\-[no\-]strict] [\-\-timeout=<n>] [\-\-stateless\-rpc]
[\-\-advertise\-refs] <directory>
.fi
.sp
.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.sp
Invoked by \fIgit fetch\-pack\fR, learns what objects the other side is missing, and sends them after packing\&.
.sp
This command is usually not invoked directly by the end user\&. The UI for the protocol is on the \fIgit fetch\-pack\fR side, and the program pair is meant to be used to pull updates from a remote repository\&. For push operations, see \fIgit send\-pack\fR\&.
.SH "OPTIONS"
.PP
\-\-[no\-]strict
.RS 4
Do not try <directory>/\&.git/ if <directory> is no Git directory\&.
.RE
.PP
\-\-timeout=<n>
.RS 4
Interrupt transfer after <n> seconds of inactivity\&.
.RE
.PP
\-\-stateless\-rpc
.RS 4
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\&.
.RE
.PP
\-\-advertise\-refs
.RS 4
Only the initial ref advertisement is output, and the program exits immediately\&. This fits with the HTTP GET request model, where no request content is received but a response must be produced\&.
.RE
.PP
<directory>
.RS 4
The repository to sync from\&.
