Add git-bundle: move objects and references by archive
Some workflows require use of repositories on machines that cannot be connected, preventing use of git-fetch / git-push to transport objects and references between the repositories. git-bundle provides an alternate transport mechanism, effectively allowing git-fetch and git-pull to operate using sneakernet transport. `git-bundle create` allows the user to create a bundle containing one or more branches or tags, but with specified basis assumed to exist on the target repository. At the receiving end, git-bundle acts like git-fetch-pack, allowing the user to invoke git-fetch or git-pull using the bundle file as the URL. git-fetch and git-ls-remote determine they have a bundle URL by checking that the URL points to a file, but are otherwise unchanged in operation with bundles. The original patch was done by Mark Levedahl <>. It was updated to make git-bundle a builtin, and get rid of the tar format: now, the first line is supposed to say "# v2 git bundle", the next lines either contain a prerequisite ("-" followed by the hash of the needed commit), or a ref (the hash of a commit, followed by the name of the ref), and finally the pack. As a result, the bundle argument can be "-" now. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
