git-upload-archive

Send archive back to git -archive

SYNOPSIS



gitupload -archive <directory>

DESCRIPTION


Invoked by gitarchive --remote and sends a generated archive to the other end over the Git protocol .
This command is usually not invoked directly by the end user . The UI for the protocol is on the gitarchive side, and the program pair is meant to be used to get an archive from a remote repository .

SECURITY


In order to protect the privacy of objects that have been removed from history but may not yet have been pruned, git-upload -archive avoids serving archives for commits and trees that are not reachable from the repository refs . However, because calculating object reachability is computationally expensive, git-upload -archive implements a stricter but easier -to -check set of rules:
'-04' 1. '+01' .sp -1

" 1." 4.2 Clients may request a commit or tree that is pointed to directly by a ref . E .g ., gitarchive --remote=origin v1 .0 .
'-04' 2. '+01' .sp -1

" 2." 4.2 Clients may request a sub -tree within a commit or tree using the ref:path syntax . E .g ., gitarchive --remote=origin v1 .0:Documentation .
'-04' 3. '+01' .sp -1

" 3." 4.2 Clients may not use other sha1 expressions, even if the end result is reachable . E .g ., neither a relative commit like master^ nor a literal sha1 like abcd1234 is allowed, even if the result is reachable from the refs .
Note that rule 3 disallows many cases that do not have any privacy implications . These rules are subject to change in future versions of git, and the server accessed by gitarchive --remote may or may not follow these exact rules .
If the config option uploadArchive.allowUnreachable is true, these rules are ignored, and clients may use arbitrary sha1 expressions . This is useful if you do not care about the privacy of unreachable objects, or if your object database is already publicly available for access via non -smart -http .
