NAME
----
-git-daemon - Some git command not yet documented.
-
+git-daemon - A really simple server for GIT repositories.
SYNOPSIS
--------
-'git-daemon' [ --option ] <args>...
+'git-daemon' [--inetd | --port=n]
DESCRIPTION
-----------
-Does something not yet documented.
+A really simple TCP git daemon that normally listens on port "DEFAULT_GIT_PORT"
+aka 9418. It waits for a connection, and will just execute "git-upload-pack"
+when it gets one.
+
+It's careful in that there's a magic request-line that gives the command and
+what directory to upload, and it verifies that the directory is ok.
+It verifies that the directory has the magic file "git-daemon-export-ok", and
+it will refuse to export any git directory that hasn't explicitly been marked
+for export this way.
+
+This is ideally suited for read-only updates, ie pulling from git repositories.
OPTIONS
-------

- Some option not yet documented.
-
-<args>...::
- Some argument not yet documented.
