Retire git-clone-pack
The program is not used by git-clone since git-fetch-pack was extended to allow its caller do what git-clone-pack alone did, and git-clone was updated to use it. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

- Installations of sshd ignore 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.
- The heads to update. This is relative to $GIT_DIR
- (e.g. "HEAD", "refs/heads/master"). When unspecified,
- all heads are updated to match the remote repository.
-Usually all the refs from existing repository are stored
-under the same name in the new repository. Giving explicit
-<head> arguments instead writes the object names and refs to
-the standard output, just like get-fetch-pack does.
