--pid-file=file::
Save the process id in 'file'.
+--user=user, --group=group::
+ Change daemon's uid and gid before entering the service loop.
+ When only `--user` is given without `--group`, the
+ primary group ID for the user is used. The values of
+ the option are given to `getpwnam(3)` and `getgrnam(3)`
+ and numeric IDs are not supported.
++
+Giving these options is an error when used with `--inetd`; use
+the facility of inet daemon to achieve the same before spawning
+`git-daemon` if needed.

<directory>::
A directory to add to the whitelist of allowed directories. Unless
--strict-paths is specified this will also include subdirectories
