+NAME
+----
+git-shell - Restricted login shell for GIT over SSH only
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-shell -c <command> <argument>'
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This is meant to be used as a login shell for SSH accounts you want
+to restrict to GIT pull/push access only. It permits execution only
+of server-side GIT commands implementing the pull/push functionality.
+The commands can be executed only by the '-c' option; the shell is not
+interactive.
+
+Currently, only the `git-receive-pack` and `git-upload-pack` commands
+are permitted to be called, with a single required argument.
