+git-receive-pack - Receive what is pushed into it
+'git-receive-pack' <directory>
+Invoked by 'git-send-pack' and updates the repository with the
+information fed from the remote end.
+This command is usually not invoked directly by the end user.
+The UI for the protocol is on the 'git-send-pack' side, and the
+program pair is meant to be used to push updates to remote
+repository. For pull operations, see 'git-fetch-pack' and
+ The repository to sync into.
