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

DESCRIPTION Downloads a remote git repository via HTTP.

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

-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.
