+'git-peek-remote' [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory>
+Lists the references the remote repository has, and optionally
+stores them in the local repository under the same name.
+ Use this to specify the path to 'git-upload-pack' on the
+ remote side, if is not found on your $PATH.
+ Installations of sshd ignores the user's environment
+ setup scripts for login shells (e.g. .bash_profile) and
+ your privately installed GIT may not be found on the system
+ default $PATH. Another workaround suggested is to set
+ up your $PATH in ".bashrc", but this flag is for people
+ who do not want to pay the overhead for non-interactive
+ shells by having a lean .bashrc file (they set most of
+ the things up in .bash_profile).
+ A remote host that houses the repository. When this
+ part is specified, 'git-upload-pack' is invoked via
+ ssh.
+ The repository to sync from.
