+ Note that the only valid version of the GPL as far as this project

+
+ HOWEVER, in order to allow a migration to GPLv3 if that seems like
+ a good idea, I also ask that people involved with the project make
+ their preferences known. In particular, if you trust me to make that
+ decision, you might note so in your copyright message, ie something

+
+ This file is licensed under the GPL v2, or a later version

+
+ GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+ Version 2, June 1991
+
+ Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
+ 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
+ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
+ of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
+
+ Preamble
+
+ The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
+freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
+License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
+software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
+General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
+Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
+using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
+the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
+your programs, too.
+
+ When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
+price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
+have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
+this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
+if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
+in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
+
+ To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
+anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
+These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
+distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
+
+ For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
+gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
+you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
+source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
+rights.
+
+ We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
+(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
+distribute and/or modify the software.
+
+ Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
+that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
+software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
+want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
+that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
+authors' reputations.
+
+ Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
+patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
+program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
+program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
+patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
+
+ The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
+modification follow.
+
+ GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+ TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
+
+ 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
+a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
+under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
+refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
+means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
+that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
+either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
+language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
+the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
+
+Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
+covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
+running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
+is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
+Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
+Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
+
+ 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
+source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
+conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
+copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
+notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
+and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
+along with the Program.
+
+You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
+you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
+
+ 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
+of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
+distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
+above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
+
+ a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
+ stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
+
+ b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
+ whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
+ part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
+ parties under the terms of this License.
+
+ c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
+ when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
+ interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
+ announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
+ notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
+ a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
+ these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
+ License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
+ does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
+ the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
+
+These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
+identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
+and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
+themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
+sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
+distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
+on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
+this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
+entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
+
+Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
+your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
+exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
+collective works based on the Program.
+
+In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
+with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
+a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
+the scope of this License.
+
+ 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
+under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
+Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
+
+ a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
+ source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
+ 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
+
+ b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
+ years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
+ cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
+ machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
+ distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
+ customarily used for software interchange; or,
+
+ c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
+ to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
+ allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
+ received the program in object code or executable form with such
+ an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
+
+The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
+making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
+code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
+associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
+control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
+special exception, the source code distributed need not include
+anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
+form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
+operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
+itself accompanies the executable.
+
+If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
+access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
+access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
+distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
+compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
+
+ 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
+except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
+otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
+void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
+However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
+this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
+parties remain in full compliance.
+
+ 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
+signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
+distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
+prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
+modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
+Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
+all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
+the Program or works based on it.
+
+ 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
+Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
+original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
+these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
+restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
+You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
+this License.
+
+ 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
+infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
+conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
+otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
+excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
+distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
+License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
+may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
+license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
+all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
+the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
+refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
+
+If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
+any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
+apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
+circumstances.
+
+It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
+patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
+such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
+integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
+implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
+generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
+through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
+system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
+to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
+impose that choice.
+
+This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
+be a consequence of the rest of this License.
+
+ 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
+certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
+original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
+may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
+those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
+countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
+the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
+
+ 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
+of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
+be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
+address new problems or concerns.
+
+Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
+specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
+later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
+either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
+Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
+this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
+Foundation.
+
+ 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
+programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
+to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
+Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
+make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
+of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
+of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
+
+ NO WARRANTY
+
+ 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
+FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
+OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
+PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
+OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
+MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
+TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
+PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
+REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
+
+ 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
+WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
+REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
+INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
+OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
+TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
+YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
+PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
+POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
+
+ END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
+
+ How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
+
+ If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
+possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
+free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
+
+ To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
+to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
+convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
+the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
+
+ <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
+ Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
+
+ This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
+ it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
+ the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
+ (at your option) any later version.
+
+ This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
+ but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
+ MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
+ GNU General Public License for more details.
+
+ You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
+ along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
+ Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
+
+
+Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
+
+If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
+when it starts in an interactive mode:
+
+ Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
+ Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
+ This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
+ under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
+
+The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
+parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
+be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
+mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
+
+You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
+school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
+necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
+
+ Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
+ `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
+
+ <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
+ Ty Coon, President of Vice
+
+This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
+proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
+consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
+library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
+Public License instead of this License.

+I started reading over the SubmittingPatches document for Linux
+kernel, primarily because I wanted to have a document similar to
+it for the core GIT to make sure people understand what they are
+doing when they write "Signed-off-by" line.
+
+But the patch submission requirements are a lot more relaxed
+here on the technical/contents front, because the core GIT is
+thousand times smaller ;-). So here is only the relevant bits.
+
+
+(1) Make separate commits for logically separate changes.
+
+Unless your patch is really trivial, you should not be sending
+out a patch that was generated between your working tree and
+your commit head. Instead, always make a commit with complete
+commit message and generate a series of patches from your
+repository. It is a good discipline.
+
+Describe the technical detail of the change(s).
+
+If your description starts to get too long, that's a sign that you
+probably need to split up your commit to finer grained pieces.
+
+Oh, another thing. I am picky about whitespaces. Make sure your
+changes do not trigger errors with the sample pre-commit hook shipped
+in templates/hooks--pre-commit.
+
+
+(2) Generate your patch using git tools out of your commits.
+
+git based diff tools (git, Cogito, and StGIT included) generate
+unidiff which is the preferred format.
+
+You do not have to be afraid to use -M option to "git diff" or
+"git format-patch", if your patch involves file renames. The
+receiving end can handle them just fine.
+
+Please make sure your patch does not include any extra files
+which do not belong in a patch submission. Make sure to review
+your patch after generating it, to ensure accuracy. Before
+sending out, please make sure it cleanly applies to the "master"
+branch head. If you are preparing a work based on "next" branch,
+that is fine, but please mark it as such.
+
+
+(3) Sending your patches.
+
+People on the git mailing list need to be able to read and
+comment on the changes you are submitting. It is important for
+a developer to be able to "quote" your changes, using standard
+e-mail tools, so that they may comment on specific portions of
+your code. For this reason, all patches should be submited
+"inline". WARNING: Be wary of your MUAs word-wrap
+corrupting your patch. Do not cut-n-paste your patch; you can
+lose tabs that way if you are not careful.
+
+It is a common convention to prefix your subject line with
+[PATCH]. This lets people easily distinguish patches from other
+e-mail discussions.
+
+"git format-patch" command follows the best current practice to
+format the body of an e-mail message. At the beginning of the
+patch should come your commit message, ending with the
+Signed-off-by: lines, and a line that consists of three dashes,
+followed by the diffstat information and the patch itself. If
+you are forwarding a patch from somebody else, optionally, at
+the beginning of the e-mail message just before the commit
+message starts, you can put a "From: " line to name that person.
+
+You often want to add additional explanation about the patch,
+other than the commit message itself. Place such "cover letter"
+material between the three dash lines and the diffstat.
+
+Do not attach the patch as a MIME attachment, compressed or not.
+Do not let your e-mail client send quoted-printable. Many
+popular e-mail applications will not always transmit a MIME
+attachment as plain text, making it impossible to comment on
+your code. A MIME attachment also takes a bit more time to
+process. This does not decrease the likelihood of your
+MIME-attached change being accepted, but it makes it more likely
+that it will be postponed.
+
+Exception: If your mailer is mangling patches then someone may ask
+you to re-send them using MIME, that is OK.
+
+Do not PGP sign your patch, at least for now. Most likely, your
+maintainer or other people on the list would not have your PGP
+key and would not bother obtaining it anyway. Your patch is not
+judged by who you are; a good patch from an unknown origin has a
+far better chance of being accepted than a patch from a known,
+respected origin that is done poorly or does incorrect things.
+
+If you really really really really want to do a PGP signed
+patch, format it as "multipart/signed", not a text/plain message
+that starts with '-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----'. That is
+not a text/plain, it's something else.
+
+Note that your maintainer does not necessarily read everything
+on the git mailing list. If your patch is for discussion first,
+send it "To:" the mailing list, and optionally "cc:" him. If it
+is trivially correct or after the list reached a consensus, send
+it "To:" the maintainer and optionally "cc:" the list.
+
+
+(6) Sign your work
+
+To improve tracking of who did what, we've borrowed the
+"sign-off" procedure from the Linux kernel project on patches
+that are being emailed around. Although core GIT is a lot
+smaller project it is a good discipline to follow it.
+
+The sign-off is a simple line at the end of the explanation for
+the patch, which certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have
+the right to pass it on as a open-source patch. The rules are
+pretty simple: if you can certify the below:
+
+ Developer's Certificate of Origin 1.1
+
+ By making a contribution to this project, I certify that:
+
+ (a) The contribution was created in whole or in part by me and I
+ have the right to submit it under the open source license
+ indicated in the file; or
+
+ (b) The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best
+ of my knowledge, is covered under an appropriate open source
+ license and I have the right under that license to submit that
+ work with modifications, whether created in whole or in part
+ by me, under the same open source license (unless I am
+ permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated
+ in the file; or
+
+ (c) The contribution was provided directly to me by some other
+ person who certified (a), (b) or (c) and I have not modified
+ it.
+
+ (d) I understand and agree that this project and the contribution
+ are public and that a record of the contribution (including all
+ personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is
+ maintained indefinitely and may be redistributed consistent with
+ this project or the open source license(s) involved.
+
+then you just add a line saying
+
+ Signed-off-by: Random J Developer <random@developer.example.org>
+
+Some people also put extra tags at the end. They'll just be ignored for
+now, but you can do this to mark internal company procedures or just
+point out some special detail about the sign-off.
+
+
+------------------------------------------------
+MUA specific hints
+
+Some of patches I receive or pick up from the list share common
+patterns of breakage. Please make sure your MUA is set up
+properly not to corrupt whitespaces. Here are two common ones
+I have seen:
+
+* Empty context lines that do not have _any_ whitespace.
+
+* Non empty context lines that have one extra whitespace at the
+ beginning.
+
+One test you could do yourself if your MUA is set up correctly is:
+
+* Send the patch to yourself, exactly the way you would, except
+ To: and Cc: lines, which would not contain the list and
+ maintainer address.
+
+* Save that patch to a file in UNIX mailbox format. Call it say
+ a.patch.
+
+* Try to apply to the tip of the "master" branch from the
+ git.git public repository:
+
+ $ git fetch http://kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git master:test-apply
+ $ git checkout test-apply
+ $ git reset --hard
+ $ git applymbox a.patch
+
+If it does not apply correctly, there can be various reasons.
+
+* Your patch itself does not apply cleanly. That is _bad_ but
+ does not have much to do with your MUA. Please rebase the
+ patch appropriately.
+
+* Your MUA corrupted your patch; applymbox would complain that
+ the patch does not apply. Look at .dotest/ subdirectory and
+ see what 'patch' file contains and check for the common
+ corruption patterns mentioned above.
+
+* While you are at it, check what are in 'info' and
+ 'final-commit' files as well. If what is in 'final-commit' is
+ not exactly what you would want to see in the commit log
+ message, it is very likely that your maintainer would end up
+ hand editing the log message when he applies your patch.
+ Things like "Hi, this is my first patch.\n", if you really
+ want to put in the patch e-mail, should come after the
+ three-dash line that signals the end of the commit message.

+
+Ah, it looks like a recent version changed the default behavior to do the
+right thing, and inverted the sense of the configuration option. (Either
+that or Gentoo did it.) So you need to set the
+"no-strip-whitespace-before-send" option, unless the option you have is
+"strip-whitespace-before-send", in which case you should avoid checking
+it.

+
+Thunderbird
+-----------
+
+(A Large Angry SCM)
+
+Here are some hints on how to successfully submit patches inline using
+Thunderbird.
+
+This recipe appears to work with the current [*1*] Thunderbird from Suse.
+
+The following Thunderbird extensions are needed:
+ AboutConfig 0.5
+ http://aboutconfig.mozdev.org/
+ External Editor 0.5.4
+ http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/more-info/exteditor
+
+1) Prepare the patch as a text file using your method of choice.
+
+2) Before opening a compose window, use Edit->Account Settings to
+uncheck the "Compose messages in HTML format" setting in the
+"Composition & Addressing" panel of the account to be used to send the
+patch. [*2*]
+
+3) In the main Thunderbird window, _before_ you open the compose window
+for the patch, use Tools->about:config to set the following to the
+indicated values:
+ mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed => false
+ mailnews.wraplength => 0
+
+4) Open a compose window and click the external editor icon.
+
+5) In the external editor window, read in the patch file and exit the
+editor normally.
+
+6) Back in the compose window: Add whatever other text you wish to the
+message, complete the addressing and subject fields, and press send.
+
+7) Optionally, undo the about:config/account settings changes made in
+steps 2 & 3.
+
+
+[Footnotes]
+*1* Version 1.0 (20041207) from the MozillaThunderbird-1.0-5 rpm of Suse
+9.3 professional updates.
+
+*2* It may be possible to do this with about:config and the following
+settings but I haven't tried, yet.
+ mail.html_compose => false
+ mail.identity.default.compose_html => false
+ mail.identity.id?.compose_html => false

+A short git tutorial
+====================
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+This is trying to be a short tutorial on setting up and using a git
+repository, mainly because being hands-on and using explicit examples is
+often the best way of explaining what is going on.
+
+In normal life, most people wouldn't use the "core" git programs
+directly, but rather script around them to make them more palatable.
+Understanding the core git stuff may help some people get those scripts
+done, though, and it may also be instructive in helping people
+understand what it is that the higher-level helper scripts are actually
+doing.
+
+The core git is often called "plumbing", with the prettier user
+interfaces on top of it called "porcelain". You may not want to use the
+plumbing directly very often, but it can be good to know what the
+plumbing does for when the porcelain isn't flushing.
+
+The material presented here often goes deep describing how things
+work internally. If you are mostly interested in using git as a
+SCM, you can skip them during your first pass.
+
+[NOTE]
+And those "too deep" descriptions are often marked as Note.
+
+[NOTE]
+If you are already familiar with another version control system,
+like CVS, you may want to take a look at
+link:everyday.html[Everyday GIT in 20 commands or so] first
+before reading this.
+
+
+Creating a git repository
+-------------------------
+
+Creating a new git repository couldn't be easier: all git repositories start
+out empty, and the only thing you need to do is find yourself a
+subdirectory that you want to use as a working tree - either an empty
+one for a totally new project, or an existing working tree that you want
+to import into git.
+
+For our first example, we're going to start a totally new repository from
+scratch, with no pre-existing files, and we'll call it `git-tutorial`.
+To start up, create a subdirectory for it, change into that
+subdirectory, and initialize the git infrastructure with `git-init-db`:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ mkdir git-tutorial
+$ cd git-tutorial
+$ git-init-db
+------------------------------------------------
+
+to which git will reply
+
+----------------
+defaulting to local storage area
+----------------
+
+which is just git's way of saying that you haven't been doing anything
+strange, and that it will have created a local `.git` directory setup for
+your new project. You will now have a `.git` directory, and you can
+inspect that with `ls`. For your new empty project, it should show you
+three entries, among other things:
+
+ - a file called `HEAD`, that has `ref: refs/heads/master` in it.
+ This is similar to a symbolic link and points at
+ `refs/heads/master` relative to the `HEAD` file.
++
+Don't worry about the fact that the file that the `HEAD` link points to
+doesn't even exist yet -- you haven't created the commit that will
+start your `HEAD` development branch yet.
+
+ - a subdirectory called `objects`, which will contain all the
+ objects of your project. You should never have any real reason to
+ look at the objects directly, but you might want to know that these
+ objects are what contains all the real 'data' in your repository.
+
+ - a subdirectory called `refs`, which contains references to objects.
+
+In particular, the `refs` subdirectory will contain two other
+subdirectories, named `heads` and `tags` respectively. They do
+exactly what their names imply: they contain references to any number
+of different 'heads' of development (aka 'branches'), and to any
+'tags' that you have created to name specific versions in your
+repository.
+
+One note: the special `master` head is the default branch, which is
+why the `.git/HEAD` file was created points to it even if it
+doesn't yet exist. Basically, the `HEAD` link is supposed to always
+point to the branch you are working on right now, and you always
+start out expecting to work on the `master` branch.
+
+However, this is only a convention, and you can name your branches
+anything you want, and don't have to ever even 'have' a `master`
+branch. A number of the git tools will assume that `.git/HEAD` is
+valid, though.
+
+[NOTE]
+An 'object' is identified by its 160-bit SHA1 hash, aka 'object name',
+and a reference to an object is always the 40-byte hex
+representation of that SHA1 name. The files in the `refs`
+subdirectory are expected to contain these hex references
+(usually with a final `\'\n\'` at the end), and you should thus
+expect to see a number of 41-byte files containing these
+references in these `refs` subdirectories when you actually start
+populating your tree.
+
+[NOTE]
+An advanced user may want to take a look at the
+link:repository-layout.html[repository layout] document
+after finishing this tutorial.
+
+You have now created your first git repository. Of course, since it's
+empty, that's not very useful, so let's start populating it with data.
+
+
+Populating a git repository
+---------------------------
+
+We'll keep this simple and stupid, so we'll start off with populating a
+few trivial files just to get a feel for it.
+
+Start off with just creating any random files that you want to maintain
+in your git repository. We'll start off with a few bad examples, just to
+get a feel for how this works:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ echo "Hello World" >hello
+$ echo "Silly example" >example
+------------------------------------------------
+
+you have now created two files in your working tree (aka 'working directory'),
+but to actually check in your hard work, you will have to go through two steps:
+
+ - fill in the 'index' file (aka 'cache') with the information about your
+ working tree state.
+
+ - commit that index file as an object.
+
+The first step is trivial: when you want to tell git about any changes
+to your working tree, you use the `git-update-index` program. That
+program normally just takes a list of filenames you want to update, but
+to avoid trivial mistakes, it refuses to add new entries to the index
+(or remove existing ones) unless you explicitly tell it that you're
+adding a new entry with the `\--add` flag (or removing an entry with the
+`\--remove`) flag.
+
+So to populate the index with the two files you just created, you can do
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git-update-index --add hello example
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and you have now told git to track those two files.
+
+In fact, as you did that, if you now look into your object directory,
+you'll notice that git will have added two new objects to the object
+database. If you did exactly the steps above, you should now be able to do
+
+
+----------------
+$ ls .git/objects/??/*
+----------------
+
+and see two files:
+
+----------------
+.git/objects/55/7db03de997c86a4a028e1ebd3a1ceb225be238
+.git/objects/f2/4c74a2e500f5ee1332c86b94199f52b1d1d962
+----------------
+
+which correspond with the objects with names of `557db...` and
+`f24c7...` respectively.
+
+If you want to, you can use `git-cat-file` to look at those objects, but
+you'll have to use the object name, not the filename of the object:
+
+----------------
+$ git-cat-file -t 557db03de997c86a4a028e1ebd3a1ceb225be238
+----------------
+
+where the `-t` tells `git-cat-file` to tell you what the "type" of the
+object is. git will tell you that you have a "blob" object (ie just a
+regular file), and you can see the contents with
+
+----------------
+$ git-cat-file "blob" 557db03
+----------------
+
+which will print out "Hello World". The object `557db03` is nothing
+more than the contents of your file `hello`.
+
+[NOTE]
+Don't confuse that object with the file `hello` itself. The
+object is literally just those specific *contents* of the file, and
+however much you later change the contents in file `hello`, the object
+we just looked at will never change. Objects are immutable.
+
+[NOTE]
+The second example demonstrates that you can
+abbreviate the object name to only the first several
+hexadecimal digits in most places.
+
+Anyway, as we mentioned previously, you normally never actually take a
+look at the objects themselves, and typing long 40-character hex
+names is not something you'd normally want to do. The above digression
+was just to show that `git-update-index` did something magical, and
+actually saved away the contents of your files into the git object
+database.
+
+Updating the index did something else too: it created a `.git/index`
+file. This is the index that describes your current working tree, and
+something you should be very aware of. Again, you normally never worry
+about the index file itself, but you should be aware of the fact that
+you have not actually really "checked in" your files into git so far,
+you've only *told* git about them.
+
+However, since git knows about them, you can now start using some of the
+most basic git commands to manipulate the files or look at their status.
+
+In particular, let's not even check in the two files into git yet, we'll
+start off by adding another line to `hello` first:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ echo "It's a new day for git" >>hello
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and you can now, since you told git about the previous state of `hello`, ask
+git what has changed in the tree compared to your old index, using the
+`git-diff-files` command:
+
+------------
+$ git-diff-files
+------------
+
+Oops. That wasn't very readable. It just spit out its own internal
+version of a `diff`, but that internal version really just tells you
+that it has noticed that "hello" has been modified, and that the old object
+contents it had have been replaced with something else.
+
+To make it readable, we can tell git-diff-files to output the
+differences as a patch, using the `-p` flag:
+
+------------
+$ git-diff-files -p
+diff --git a/hello b/hello
+index 557db03..263414f 100644

+i.e. the diff of the change we caused by adding another line to `hello`.
+
+In other words, `git-diff-files` always shows us the difference between
+what is recorded in the index, and what is currently in the working
+tree. That's very useful.
+
+A common shorthand for `git-diff-files -p` is to just write `git
+diff`, which will do the same thing.
+
+------------
+$ git diff
+diff --git a/hello b/hello
+index 557db03..263414f 100644
+--- a/hello
++++ b/hello
+@@ -1 +1,2 @@
+ Hello World
++It's a new day for git
+------------
+
+
+Committing git state
+--------------------
+
+Now, we want to go to the next stage in git, which is to take the files
+that git knows about in the index, and commit them as a real tree. We do
+that in two phases: creating a 'tree' object, and committing that 'tree'
+object as a 'commit' object together with an explanation of what the
+tree was all about, along with information of how we came to that state.
+
+Creating a tree object is trivial, and is done with `git-write-tree`.
+There are no options or other input: git-write-tree will take the
+current index state, and write an object that describes that whole
+index. In other words, we're now tying together all the different
+filenames with their contents (and their permissions), and we're
+creating the equivalent of a git "directory" object:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git-write-tree
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and this will just output the name of the resulting tree, in this case
+(if you have done exactly as I've described) it should be
+
+----------------
+8988da15d077d4829fc51d8544c097def6644dbb
+----------------
+
+which is another incomprehensible object name. Again, if you want to,
+you can use `git-cat-file -t 8988d\...` to see that this time the object
+is not a "blob" object, but a "tree" object (you can also use
+`git-cat-file` to actually output the raw object contents, but you'll see
+mainly a binary mess, so that's less interesting).
+
+However -- normally you'd never use `git-write-tree` on its own, because
+normally you always commit a tree into a commit object using the
+`git-commit-tree` command. In fact, it's easier to not actually use
+`git-write-tree` on its own at all, but to just pass its result in as an
+argument to `git-commit-tree`.
+
+`git-commit-tree` normally takes several arguments -- it wants to know
+what the 'parent' of a commit was, but since this is the first commit
+ever in this new repository, and it has no parents, we only need to pass in
+the object name of the tree. However, `git-commit-tree`
+also wants to get a commit message
+on its standard input, and it will write out the resulting object name for the
+commit to its standard output.
+
+And this is where we create the `.git/refs/heads/master` file
+which is pointed at by `HEAD`. This file is supposed to contain
+the reference to the top-of-tree of the master branch, and since
+that's exactly what `git-commit-tree` spits out, we can do this
+all with a sequence of simple shell commands:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ tree=$(git-write-tree)
+$ commit=$(echo 'Initial commit' | git-commit-tree $tree)
+$ git-update-ref HEAD $commit
+------------------------------------------------
+
+which will say:
+
+----------------
+Committing initial tree 8988da15d077d4829fc51d8544c097def6644dbb
+----------------
+
+just to warn you about the fact that it created a totally new commit
+that is not related to anything else. Normally you do this only *once*
+for a project ever, and all later commits will be parented on top of an
+earlier commit, and you'll never see this "Committing initial tree"
+message ever again.
+
+Again, normally you'd never actually do this by hand. There is a
+helpful script called `git commit` that will do all of this for you. So
+you could have just written `git commit`
+instead, and it would have done the above magic scripting for you.
+
+
+Making a change
+---------------
+
+Remember how we did the `git-update-index` on file `hello` and then we
+changed `hello` afterward, and could compare the new state of `hello` with the
+state we saved in the index file?
+
+Further, remember how I said that `git-write-tree` writes the contents
+of the *index* file to the tree, and thus what we just committed was in
+fact the *original* contents of the file `hello`, not the new ones. We did
+that on purpose, to show the difference between the index state, and the
+state in the working tree, and how they don't have to match, even
+when we commit things.
+
+As before, if we do `git-diff-files -p` in our git-tutorial project,
+we'll still see the same difference we saw last time: the index file
+hasn't changed by the act of committing anything. However, now that we
+have committed something, we can also learn to use a new command:
+`git-diff-index`.
+
+Unlike `git-diff-files`, which showed the difference between the index
+file and the working tree, `git-diff-index` shows the differences
+between a committed *tree* and either the index file or the working
+tree. In other words, `git-diff-index` wants a tree to be diffed
+against, and before we did the commit, we couldn't do that, because we
+didn't have anything to diff against.
+
+But now we can do
+
+----------------
+$ git-diff-index -p HEAD
+----------------
+
+(where `-p` has the same meaning as it did in `git-diff-files`), and it
+will show us the same difference, but for a totally different reason.
+Now we're comparing the working tree not against the index file,
+but against the tree we just wrote. It just so happens that those two
+are obviously the same, so we get the same result.
+
+Again, because this is a common operation, you can also just shorthand
+it with
+
+----------------
+$ git diff HEAD
+----------------
+
+which ends up doing the above for you.
+
+In other words, `git-diff-index` normally compares a tree against the
+working tree, but when given the `\--cached` flag, it is told to
+instead compare against just the index cache contents, and ignore the
+current working tree state entirely. Since we just wrote the index
+file to HEAD, doing `git-diff-index \--cached -p HEAD` should thus return
+an empty set of differences, and that's exactly what it does.
+
+[NOTE]
+================
+`git-diff-index` really always uses the index for its
+comparisons, and saying that it compares a tree against the working
+tree is thus not strictly accurate. In particular, the list of
+files to compare (the "meta-data") *always* comes from the index file,
+regardless of whether the `\--cached` flag is used or not. The `\--cached`
+flag really only determines whether the file *contents* to be compared
+come from the working tree or not.
+
+This is not hard to understand, as soon as you realize that git simply
+never knows (or cares) about files that it is not told about
+explicitly. git will never go *looking* for files to compare, it
+expects you to tell it what the files are, and that's what the index
+is there for.
+================
+
+However, our next step is to commit the *change* we did, and again, to
+understand what's going on, keep in mind the difference between "working
+tree contents", "index file" and "committed tree". We have changes
+in the working tree that we want to commit, and we always have to
+work through the index file, so the first thing we need to do is to
+update the index cache:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git-update-index hello
+------------------------------------------------
+
+(note how we didn't need the `\--add` flag this time, since git knew
+about the file already).
+
+Note what happens to the different `git-diff-\*` versions here. After
+we've updated `hello` in the index, `git-diff-files -p` now shows no
+differences, but `git-diff-index -p HEAD` still *does* show that the
+current state is different from the state we committed. In fact, now
+`git-diff-index` shows the same difference whether we use the `--cached`
+flag or not, since now the index is coherent with the working tree.
+
+Now, since we've updated `hello` in the index, we can commit the new
+version. We could do it by writing the tree by hand again, and
+committing the tree (this time we'd have to use the `-p HEAD` flag to
+tell commit that the HEAD was the *parent* of the new commit, and that
+this wasn't an initial commit any more), but you've done that once
+already, so let's just use the helpful script this time:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git commit
+------------------------------------------------
+
+which starts an editor for you to write the commit message and tells you
+a bit about what you have done.
+
+Write whatever message you want, and all the lines that start with '#'
+will be pruned out, and the rest will be used as the commit message for
+the change. If you decide you don't want to commit anything after all at
+this point (you can continue to edit things and update the index), you
+can just leave an empty message. Otherwise `git commit` will commit
+the change for you.
+
+You've now made your first real git commit. And if you're interested in
+looking at what `git commit` really does, feel free to investigate:
+it's a few very simple shell scripts to generate the helpful (?) commit
+message headers, and a few one-liners that actually do the
+commit itself (`git-commit`).
+
+
+Inspecting Changes
+------------------
+
+While creating changes is useful, it's even more useful if you can tell
+later what changed. The most useful command for this is another of the
+`diff` family, namely `git-diff-tree`.
+
+`git-diff-tree` can be given two arbitrary trees, and it will tell you the
+differences between them. Perhaps even more commonly, though, you can
+give it just a single commit object, and it will figure out the parent
+of that commit itself, and show the difference directly. Thus, to get
+the same diff that we've already seen several times, we can now do
+
+----------------
+$ git-diff-tree -p HEAD
+----------------
+
+(again, `-p` means to show the difference as a human-readable patch),
+and it will show what the last commit (in `HEAD`) actually changed.
+
+[NOTE]
+============
+Here is an ASCII art by Jon Loeliger that illustrates how
+various diff-\* commands compare things.

+ +-----------+
+============
+
+More interestingly, you can also give `git-diff-tree` the `--pretty` flag,
+which tells it to also show the commit message and author and date of the
+commit, and you can tell it to show a whole series of diffs.
+Alternatively, you can tell it to be "silent", and not show the diffs at
+all, but just show the actual commit message.
+
+In fact, together with the `git-rev-list` program (which generates a
+list of revisions), `git-diff-tree` ends up being a veritable fount of
+changes. A trivial (but very useful) script called `git-whatchanged` is
+included with git which does exactly this, and shows a log of recent
+activities.
+
+To see the whole history of our pitiful little git-tutorial project, you
+can do
+
+----------------
+$ git log
+----------------
+
+which shows just the log messages, or if we want to see the log together
+with the associated patches use the more complex (and much more
+powerful)
+
+----------------
+$ git-whatchanged -p --root
+----------------
+
+and you will see exactly what has changed in the repository over its
+short history.
+
+[NOTE]
+The `\--root` flag is a flag to `git-diff-tree` to tell it to
+show the initial aka 'root' commit too. Normally you'd probably not
+want to see the initial import diff, but since the tutorial project
+was started from scratch and is so small, we use it to make the result
+a bit more interesting.
+
+With that, you should now be having some inkling of what git does, and
+can explore on your own.
+
+[NOTE]
+Most likely, you are not directly using the core
+git Plumbing commands, but using Porcelain like Cogito on top
+of it. Cogito works a bit differently and you usually do not
+have to run `git-update-index` yourself for changed files (you
+do tell underlying git about additions and removals via
+`cg-add` and `cg-rm` commands). Just before you make a commit
+with `cg-commit`, Cogito figures out which files you modified,
+and runs `git-update-index` on them for you.
+
+
+Tagging a version
+-----------------
+
+In git, there are two kinds of tags, a "light" one, and an "annotated tag".
+
+A "light" tag is technically nothing more than a branch, except we put
+it in the `.git/refs/tags/` subdirectory instead of calling it a `head`.
+So the simplest form of tag involves nothing more than
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git tag my-first-tag
+------------------------------------------------
+
+which just writes the current `HEAD` into the `.git/refs/tags/my-first-tag`
+file, after which point you can then use this symbolic name for that
+particular state. You can, for example, do
+
+----------------
+$ git diff my-first-tag
+----------------
+
+to diff your current state against that tag (which at this point will
+obviously be an empty diff, but if you continue to develop and commit
+stuff, you can use your tag as an "anchor-point" to see what has changed
+since you tagged it.
+
+An "annotated tag" is actually a real git object, and contains not only a
+pointer to the state you want to tag, but also a small tag name and
+message, along with optionally a PGP signature that says that yes,
+you really did
+that tag. You create these annotated tags with either the `-a` or
+`-s` flag to `git tag`:
+
+----------------
+$ git tag -s <tagname>
+----------------
+
+which will sign the current `HEAD` (but you can also give it another
+argument that specifies the thing to tag, ie you could have tagged the
+current `mybranch` point by using `git tag <tagname> mybranch`).
+
+You normally only do signed tags for major releases or things
+like that, while the light-weight tags are useful for any marking you
+want to do -- any time you decide that you want to remember a certain
+point, just create a private tag for it, and you have a nice symbolic
+name for the state at that point.
+
+
+Copying repositories
+--------------------
+
+git repositories are normally totally self-sufficient and relocatable
+Unlike CVS, for example, there is no separate notion of
+"repository" and "working tree". A git repository normally *is* the
+working tree, with the local git information hidden in the `.git`
+subdirectory. There is nothing else. What you see is what you got.
+
+[NOTE]
+You can tell git to split the git internal information from
+the directory that it tracks, but we'll ignore that for now: it's not
+how normal projects work, and it's really only meant for special uses.
+So the mental model of "the git information is always tied directly to
+the working tree that it describes" may not be technically 100%
+accurate, but it's a good model for all normal use.
+
+This has two implications:
+
+ - if you grow bored with the tutorial repository you created (or you've
+ made a mistake and want to start all over), you can just do simple
++
+----------------
+$ rm -rf git-tutorial
+----------------
++
+and it will be gone. There's no external repository, and there's no
+history outside the project you created.
+
+ - if you want to move or duplicate a git repository, you can do so. There
+ is `git clone` command, but if all you want to do is just to
+ create a copy of your repository (with all the full history that
+ went along with it), you can do so with a regular
+ `cp -a git-tutorial new-git-tutorial`.
++
+Note that when you've moved or copied a git repository, your git index
+file (which caches various information, notably some of the "stat"
+information for the files involved) will likely need to be refreshed.
+So after you do a `cp -a` to create a new copy, you'll want to do
++
+----------------
+$ git-update-index --refresh
+----------------
++
+in the new repository to make sure that the index file is up-to-date.
+
+Note that the second point is true even across machines. You can
+duplicate a remote git repository with *any* regular copy mechanism, be it
+`scp`, `rsync` or `wget`.
+
+When copying a remote repository, you'll want to at a minimum update the
+index cache when you do this, and especially with other peoples'
+repositories you often want to make sure that the index cache is in some
+known state (you don't know *what* they've done and not yet checked in),
+so usually you'll precede the `git-update-index` with a
+
+----------------
+$ git-read-tree --reset HEAD
+$ git-update-index --refresh
+----------------
+
+which will force a total index re-build from the tree pointed to by `HEAD`.
+It resets the index contents to `HEAD`, and then the `git-update-index`
+makes sure to match up all index entries with the checked-out files.
+If the original repository had uncommitted changes in its
+working tree, `git-update-index --refresh` notices them and
+tells you they need to be updated.
+
+The above can also be written as simply
+
+----------------
+$ git reset
+----------------
+
+and in fact a lot of the common git command combinations can be scripted
+with the `git xyz` interfaces. You can learn things by just looking
+at what the various git scripts do. For example, `git reset` is the
+above two lines implemented in `git-reset`, but some things like
+`git status` and `git commit` are slightly more complex scripts around
+the basic git commands.
+
+Many (most?) public remote repositories will not contain any of
+the checked out files or even an index file, and will *only* contain the
+actual core git files. Such a repository usually doesn't even have the
+`.git` subdirectory, but has all the git files directly in the
+repository.
+
+To create your own local live copy of such a "raw" git repository, you'd
+first create your own subdirectory for the project, and then copy the
+raw repository contents into the `.git` directory. For example, to
+create your own copy of the git repository, you'd do the following
+
+----------------
+$ mkdir my-git
+$ cd my-git
+$ rsync -rL rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git/ .git
+----------------
+
+followed by
+
+----------------
+$ git-read-tree HEAD
+----------------
+
+to populate the index. However, now you have populated the index, and
+you have all the git internal files, but you will notice that you don't
+actually have any of the working tree files to work on. To get
+those, you'd check them out with
+
+----------------
+$ git-checkout-index -u -a
+----------------
+
+where the `-u` flag means that you want the checkout to keep the index
+up-to-date (so that you don't have to refresh it afterward), and the
+`-a` flag means "check out all files" (if you have a stale copy or an
+older version of a checked out tree you may also need to add the `-f`
+flag first, to tell git-checkout-index to *force* overwriting of any old
+files).
+
+Again, this can all be simplified with
+
+----------------
+$ git clone rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git/ my-git
+$ cd my-git
+$ git checkout
+----------------
+
+which will end up doing all of the above for you.
+
+You have now successfully copied somebody else's (mine) remote
+repository, and checked it out.
+
+
+Creating a new branch
+---------------------
+
+Branches in git are really nothing more than pointers into the git
+object database from within the `.git/refs/` subdirectory, and as we
+already discussed, the `HEAD` branch is nothing but a symlink to one of
+these object pointers.
+
+You can at any time create a new branch by just picking an arbitrary
+point in the project history, and just writing the SHA1 name of that
+object into a file under `.git/refs/heads/`. You can use any filename you
+want (and indeed, subdirectories), but the convention is that the
+"normal" branch is called `master`. That's just a convention, though,
+and nothing enforces it.
+
+To show that as an example, let's go back to the git-tutorial repository we
+used earlier, and create a branch in it. You do that by simply just
+saying that you want to check out a new branch:
+
+------------
+$ git checkout -b mybranch
+------------
+
+will create a new branch based at the current `HEAD` position, and switch
+to it.
+
+[NOTE]
+================================================
+If you make the decision to start your new branch at some
+other point in the history than the current `HEAD`, you can do so by
+just telling `git checkout` what the base of the checkout would be.
+In other words, if you have an earlier tag or branch, you'd just do
+
+------------
+$ git checkout -b mybranch earlier-commit
+------------
+
+and it would create the new branch `mybranch` at the earlier commit,
+and check out the state at that time.
+================================================
+
+You can always just jump back to your original `master` branch by doing
+
+------------
+$ git checkout master
+------------
+
+(or any other branch-name, for that matter) and if you forget which
+branch you happen to be on, a simple
+
+------------
+$ cat .git/HEAD
+------------
+
+will tell you where it's pointing. To get the list of branches
+you have, you can say
+
+------------
+$ git branch
+------------
+
+which is nothing more than a simple script around `ls .git/refs/heads`.
+There will be asterisk in front of the branch you are currently on.
+
+Sometimes you may wish to create a new branch _without_ actually
+checking it out and switching to it. If so, just use the command
+
+------------
+$ git branch <branchname> [startingpoint]
+------------
+
+which will simply _create_ the branch, but will not do anything further.
+You can then later -- once you decide that you want to actually develop
+on that branch -- switch to that branch with a regular `git checkout`
+with the branchname as the argument.
+
+
+Merging two branches
+--------------------
+
+One of the ideas of having a branch is that you do some (possibly
+experimental) work in it, and eventually merge it back to the main
+branch. So assuming you created the above `mybranch` that started out
+being the same as the original `master` branch, let's make sure we're in
+that branch, and do some work there.
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git checkout mybranch
+$ echo "Work, work, work" >>hello
+$ git commit -m 'Some work.' -i hello
+------------------------------------------------
+
+Here, we just added another line to `hello`, and we used a shorthand for
+doing both `git-update-index hello` and `git commit` by just giving the
+filename directly to `git commit`, with an `-i` flag (it tells
+git to 'include' that file in addition to what you have done to
+the index file so far when making the commit). The `-m` flag is to give the
+commit log message from the command line.
+
+Now, to make it a bit more interesting, let's assume that somebody else
+does some work in the original branch, and simulate that by going back
+to the master branch, and editing the same file differently there:
+
+------------
+$ git checkout master
+------------
+
+Here, take a moment to look at the contents of `hello`, and notice how they
+don't contain the work we just did in `mybranch` -- because that work
+hasn't happened in the `master` branch at all. Then do
+
+------------
+$ echo "Play, play, play" >>hello
+$ echo "Lots of fun" >>example
+$ git commit -m 'Some fun.' -i hello example
+------------
+
+since the master branch is obviously in a much better mood.
+
+Now, you've got two branches, and you decide that you want to merge the
+work done. Before we do that, let's introduce a cool graphical tool that
+helps you view what's going on:
+
+----------------
+$ gitk --all
+----------------
+
+will show you graphically both of your branches (that's what the `\--all`
+means: normally it will just show you your current `HEAD`) and their
+histories. You can also see exactly how they came to be from a common
+source.
+
+Anyway, let's exit `gitk` (`^Q` or the File menu), and decide that we want
+to merge the work we did on the `mybranch` branch into the `master`
+branch (which is currently our `HEAD` too). To do that, there's a nice
+script called `git merge`, which wants to know which branches you want
+to resolve and what the merge is all about:
+
+------------
+$ git merge "Merge work in mybranch" HEAD mybranch
+------------
+
+where the first argument is going to be used as the commit message if
+the merge can be resolved automatically.
+
+Now, in this case we've intentionally created a situation where the
+merge will need to be fixed up by hand, though, so git will do as much
+of it as it can automatically (which in this case is just merge the `example`
+file, which had no differences in the `mybranch` branch), and say:
+
+----------------
+ Trying really trivial in-index merge...
+ fatal: Merge requires file-level merging
+ Nope.
+ ...
+ Auto-merging hello
+ CONFLICT (content): Merge conflict in hello
+ Automatic merge failed; fix up by hand
+----------------
+
+which is way too verbose, but it basically tells you that it failed the
+really trivial merge ("Simple merge") and did an "Automatic merge"
+instead, but that too failed due to conflicts in `hello`.
+
+Not to worry. It left the (trivial) conflict in `hello` in the same form you
+should already be well used to if you've ever used CVS, so let's just
+open `hello` in our editor (whatever that may be), and fix it up somehow.
+I'd suggest just making it so that `hello` contains all four lines:
+
+------------
+Hello World
+It's a new day for git
+Play, play, play
+Work, work, work
+------------
+
+and once you're happy with your manual merge, just do a
+
+------------
+$ git commit -i hello
+------------
+
+which will very loudly warn you that you're now committing a merge
+(which is correct, so never mind), and you can write a small merge
+message about your adventures in git-merge-land.
+
+After you're done, start up `gitk \--all` to see graphically what the
+history looks like. Notice that `mybranch` still exists, and you can
+switch to it, and continue to work with it if you want to. The
+`mybranch` branch will not contain the merge, but next time you merge it
+from the `master` branch, git will know how you merged it, so you'll not
+have to do _that_ merge again.
+
+Another useful tool, especially if you do not always work in X-Window
+environment, is `git show-branch`.
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git show-branch --topo-order master mybranch
+* [master] Merge work in mybranch
+ ! [mybranch] Some work.
+--
+- [master] Merge work in mybranch
+*+ [mybranch] Some work.
+------------------------------------------------
+
+The first two lines indicate that it is showing the two branches
+and the first line of the commit log message from their
+top-of-the-tree commits, you are currently on `master` branch
+(notice the asterisk `*` character), and the first column for
+the later output lines is used to show commits contained in the
+`master` branch, and the second column for the `mybranch`
+branch. Three commits are shown along with their log messages.
+All of them have non blank characters in the first column (`*`
+shows an ordinary commit on the current branch, `.` is a merge commit), which
+means they are now part of the `master` branch. Only the "Some
+work" commit has the plus `+` character in the second column,
+because `mybranch` has not been merged to incorporate these
+commits from the master branch. The string inside brackets
+before the commit log message is a short name you can use to
+name the commit. In the above example, 'master' and 'mybranch'
+are branch heads. 'master~1' is the first parent of 'master'
+branch head. Please see 'git-rev-parse' documentation if you
+see more complex cases.
+
+Now, let's pretend you are the one who did all the work in
+`mybranch`, and the fruit of your hard work has finally been merged
+to the `master` branch. Let's go back to `mybranch`, and run
+resolve to get the "upstream changes" back to your branch.
+
+------------
+$ git checkout mybranch
+$ git merge "Merge upstream changes." HEAD master
+------------
+
+This outputs something like this (the actual commit object names
+would be different)
+
+----------------
+Updating from ae3a2da... to a80b4aa....
+Fast forward
+ example | 1 +
+ hello | 1 +
+ 2 files changed, 2 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
+----------------
+
+Because your branch did not contain anything more than what are
+already merged into the `master` branch, the resolve operation did
+not actually do a merge. Instead, it just updated the top of
+the tree of your branch to that of the `master` branch. This is
+often called 'fast forward' merge.
+
+You can run `gitk \--all` again to see how the commit ancestry
+looks like, or run `show-branch`, which tells you this.
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git show-branch master mybranch
+! [master] Merge work in mybranch
+ * [mybranch] Merge work in mybranch
+--
+-- [master] Merge work in mybranch
+------------------------------------------------
+
+
+Merging external work
+---------------------
+
+It's usually much more common that you merge with somebody else than
+merging with your own branches, so it's worth pointing out that git
+makes that very easy too, and in fact, it's not that different from
+doing a `git merge`. In fact, a remote merge ends up being nothing
+more than "fetch the work from a remote repository into a temporary tag"
+followed by a `git merge`.
+
+Fetching from a remote repository is done by, unsurprisingly,
+`git fetch`:
+
+----------------
+$ git fetch <remote-repository>
+----------------
+
+One of the following transports can be used to name the
+repository to download from:
+
+Rsync::
+ `rsync://remote.machine/path/to/repo.git/`
++
+Rsync transport is usable for both uploading and downloading,
+but is completely unaware of what git does, and can produce
+unexpected results when you download from the public repository
+while the repository owner is uploading into it via `rsync`
+transport. Most notably, it could update the files under
+`refs/` which holds the object name of the topmost commits
+before uploading the files in `objects/` -- the downloader would
+obtain head commit object name while that object itself is still
+not available in the repository. For this reason, it is
+considered deprecated.
+
+SSH::
+ `remote.machine:/path/to/repo.git/` or
++
+`ssh://remote.machine/path/to/repo.git/`
++
+This transport can be used for both uploading and downloading,
+and requires you to have a log-in privilege over `ssh` to the
+remote machine. It finds out the set of objects the other side
+lacks by exchanging the head commits both ends have and
+transfers (close to) minimum set of objects. It is by far the
+most efficient way to exchange git objects between repositories.
+
+Local directory::
+ `/path/to/repo.git/`
++
+This transport is the same as SSH transport but uses `sh` to run
+both ends on the local machine instead of running other end on
+the remote machine via `ssh`.
+
+git Native::
+ `git://remote.machine/path/to/repo.git/`
++
+This transport was designed for anonymous downloading. Like SSH
+transport, it finds out the set of objects the downstream side
+lacks and transfers (close to) minimum set of objects.
+
+HTTP(S)::
+ `http://remote.machine/path/to/repo.git/`
++
+Downloader from http and https URL
+first obtains the topmost commit object name from the remote site
+by looking at the specified refname under `repo.git/refs/` directory,
+and then tries to obtain the
+commit object by downloading from `repo.git/objects/xx/xxx\...`
+using the object name of that commit object. Then it reads the
+commit object to find out its parent commits and the associate
+tree object; it repeats this process until it gets all the
+necessary objects. Because of this behaviour, they are
+sometimes also called 'commit walkers'.
++
+The 'commit walkers' are sometimes also called 'dumb
+transports', because they do not require any git aware smart
+server like git Native transport does. Any stock HTTP server
+that does not even support directory index would suffice. But
+you must prepare your repository with `git-update-server-info`
+to help dumb transport downloaders.
++
+There are (confusingly enough) `git-ssh-fetch` and `git-ssh-upload`
+programs, which are 'commit walkers'; they outlived their
+usefulness when git Native and SSH transports were introduced,
+and not used by `git pull` or `git push` scripts.
+
+Once you fetch from the remote repository, you `resolve` that
+with your current branch.
+
+However -- it's such a common thing to `fetch` and then
+immediately `resolve`, that it's called `git pull`, and you can
+simply do
+
+----------------
+$ git pull <remote-repository>
+----------------
+
+and optionally give a branch-name for the remote end as a second
+argument.
+
+[NOTE]
+You could do without using any branches at all, by
+keeping as many local repositories as you would like to have
+branches, and merging between them with `git pull`, just like
+you merge between branches. The advantage of this approach is
+that it lets you keep set of files for each `branch` checked
+out and you may find it easier to switch back and forth if you
+juggle multiple lines of development simultaneously. Of
+course, you will pay the price of more disk usage to hold
+multiple working trees, but disk space is cheap these days.
+
+[NOTE]
+You could even pull from your own repository by
+giving '.' as <remote-repository> parameter to `git pull`. This
+is useful when you want to merge a local branch (or more, if you
+are making an Octopus) into the current branch.
+
+It is likely that you will be pulling from the same remote
+repository from time to time. As a short hand, you can store
+the remote repository URL in a file under .git/remotes/
+directory, like this:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ mkdir -p .git/remotes/
+$ cat >.git/remotes/linus <<\EOF
+URL: http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git/
+EOF
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and use the filename to `git pull` instead of the full URL.
+The URL specified in such file can even be a prefix
+of a full URL, like this:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ cat >.git/remotes/jgarzik <<\EOF
+URL: http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/git/jgarzik/
+EOF
+------------------------------------------------
+
+
+Examples.
+
+. `git pull linus`
+. `git pull linus tag v0.99.1`
+. `git pull jgarzik/netdev-2.6.git/ e100`
+
+the above are equivalent to:
+
+. `git pull http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git/ HEAD`
+. `git pull http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git/ tag v0.99.1`
+. `git pull http://www.kernel.org/pub/.../jgarzik/netdev-2.6.git e100`
+
+
+How does the merge work?
+------------------------
+
+We said this tutorial shows what plumbing does to help you cope
+with the porcelain that isn't flushing, but we so far did not
+talk about how the merge really works. If you are following
+this tutorial the first time, I'd suggest to skip to "Publishing
+your work" section and come back here later.
+
+OK, still with me? To give us an example to look at, let's go
+back to the earlier repository with "hello" and "example" file,
+and bring ourselves back to the pre-merge state:
+
+------------
+$ git show-branch --more=3 master mybranch
+! [master] Merge work in mybranch
+ * [mybranch] Merge work in mybranch
+--
+-- [master] Merge work in mybranch
++* [master^2] Some work.
++* [master^] Some fun.
+------------
+
+Remember, before running `git merge`, our `master` head was at
+"Some fun." commit, while our `mybranch` head was at "Some
+work." commit.
+
+------------
+$ git checkout mybranch
+$ git reset --hard master^2
+$ git checkout master
+$ git reset --hard master^
+------------
+
+After rewinding, the commit structure should look like this:
+
+------------
+$ git show-branch
+* [master] Some fun.
+ ! [mybranch] Some work.
+--
+ + [mybranch] Some work.
+* [master] Some fun.
+*+ [mybranch^] New day.
+------------
+
+Now we are ready to experiment with the merge by hand.
+
+`git merge` command, when merging two branches, uses 3-way merge
+algorithm. First, it finds the common ancestor between them.
+The command it uses is `git-merge-base`:
+
+------------
+$ mb=$(git-merge-base HEAD mybranch)
+------------
+
+The command writes the commit object name of the common ancestor
+to the standard output, so we captured its output to a variable,
+because we will be using it in the next step. BTW, the common
+ancestor commit is the "New day." commit in this case. You can
+tell it by:
+
+------------
+$ git-name-rev $mb
+my-first-tag
+------------
+
+After finding out a common ancestor commit, the second step is
+this:
+
+------------
+$ git-read-tree -m -u $mb HEAD mybranch
+------------
+
+This is the same `git-read-tree` command we have already seen,
+but it takes three trees, unlike previous examples. This reads
+the contents of each tree into different 'stage' in the index
+file (the first tree goes to stage 1, the second stage 2,
+etc.). After reading three trees into three stages, the paths
+that are the same in all three stages are 'collapsed' into stage
+0. Also paths that are the same in two of three stages are
+collapsed into stage 0, taking the SHA1 from either stage 2 or
+stage 3, whichever is different from stage 1 (i.e. only one side
+changed from the common ancestor).
+
+After 'collapsing' operation, paths that are different in three
+trees are left in non-zero stages. At this point, you can
+inspect the index file with this command:
+
+------------
+$ git-ls-files --stage
+100644 7f8b141b65fdcee47321e399a2598a235a032422 0 example
+100644 263414f423d0e4d70dae8fe53fa34614ff3e2860 1 hello
+100644 06fa6a24256dc7e560efa5687fa84b51f0263c3a 2 hello
+100644 cc44c73eb783565da5831b4d820c962954019b69 3 hello
+------------
+
+In our example of only two files, we did not have unchanged
+files so only 'example' resulted in collapsing, but in real-life
+large projects, only small number of files change in one commit,
+and this 'collapsing' tends to trivially merge most of the paths
+fairly quickly, leaving only a handful the real changes in non-zero
+stages.
+
+To look at only non-zero stages, use `\--unmerged` flag:
+
+------------
+$ git-ls-files --unmerged
+100644 263414f423d0e4d70dae8fe53fa34614ff3e2860 1 hello
+100644 06fa6a24256dc7e560efa5687fa84b51f0263c3a 2 hello
+100644 cc44c73eb783565da5831b4d820c962954019b69 3 hello
+------------
+
+The next step of merging is to merge these three versions of the
+file, using 3-way merge. This is done by giving
+`git-merge-one-file` command as one of the arguments to
+`git-merge-index` command:
+
+------------
+$ git-merge-index git-merge-one-file hello
+Auto-merging hello.
+merge: warning: conflicts during merge
+ERROR: Merge conflict in hello.
+fatal: merge program failed
+------------
+
+`git-merge-one-file` script is called with parameters to
+describe those three versions, and is responsible to leave the
+merge results in the working tree.
+It is a fairly straightforward shell script, and
+eventually calls `merge` program from RCS suite to perform a
+file-level 3-way merge. In this case, `merge` detects
+conflicts, and the merge result with conflict marks is left in
+the working tree.. This can be seen if you run `ls-files
+--stage` again at this point:
+
+------------
+$ git-ls-files --stage
+100644 7f8b141b65fdcee47321e399a2598a235a032422 0 example
+100644 263414f423d0e4d70dae8fe53fa34614ff3e2860 1 hello
+100644 06fa6a24256dc7e560efa5687fa84b51f0263c3a 2 hello
+100644 cc44c73eb783565da5831b4d820c962954019b69 3 hello
+------------
+
+This is the state of the index file and the working file after
+`git merge` returns control back to you, leaving the conflicting
+merge for you to resolve. Notice that the path `hello` is still
+unmerged, and what you see with `git diff` at this point is
+differences since stage 2 (i.e. your version).
+
+
+Publishing your work
+--------------------
+
+So we can use somebody else's work from a remote repository; but
+how can *you* prepare a repository to let other people pull from
+it?
+
+Your do your real work in your working tree that has your
+primary repository hanging under it as its `.git` subdirectory.
+You *could* make that repository accessible remotely and ask
+people to pull from it, but in practice that is not the way
+things are usually done. A recommended way is to have a public
+repository, make it reachable by other people, and when the
+changes you made in your primary working tree are in good shape,
+update the public repository from it. This is often called
+'pushing'.
+
+[NOTE]
+This public repository could further be mirrored, and that is
+how git repositories at `kernel.org` are managed.
+
+Publishing the changes from your local (private) repository to
+your remote (public) repository requires a write privilege on
+the remote machine. You need to have an SSH account there to
+run a single command, `git-receive-pack`.
+
+First, you need to create an empty repository on the remote
+machine that will house your public repository. This empty
+repository will be populated and be kept up-to-date by pushing
+into it later. Obviously, this repository creation needs to be
+done only once.
+
+[NOTE]
+`git push` uses a pair of programs,
+`git-send-pack` on your local machine, and `git-receive-pack`
+on the remote machine. The communication between the two over
+the network internally uses an SSH connection.
+
+Your private repository's git directory is usually `.git`, but
+your public repository is often named after the project name,
+i.e. `<project>.git`. Let's create such a public repository for
+project `my-git`. After logging into the remote machine, create
+an empty directory:
+
+------------
+$ mkdir my-git.git
+------------
+
+Then, make that directory into a git repository by running
+`git init-db`, but this time, since its name is not the usual
+`.git`, we do things slightly differently:
+
+------------
+$ GIT_DIR=my-git.git git-init-db
+------------
+
+Make sure this directory is available for others you want your
+changes to be pulled by via the transport of your choice. Also
+you need to make sure that you have the `git-receive-pack`
+program on the `$PATH`.
+
+[NOTE]
+Many installations of sshd do not invoke your shell as the login
+shell when you directly run programs; what this means is that if
+your login shell is `bash`, only `.bashrc` is read and not
+`.bash_profile`. As a workaround, make sure `.bashrc` sets up
+`$PATH` so that you can run `git-receive-pack` program.
+
+[NOTE]
+If you plan to publish this repository to be accessed over http,
+you should do `chmod +x my-git.git/hooks/post-update` at this
+point. This makes sure that every time you push into this
+repository, `git-update-server-info` is run.
+
+Your "public repository" is now ready to accept your changes.
+Come back to the machine you have your private repository. From
+there, run this command:
+
+------------
+$ git push <public-host>:/path/to/my-git.git master
+------------
+
+This synchronizes your public repository to match the named
+branch head (i.e. `master` in this case) and objects reachable
+from them in your current repository.
+
+As a real example, this is how I update my public git
+repository. Kernel.org mirror network takes care of the
+propagation to other publicly visible machines:
+
+------------
+$ git push master.kernel.org:/pub/scm/git/git.git/
+------------
+
+
+Packing your repository
+-----------------------
+
+Earlier, we saw that one file under `.git/objects/??/` directory
+is stored for each git object you create. This representation
+is efficient to create atomically and safely, but
+not so convenient to transport over the network. Since git objects are
+immutable once they are created, there is a way to optimize the
+storage by "packing them together". The command
+
+------------
+$ git repack
+------------
+
+will do it for you. If you followed the tutorial examples, you
+would have accumulated about 17 objects in `.git/objects/??/`
+directories by now. `git repack` tells you how many objects it
+packed, and stores the packed file in `.git/objects/pack`
+directory.
+
+[NOTE]
+You will see two files, `pack-\*.pack` and `pack-\*.idx`,
+in `.git/objects/pack` directory. They are closely related to
+each other, and if you ever copy them by hand to a different
+repository for whatever reason, you should make sure you copy
+them together. The former holds all the data from the objects
+in the pack, and the latter holds the index for random
+access.
+
+If you are paranoid, running `git-verify-pack` command would
+detect if you have a corrupt pack, but do not worry too much.
+Our programs are always perfect ;-).
+
+Once you have packed objects, you do not need to leave the
+unpacked objects that are contained in the pack file anymore.
+
+------------
+$ git prune-packed
+------------
+
+would remove them for you.
+
+You can try running `find .git/objects -type f` before and after
+you run `git prune-packed` if you are curious. Also `git
+count-objects` would tell you how many unpacked objects are in
+your repository and how much space they are consuming.
+
+[NOTE]
+`git pull` is slightly cumbersome for HTTP transport, as a
+packed repository may contain relatively few objects in a
+relatively large pack. If you expect many HTTP pulls from your
+public repository you might want to repack & prune often, or
+never.
+
+If you run `git repack` again at this point, it will say
+"Nothing to pack". Once you continue your development and
+accumulate the changes, running `git repack` again will create a
+new pack, that contains objects created since you packed your
+repository the last time. We recommend that you pack your project
+soon after the initial import (unless you are starting your
+project from scratch), and then run `git repack` every once in a
+while, depending on how active your project is.
+
+When a repository is synchronized via `git push` and `git pull`
+objects packed in the source repository are usually stored
+unpacked in the destination, unless rsync transport is used.
+While this allows you to use different packing strategies on
+both ends, it also means you may need to repack both
+repositories every once in a while.
+
+
+Working with Others
+-------------------
+
+Although git is a truly distributed system, it is often
+convenient to organize your project with an informal hierarchy
+of developers. Linux kernel development is run this way. There
+is a nice illustration (page 17, "Merges to Mainline") in Randy
+Dunlap's presentation (`http://tinyurl.com/a2jdg`).
+
+It should be stressed that this hierarchy is purely *informal*.
+There is nothing fundamental in git that enforces the "chain of
+patch flow" this hierarchy implies. You do not have to pull
+from only one remote repository.
+
+A recommended workflow for a "project lead" goes like this:
+
+1. Prepare your primary repository on your local machine. Your
+ work is done there.
+
+2. Prepare a public repository accessible to others.
++
+If other people are pulling from your repository over dumb
+transport protocols (HTTP), you need to keep this repository
+'dumb transport friendly'. After `git init-db`,
+`$GIT_DIR/hooks/post-update` copied from the standard templates
+would contain a call to `git-update-server-info` but the
+`post-update` hook itself is disabled by default -- enable it
+with `chmod +x post-update`. This makes sure `git-update-server-info`
+keeps the necessary files up-to-date.
+
+3. Push into the public repository from your primary
+ repository.
+
+4. `git repack` the public repository. This establishes a big
+ pack that contains the initial set of objects as the
+ baseline, and possibly `git prune` if the transport
+ used for pulling from your repository supports packed
+ repositories.
+
+5. Keep working in your primary repository. Your changes
+ include modifications of your own, patches you receive via
+ e-mails, and merges resulting from pulling the "public"
+ repositories of your "subsystem maintainers".
++
+You can repack this private repository whenever you feel like.
+
+6. Push your changes to the public repository, and announce it
+ to the public.
+
+7. Every once in a while, "git repack" the public repository.
+ Go back to step 5. and continue working.
+
+
+A recommended work cycle for a "subsystem maintainer" who works
+on that project and has an own "public repository" goes like this:
+
+1. Prepare your work repository, by `git clone` the public
+ repository of the "project lead". The URL used for the
+ initial cloning is stored in `.git/remotes/origin`.
+
+2. Prepare a public repository accessible to others, just like
+ the "project lead" person does.
+
+3. Copy over the packed files from "project lead" public
+ repository to your public repository, unless the "project
+ lead" repository lives on the same machine as yours. In the
+ latter case, you can use `objects/info/alternates` file to
+ point at the repository you are borrowing from.
+
+4. Push into the public repository from your primary
+ repository. Run `git repack`, and possibly `git prune` if the
+ transport used for pulling from your repository supports
+ packed repositories.
+
+5. Keep working in your primary repository. Your changes
+ include modifications of your own, patches you receive via
+ e-mails, and merges resulting from pulling the "public"
+ repositories of your "project lead" and possibly your
+ "sub-subsystem maintainers".
++
+You can repack this private repository whenever you feel
+like.
+
+6. Push your changes to your public repository, and ask your
+ "project lead" and possibly your "sub-subsystem
+ maintainers" to pull from it.
+
+7. Every once in a while, `git repack` the public repository.
+ Go back to step 5. and continue working.
+
+
+A recommended work cycle for an "individual developer" who does
+not have a "public" repository is somewhat different. It goes
+like this:
+
+1. Prepare your work repository, by `git clone` the public
+ repository of the "project lead" (or a "subsystem
+ maintainer", if you work on a subsystem). The URL used for
+ the initial cloning is stored in `.git/remotes/origin`.
+
+2. Do your work in your repository on 'master' branch.
+
+3. Run `git fetch origin` from the public repository of your
+ upstream every once in a while. This does only the first
+ half of `git pull` but does not merge. The head of the
+ public repository is stored in `.git/refs/heads/origin`.
+
+4. Use `git cherry origin` to see which ones of your patches
+ were accepted, and/or use `git rebase origin` to port your
+ unmerged changes forward to the updated upstream.
+
+5. Use `git format-patch origin` to prepare patches for e-mail
+ submission to your upstream and send it out. Go back to
+ step 2. and continue.
+
+
+Working with Others, Shared Repository Style
+--------------------------------------------
+
+If you are coming from CVS background, the style of cooperation
+suggested in the previous section may be new to you. You do not
+have to worry. git supports "shared public repository" style of
+cooperation you are probably more familiar with as well.
+
+See link:cvs-migration.txt[git for CVS users] for the details.
+
+Bundling your work together
+---------------------------
+
+It is likely that you will be working on more than one thing at
+a time. It is easy to manage those more-or-less independent tasks
+using branches with git.
+
+We have already seen how branches work previously,
+with "fun and work" example using two branches. The idea is the
+same if there are more than two branches. Let's say you started
+out from "master" head, and have some new code in the "master"
+branch, and two independent fixes in the "commit-fix" and
+"diff-fix" branches:
+
+------------
+$ git show-branch
+! [commit-fix] Fix commit message normalization.
+ ! [diff-fix] Fix rename detection.
+ * [master] Release candidate #1
+---
+ + [diff-fix] Fix rename detection.
+ + [diff-fix~1] Better common substring algorithm.
++ [commit-fix] Fix commit message normalization.
+ * [master] Release candidate #1
+++* [diff-fix~2] Pretty-print messages.
+------------
+
+Both fixes are tested well, and at this point, you want to merge
+in both of them. You could merge in 'diff-fix' first and then
+'commit-fix' next, like this:
+
+------------
+$ git merge 'Merge fix in diff-fix' master diff-fix
+$ git merge 'Merge fix in commit-fix' master commit-fix
+------------
+
+Which would result in:
+
+------------
+$ git show-branch
+! [commit-fix] Fix commit message normalization.
+ ! [diff-fix] Fix rename detection.
+ * [master] Merge fix in commit-fix
+---
+ - [master] Merge fix in commit-fix

+------------
+
+However, there is no particular reason to merge in one branch
+first and the other next, when what you have are a set of truly
+independent changes (if the order mattered, then they are not
+independent by definition). You could instead merge those two
+branches into the current branch at once. First let's undo what
+we just did and start over. We would want to get the master
+branch before these two merges by resetting it to 'master~2':
+
+------------
+$ git reset --hard master~2
+------------
+
+You can make sure 'git show-branch' matches the state before
+those two 'git merge' you just did. Then, instead of running
+two 'git merge' commands in a row, you would pull these two
+branch heads (this is known as 'making an Octopus'):
+
+------------
+$ git pull . commit-fix diff-fix
+$ git show-branch
+! [commit-fix] Fix commit message normalization.
+ ! [diff-fix] Fix rename detection.
+ * [master] Octopus merge of branches 'diff-fix' and 'commit-fix'
+---
+ - [master] Octopus merge of branches 'diff-fix' and 'commit-fix'
++ * [commit-fix] Fix commit message normalization.
+ +* [diff-fix] Fix rename detection.
+ +* [diff-fix~1] Better common substring algorithm.
+ * [master~1] Release candidate #1
+++* [master~2] Pretty-print messages.
+------------
+
+Note that you should not do Octopus because you can. An octopus
+is a valid thing to do and often makes it easier to view the
+commit history if you are pulling more than two independent
+changes at the same time. However, if you have merge conflicts
+with any of the branches you are merging in and need to hand
+resolve, that is an indication that the development happened in
+those branches were not independent after all, and you should
+merge two at a time, documenting how you resolved the conflicts,
+and the reason why you preferred changes made in one side over
+the other. Otherwise it would make the project history harder
+to follow, not easier.

+git for CVS users
+=================
+
+So you're a CVS user. That's ok, it's a treatable condition. The job of
+this document is to put you on the road to recovery, by helping you
+convert an existing cvs repository to git, and by showing you how to use a
+git repository in a cvs-like fashion.
+
+Some basic familiarity with git is required. This
+link:tutorial.html[tutorial introduction to git] should be sufficient.
+
+First, note some ways that git differs from CVS:
+
+ * Commits are atomic and project-wide, not per-file as in CVS.
+
+ * Offline work is supported: you can make multiple commits locally,
+ then submit them when you're ready.
+
+ * Branching is fast and easy.
+
+ * Every working tree contains a repository with a full copy of the
+ project history, and no repository is inherently more important than
+ any other. However, you can emulate the CVS model by designating a
+ single shared repository which people can synchronize with; see below
+ for details.
+
+Importing a CVS archive
+-----------------------
+
+First, install version 2.1 or higher of cvsps from
+link:http://www.cobite.com/cvsps/[http://www.cobite.com/cvsps/] and make
+sure it is in your path. The magic command line is then
+
+-------------------------------------------
+$ git cvsimport -v -d <cvsroot> -C <destination> <module>
+-------------------------------------------
+
+This puts a git archive of the named CVS module in the directory
+<destination>, which will be created if necessary. The -v option makes
+the conversion script very chatty.
+
+The import checks out from CVS every revision of every file. Reportedly
+cvsimport can average some twenty revisions per second, so for a
+medium-sized project this should not take more than a couple of minutes.
+Larger projects or remote repositories may take longer.
+
+The main trunk is stored in the git branch named `origin`, and additional
+CVS branches are stored in git branches with the same names. The most
+recent version of the main trunk is also left checked out on the `master`
+branch, so you can start adding your own changes right away.
+
+The import is incremental, so if you call it again next month it will
+fetch any CVS updates that have been made in the meantime. For this to
+work, you must not modify the imported branches; instead, create new
+branches for your own changes, and merge in the imported branches as
+necessary.
+
+Development Models
+------------------
+
+CVS users are accustomed to giving a group of developers commit access to
+a common repository. In the next section we'll explain how to do this
+with git. However, the distributed nature of git allows other development
+models, and you may want to first consider whether one of them might be a
+better fit for your project.
+
+For example, you can choose a single person to maintain the project's
+primary public repository. Other developers then clone this repository
+and each work in their own clone. When they have a series of changes that
+they're happy with, they ask the maintainer to pull from the branch
+containing the changes. The maintainer reviews their changes and pulls
+them into the primary repository, which other developers pull from as
+necessary to stay coordinated. The Linux kernel and other projects use
+variants of this model.
+
+With a small group, developers may just pull changes from each other's
+repositories without the need for a central maintainer.
+
+Emulating the CVS Development Model
+-----------------------------------
+
+Start with an ordinary git working directory containing the project, and
+remove the checked-out files, keeping just the bare .git directory:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ mv project/.git /pub/repo.git
+$ rm -r project/
+------------------------------------------------
+
+Next, give every team member read/write access to this repository. One
+easy way to do this is to give all the team members ssh access to the
+machine where the repository is hosted. If you don't want to give them a
+full shell on the machine, there is a restricted shell which only allows
+users to do git pushes and pulls; see gitlink:git-shell[1].
+
+Put all the committers should in the same group, and make the repository
+writable by that group:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ chgrp -R $group repo.git
+$ find repo.git -mindepth 1 -type d |xargs chmod ug+rwx,g+s
+$ GIT_DIR=repo.git git repo-config core.sharedrepository true
+------------------------------------------------
+
+Make sure committers have a umask of at most 027, so that the directories
+they create are writable and searchable by other group members.
+
+Suppose this repository is now set up in /pub/repo.git on the host
+foo.com. Then as an individual commiter you can clone the shared
+repository:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git clone foo.com:/pub/repo.git/ my-project
+$ cd my-project
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and hack away. The equivalent of `cvs update` is
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git pull origin
+------------------------------------------------
+
+which merges in any work that others might have done since the clone
+operation.
+
+[NOTE]
+================================
+The first `git clone` places the following in the
+`my-project/.git/remotes/origin` file, and that's why the previous step
+and the next step both work.
+------------
+URL: foo.com:/pub/project.git/ my-project
+Pull: master:origin
+------------
+================================
+
+You can update the shared repository with your changes using:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git push origin master
+------------------------------------------------
+
+If someone else has updated the repository more recently, `git push`, like
+`cvs commit`, will complain, in which case you must pull any changes
+before attempting the push again.
+
+In the `git push` command above we specify the name of the remote branch
+to update (`master`). If we leave that out, `git push` tries to update
+any branches in the remote repository that have the same name as a branch
+in the local repository. So the last `push` can be done with either of:
+
+------------
+$ git push origin
+$ git push repo.shared.xz:/pub/scm/project.git/
+------------
+
+as long as the shared repository does not have any branches
+other than `master`.
+
+[NOTE]
+============
+Because of this behaviour, if the shared repository and the developer's
+repository both have branches named `origin`, then a push like the above
+attempts to update the `origin` branch in the shared repository from the
+developer's `origin` branch. The results may be unexpected, so it's
+usually best to remove any branch named `origin` from the shared
+repository.
+============
+
+Advanced Shared Repository Management
+-------------------------------------
+
+Git allows you to specify scripts called "hooks" to be run at certain
+points. You can use these, for example, to send all commits to the shared
+repository to a mailing list. See link:hooks.txt[Hooks used by git].
+
+You can enforce finer grained permissions using update hooks. See
+link:howto/update-hook-example.txt[Controlling access to branches using
+update hooks].
+
+CVS annotate
+------------
+
+So, something has gone wrong, and you don't know whom to blame, and
+you're an ex-CVS user and used to do "cvs annotate" to see who caused
+the breakage. You're looking for the "git annotate", and it's just
+claiming not to find such a script. You're annoyed.
+
+Yes, that's right. Core git doesn't do "annotate", although it's
+technically possible, and there are at least two specialized scripts out
+there that can be used to get equivalent information (see the git
+mailing list archives for details).
+
+git has a couple of alternatives, though, that you may find sufficient
+or even superior depending on your use. One is called "git-whatchanged"
+(for obvious reasons) and the other one is called "pickaxe" ("a tool for
+the software archaeologist").
+
+The "git-whatchanged" script is a truly trivial script that can give you
+a good overview of what has changed in a file or a directory (or an
+arbitrary list of files or directories). The "pickaxe" support is an
+additional layer that can be used to further specify exactly what you're
+looking for, if you already know the specific area that changed.
+
+Let's step back a bit and think about the reason why you would
+want to do "cvs annotate a-file.c" to begin with.
+
+You would use "cvs annotate" on a file when you have trouble
+with a function (or even a single "if" statement in a function)
+that happens to be defined in the file, which does not do what
+you want it to do. And you would want to find out why it was
+written that way, because you are about to modify it to suit
+your needs, and at the same time you do not want to break its
+current callers. For that, you are trying to find out why the
+original author did things that way in the original context.
+
+Many times, it may be enough to see the commit log messages of
+commits that touch the file in question, possibly along with the
+patches themselves, like this:
+
+ $ git-whatchanged -p a-file.c
+
+This will show log messages and patches for each commit that
+touches a-file.
+
+This, however, may not be very useful when this file has many
+modifications that are not related to the piece of code you are
+interested in. You would see many log messages and patches that
+do not have anything to do with the piece of code you are
+interested in. As an example, assuming that you have this piece
+of code that you are interested in in the HEAD version:
+
+ if (frotz) {
+ nitfol();
+ }
+
+you would use git-rev-list and git-diff-tree like this:
+
+ $ git-rev-list HEAD |
+ git-diff-tree --stdin -v -p -S'if (frotz) {
+ nitfol();
+ }'
+
+We have already talked about the "\--stdin" form of git-diff-tree
+command that reads the list of commits and compares each commit
+with its parents (otherwise you should go back and read the tutorial).
+The git-whatchanged command internally runs
+the equivalent of the above command, and can be used like this:
+
+ $ git-whatchanged -p -S'if (frotz) {
+ nitfol();
+ }'
+
+When the -S option is used, git-diff-tree command outputs
+differences between two commits only if one tree has the
+specified string in a file and the corresponding file in the
+other tree does not. The above example looks for a commit that
+has the "if" statement in it in a file, but its parent commit
+does not have it in the same shape in the corresponding file (or
+the other way around, where the parent has it and the commit
+does not), and the differences between them are shown, along
+with the commit message (thanks to the -v flag). It does not
+show anything for commits that do not touch this "if" statement.
+
+Also, in the original context, the same statement might have
+appeared at first in a different file and later the file was
+renamed to "a-file.c". CVS annotate would not help you to go
+back across such a rename, but git would still help you in such
+a situation. For that, you can give the -C flag to
+git-diff-tree, like this:
+
+ $ git-whatchanged -p -C -S'if (frotz) {
+ nitfol();
+ }'
+
+When the -C flag is used, file renames and copies are followed.
+So if the "if" statement in question happens to be in "a-file.c"
+in the current HEAD commit, even if the file was originally
+called "o-file.c" and then renamed in an earlier commit, or if
+the file was created by copying an existing "o-file.c" in an
+earlier commit, you will not lose track. If the "if" statement
+did not change across such a rename or copy, then the commit that
+does rename or copy would not show in the output, and if the
+"if" statement was modified while the file was still called
+"o-file.c", it would find the commit that changed the statement
+when it was in "o-file.c".
+
+NOTE: The current version of "git-diff-tree -C" is not eager
+ enough to find copies, and it will miss the fact that a-file.c
+ was created by copying o-file.c unless o-file.c was somehow
+ changed in the same commit.
+
+You can use the --pickaxe-all flag in addition to the -S flag.
+This causes the differences from all the files contained in
+those two commits, not just the differences between the files
+that contain this changed "if" statement:
+
+ $ git-whatchanged -p -C -S'if (frotz) {
+ nitfol();
+ }' --pickaxe-all
+
+NOTE: This option is called "--pickaxe-all" because -S
+ option is internally called "pickaxe", a tool for software
+ archaeologists.

+
+When `-z` option is not used, TAB, LF, and backslash characters
+in pathnames are represented as `\t`, `\n`, and `\\`,
+respectively.
+
+
+Generating patches with -p
+--------------------------
+
+When "git-diff-index", "git-diff-tree", or "git-diff-files" are run
+with a '-p' option, they do not produce the output described above;
+instead they produce a patch file.
+
+The patch generation can be customized at two levels.
+
+1. When the environment variable 'GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF' is not set,
+ these commands internally invoke "diff" like this:
+
+ diff -L a/<path> -L b/<path> -pu <old> <new>
++
+For added files, `/dev/null` is used for <old>. For removed
+files, `/dev/null` is used for <new>
++
+The "diff" formatting options can be customized via the
+environment variable 'GIT_DIFF_OPTS'. For example, if you
+prefer context diff:
+
+ GIT_DIFF_OPTS=-c git-diff-index -p HEAD
+
+
+2. When the environment variable 'GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF' is set, the
+ program named by it is called, instead of the diff invocation
+ described above.
++
+For a path that is added, removed, or modified,
+'GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF' is called with 7 parameters:
+
+ path old-file old-hex old-mode new-file new-hex new-mode
++
+where:
+
+ <old|new>-file:: are files GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF can use to read the
+ contents of <old|new>,
+ <old|new>-hex:: are the 40-hexdigit SHA1 hashes,
+ <old|new>-mode:: are the octal representation of the file modes.
+
++
+The file parameters can point at the user's working file
+(e.g. `new-file` in "git-diff-files"), `/dev/null` (e.g. `old-file`
+when a new file is added), or a temporary file (e.g. `old-file` in the
+index). 'GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF' should not worry about unlinking the
+temporary file --- it is removed when 'GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF' exits.
+
+For a path that is unmerged, 'GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF' is called with 1
+parameter, <path>.
+
+
+git specific extension to diff format
+-------------------------------------
+
+What -p option produces is slightly different from the
+traditional diff format.
+
+1. It is preceded with a "git diff" header, that looks like
+ this:
+
+ diff --git a/file1 b/file2
++
+The `a/` and `b/` filenames are the same unless rename/copy is
+involved. Especially, even for a creation or a deletion,
+`/dev/null` is _not_ used in place of `a/` or `b/` filenames.
++
+When rename/copy is involved, `file1` and `file2` show the
+name of the source file of the rename/copy and the name of
+the file that rename/copy produces, respectively.
+
+2. It is followed by one or more extended header lines:
+
+ old mode <mode>
+ new mode <mode>
+ deleted file mode <mode>
+ new file mode <mode>
+ copy from <path>
+ copy to <path>
+ rename from <path>
+ rename to <path>
+ similarity index <number>
+ dissimilarity index <number>
+ index <hash>..<hash> <mode>
+
+3. TAB, LF, and backslash characters in pathnames are
+ represented as `\t`, `\n`, and `\\`, respectively.
+
+
+combined diff format
+--------------------
+
+git-diff-tree and git-diff-files can take '-c' or '--cc' option
+to produce 'combined diff', which looks like this:
+
+------------
+diff --combined describe.c
+@@@ +98,7 @@@
+ return (a_date > b_date) ? -1 : (a_date == b_date) ? 0 : 1;
+ }
+
+- static void describe(char *arg)
+ -static void describe(struct commit *cmit, int last_one)
+++static void describe(char *arg, int last_one)
+ {
+ + unsigned char sha1[20];
+ + struct commit *cmit;
+------------
+
+Unlike the traditional 'unified' diff format, which shows two
+files A and B with a single column that has `-` (minus --
+appears in A but removed in B), `+` (plus -- missing in A but
+added to B), or ` ` (space -- unchanged) prefix, this format
+compares two or more files file1, file2,... with one file X, and
+shows how X differs from each of fileN. One column for each of
+fileN is prepended to the output line to note how X's line is
+different from it.
+
+A `-` character in the column N means that the line appears in
+fileN but it does not appear in the last file. A `+` character
+in the column N means that the line appears in the last file,
+and fileN does not have that line.
+
+In the above example output, the function signature was changed
+from both files (hence two `-` removals from both file1 and
+file2, plus `++` to mean one line that was added does not appear
+in either file1 nor file2). Also two other lines are the same
+from file1 but do not appear in file2 (hence prefixed with ` +`).
+
+When shown by `git diff-tree -c`, it compares the parents of a
+merge commit with the merge result (i.e. file1..fileN are the
+parents). When shown by `git diff-files -c`, it compares the
+two unresolved merge parents with the working tree file
+(i.e. file1 is stage 2 aka "our version", file2 is stage 3 aka
+"their version").

+Tweaking diff output
+====================
+June 2005
+
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+The diff commands git-diff-index, git-diff-files, git-diff-tree, and
+git-diff-stages can be told to manipulate differences they find in
+unconventional ways before showing diff(1) output. The manipulation
+is collectively called "diffcore transformation". This short note
+describes what they are and how to use them to produce diff outputs
+that are easier to understand than the conventional kind.
+
+
+The chain of operation
+----------------------
+
+The git-diff-* family works by first comparing two sets of
+files:
+
+ - git-diff-index compares contents of a "tree" object and the
+ working directory (when '\--cached' flag is not used) or a
+ "tree" object and the index file (when '\--cached' flag is
+ used);
+
+ - git-diff-files compares contents of the index file and the
+ working directory;
+
+ - git-diff-tree compares contents of two "tree" objects;
+
+ - git-diff-stages compares contents of blobs at two stages in an
+ unmerged index file.
+
+In all of these cases, the commands themselves compare
+corresponding paths in the two sets of files. The result of
+comparison is passed from these commands to what is internally
+called "diffcore", in a format similar to what is output when
+the -p option is not used. E.g.
+
+------------------------------------------------
+in-place edit :100644 100644 bcd1234... 0123456... M file0
+create :000000 100644 0000000... 1234567... A file4
+delete :100644 000000 1234567... 0000000... D file5
+unmerged :000000 000000 0000000... 0000000... U file6
+------------------------------------------------
+
+The diffcore mechanism is fed a list of such comparison results
+(each of which is called "filepair", although at this point each
+of them talks about a single file), and transforms such a list
+into another list. There are currently 6 such transformations:
+
+- diffcore-pathspec
+- diffcore-break
+- diffcore-rename
+- diffcore-merge-broken
+- diffcore-pickaxe
+- diffcore-order
+
+These are applied in sequence. The set of filepairs git-diff-\*
+commands find are used as the input to diffcore-pathspec, and
+the output from diffcore-pathspec is used as the input to the
+next transformation. The final result is then passed to the
+output routine and generates either diff-raw format (see Output
+format sections of the manual for git-diff-\* commands) or
+diff-patch format.
+
+
+diffcore-pathspec: For Ignoring Files Outside Our Consideration
+---------------------------------------------------------------
+
+The first transformation in the chain is diffcore-pathspec, and
+is controlled by giving the pathname parameters to the
+git-diff-* commands on the command line. The pathspec is used
+to limit the world diff operates in. It removes the filepairs
+outside the specified set of pathnames. E.g. If the input set
+of filepairs included:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+:100644 100644 bcd1234... 0123456... M junkfile
+------------------------------------------------
+
+but the command invocation was "git-diff-files myfile", then the
+junkfile entry would be removed from the list because only "myfile"
+is under consideration.
+
+Implementation note. For performance reasons, git-diff-tree
+uses the pathname parameters on the command line to cull set of
+filepairs it feeds the diffcore mechanism itself, and does not
+use diffcore-pathspec, but the end result is the same.
+
+
+diffcore-break: For Splitting Up "Complete Rewrites"
+----------------------------------------------------
+
+The second transformation in the chain is diffcore-break, and is
+controlled by the -B option to the git-diff-* commands. This is
+used to detect a filepair that represents "complete rewrite" and
+break such filepair into two filepairs that represent delete and
+create. E.g. If the input contained this filepair:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+:100644 100644 bcd1234... 0123456... M file0
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and if it detects that the file "file0" is completely rewritten,
+it changes it to:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+:100644 000000 bcd1234... 0000000... D file0
+:000000 100644 0000000... 0123456... A file0
+------------------------------------------------
+
+For the purpose of breaking a filepair, diffcore-break examines
+the extent of changes between the contents of the files before
+and after modification (i.e. the contents that have "bcd1234..."
+and "0123456..." as their SHA1 content ID, in the above
+example). The amount of deletion of original contents and
+insertion of new material are added together, and if it exceeds
+the "break score", the filepair is broken into two. The break
+score defaults to 50% of the size of the smaller of the original
+and the result (i.e. if the edit shrinks the file, the size of
+the result is used; if the edit lengthens the file, the size of
+the original is used), and can be customized by giving a number
+after "-B" option (e.g. "-B75" to tell it to use 75%).
+
+
+diffcore-rename: For Detection Renames and Copies
+-------------------------------------------------
+
+This transformation is used to detect renames and copies, and is
+controlled by the -M option (to detect renames) and the -C option
+(to detect copies as well) to the git-diff-* commands. If the
+input contained these filepairs:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+:100644 000000 0123456... 0000000... D fileX
+:000000 100644 0000000... 0123456... A file0
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and the contents of the deleted file fileX is similar enough to
+the contents of the created file file0, then rename detection
+merges these filepairs and creates:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+:100644 100644 0123456... 0123456... R100 fileX file0
+------------------------------------------------
+
+When the "-C" option is used, the original contents of modified files,
+and deleted files (and also unmodified files, if the
+"\--find-copies-harder" option is used) are considered as candidates
+of the source files in rename/copy operation. If the input were like
+these filepairs, that talk about a modified file fileY and a newly
+created file file0:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+:100644 100644 0123456... 1234567... M fileY
+:000000 100644 0000000... bcd3456... A file0
+------------------------------------------------
+
+the original contents of fileY and the resulting contents of
+file0 are compared, and if they are similar enough, they are
+changed to:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+:100644 100644 0123456... 1234567... M fileY
+:100644 100644 0123456... bcd3456... C100 fileY file0
+------------------------------------------------
+
+In both rename and copy detection, the same "extent of changes"
+algorithm used in diffcore-break is used to determine if two
+files are "similar enough", and can be customized to use
+a similarity score different from the default of 50% by giving a
+number after the "-M" or "-C" option (e.g. "-M8" to tell it to use
+8/10 = 80%).
+
+Note. When the "-C" option is used with `\--find-copies-harder`
+option, git-diff-\* commands feed unmodified filepairs to
+diffcore mechanism as well as modified ones. This lets the copy
+detector consider unmodified files as copy source candidates at
+the expense of making it slower. Without `\--find-copies-harder`,
+git-diff-\* commands can detect copies only if the file that was
+copied happened to have been modified in the same changeset.
+
+
+diffcore-merge-broken: For Putting "Complete Rewrites" Back Together
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+This transformation is used to merge filepairs broken by
+diffcore-break, and not transformed into rename/copy by
+diffcore-rename, back into a single modification. This always
+runs when diffcore-break is used.
+
+For the purpose of merging broken filepairs back, it uses a
+different "extent of changes" computation from the ones used by
+diffcore-break and diffcore-rename. It counts only the deletion
+from the original, and does not count insertion. If you removed
+only 10 lines from a 100-line document, even if you added 910
+new lines to make a new 1000-line document, you did not do a
+complete rewrite. diffcore-break breaks such a case in order to
+help diffcore-rename to consider such filepairs as candidate of
+rename/copy detection, but if filepairs broken that way were not
+matched with other filepairs to create rename/copy, then this
+transformation merges them back into the original
+"modification".
+
+The "extent of changes" parameter can be tweaked from the
+default 80% (that is, unless more than 80% of the original
+material is deleted, the broken pairs are merged back into a
+single modification) by giving a second number to -B option,
+like these:
+
+* -B50/60 (give 50% "break score" to diffcore-break, use 60%
+ for diffcore-merge-broken).
+
+* -B/60 (the same as above, since diffcore-break defaults to 50%).
+
+Note that earlier implementation left a broken pair as a separate
+creation and deletion patches. This was an unnecessary hack and
+the latest implementation always merges all the broken pairs
+back into modifications, but the resulting patch output is
+formatted differently for easier review in case of such
+a complete rewrite by showing the entire contents of old version
+prefixed with '-', followed by the entire contents of new
+version prefixed with '+'.
+
+
+diffcore-pickaxe: For Detecting Addition/Deletion of Specified String
+---------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+This transformation is used to find filepairs that represent
+changes that touch a specified string, and is controlled by the
+-S option and the `\--pickaxe-all` option to the git-diff-*
+commands.
+
+When diffcore-pickaxe is in use, it checks if there are
+filepairs whose "original" side has the specified string and
+whose "result" side does not. Such a filepair represents "the
+string appeared in this changeset". It also checks for the
+opposite case that loses the specified string.
+
+When `\--pickaxe-all` is not in effect, diffcore-pickaxe leaves
+only such filepairs that touch the specified string in its
+output. When `\--pickaxe-all` is used, diffcore-pickaxe leaves all
+filepairs intact if there is such a filepair, or makes the
+output empty otherwise. The latter behaviour is designed to
+make reviewing of the changes in the context of the whole
+changeset easier.
+
+
+diffcore-order: For Sorting the Output Based on Filenames
+---------------------------------------------------------
+
+This is used to reorder the filepairs according to the user's
+(or project's) taste, and is controlled by the -O option to the
+git-diff-* commands.
+
+This takes a text file each of whose lines is a shell glob
+pattern. Filepairs that match a glob pattern on an earlier line
+in the file are output before ones that match a later line, and
+filepairs that do not match any glob pattern are output last.
+
+As an example, a typical orderfile for the core git probably
+would look like this:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+README
+Makefile
+Documentation
+*.h
+*.c
+t

+Everyday GIT With 20 Commands Or So
+===================================
+
+GIT suite has over 100 commands, and the manual page for each of
+them discusses what the command does and how it is used in
+detail, but until you know what command should be used in order
+to achieve what you want to do, you cannot tell which manual
+page to look at, and if you know that already you do not need
+the manual.
+
+Does that mean you need to know all of them before you can use
+git? Not at all. Depending on the role you play, the set of
+commands you need to know is slightly different, but in any case
+what you need to learn is far smaller than the full set of
+commands to carry out your day-to-day work. This document is to
+serve as a cheat-sheet and a set of pointers for people playing
+various roles.
+
+<<Basic Repository>> commands are needed by people who has a
+repository --- that is everybody, because every working tree of
+git is a repository.
+
+In addition, <<Individual Developer (Standalone)>> commands are
+essential for anybody who makes a commit, even for somebody who
+works alone.
+
+If you work with other people, you will need commands listed in
+<<Individual Developer (Participant)>> section as well.
+
+People who play <<Integrator>> role need to learn some more
+commands in addition to the above.
+
+<<Repository Administration>> commands are for system
+administrators who are responsible to care and feed git
+repositories to support developers.
+
+
+Basic Repository[[Basic Repository]]
+------------------------------------
+
+Everybody uses these commands to feed and care git repositories.
+
+ * gitlink:git-init-db[1] or gitlink:git-clone[1] to create a
+ new repository.
+
+ * gitlink:git-fsck-objects[1] to validate the repository.
+
+ * gitlink:git-prune[1] to garbage collect crufts in the
+ repository.
+
+ * gitlink:git-repack[1] to pack loose objects for efficiency.
+
+Examples
+~~~~~~~~
+
+Check health and remove cruft.::
++
+------------
+$ git fsck-objects <1>
+$ git prune
+$ git count-objects <2>
+$ git repack <3>
+$ git prune <4>
+
+<1> running without "--full" is usually cheap and assures the
+repository health reasonably well.
+<2> check how many loose objects there are and how much
+diskspace is wasted by not repacking.
+<3> without "-a" repacks incrementally. repacking every 4-5MB
+of loose objects accumulation may be a good rule of thumb.
+<4> after repack, prune removes the duplicate loose objects.
+------------
+
+Repack a small project into single pack.::
++
+------------
+$ git repack -a -d <1>
+$ git prune
+
+<1> pack all the objects reachable from the refs into one pack
+and remove unneeded other packs
+------------
+
+
+Individual Developer (Standalone)[[Individual Developer (Standalone)]]
+----------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+A standalone individual developer does not exchange patches with
+other poeple, and works alone in a single repository, using the
+following commands.
+
+ * gitlink:git-show-branch[1] to see where you are.
+
+ * gitlink:git-log[1] to see what happened.
+
+ * gitlink:git-whatchanged[1] to find out where things have
+ come from.
+
+ * gitlink:git-checkout[1] and gitlink:git-branch[1] to switch
+ branches.
+
+ * gitlink:git-add[1] and gitlink:git-update-index[1] to manage
+ the index file.
+
+ * gitlink:git-diff[1] and gitlink:git-status[1] to see what
+ you are in the middle of doing.
+
+ * gitlink:git-commit[1] to advance the current branch.
+
+ * gitlink:git-reset[1] and gitlink:git-checkout[1] (with
+ pathname parameters) to undo changes.
+
+ * gitlink:git-pull[1] with "." as the remote to merge between
+ local branches.
+
+ * gitlink:git-rebase[1] to maintain topic branches.
+
+ * gitlink:git-tag[1] to mark known point.
+
+Examples
+~~~~~~~~
+
+Extract a tarball and create a working tree and a new repository to keep track of it.::
++
+------------
+$ tar zxf frotz.tar.gz
+$ cd frotz
+$ git-init-db
+$ git add . <1>
+$ git commit -m 'import of frotz source tree.'
+$ git tag v2.43 <2>
+
+<1> add everything under the current directory.
+<2> make a lightweight, unannotated tag.
+------------
+
+Create a topic branch and develop.::
++
+------------
+$ git checkout -b alsa-audio <1>
+$ edit/compile/test
+$ git checkout -- curses/ux_audio_oss.c <2>
+$ git add curses/ux_audio_alsa.c <3>
+$ edit/compile/test
+$ git diff <4>
+$ git commit -a -s <5>
+$ edit/compile/test
+$ git reset --soft HEAD^ <6>
+$ edit/compile/test
+$ git diff ORIG_HEAD <7>
+$ git commit -a -c ORIG_HEAD <8>
+$ git checkout master <9>
+$ git pull . alsa-audio <10>
+$ git log --since='3 days ago' <11>
+$ git log v2.43.. curses/ <12>
+
+<1> create a new topic branch.
+<2> revert your botched changes in "curses/ux_audio_oss.c".
+<3> you need to tell git if you added a new file; removal and
+modification will be caught if you do "commit -a" later.
+<4> to see what changes you are committing.
+<5> commit everything as you have tested, with your sign-off.
+<6> take the last commit back, keeping what is in the working tree.
+<7> look at the changes since the premature commit we took back.
+<8> redo the commit undone in the previous step, using the message
+you originally wrote.
+<9> switch to the master branch.
+<10> merge a topic branch into your master branch
+<11> review commit logs; other forms to limit output can be
+combined and include --max-count=10 (show 10 commits), --until='2005-12-10'.
+<12> view only the changes that touch what's in curses/
+directory, since v2.43 tag.
+------------
+
+
+Individual Developer (Participant)[[Individual Developer (Participant)]]
+------------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+A developer working as a participant in a group project needs to
+learn how to communicate with others, and uses these commands in
+addition to the ones needed by a standalone developer.
+
+ * gitlink:git-clone[1] from the upstream to prime your local
+ repository.
+
+ * gitlink:git-pull[1] and gitlink:git-fetch[1] from "origin"
+ to keep up-to-date with the upstream.
+
+ * gitlink:git-push[1] to shared repository, if you adopt CVS
+ style shared repository workflow.
+
+ * gitlink:git-format-patch[1] to prepare e-mail submission, if
+ you adopt Linux kernel-style public forum workflow.
+
+Examples
+~~~~~~~~
+
+Clone the upstream and work on it. Feed changes to upstream.::
++
+------------
+$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/.../torvalds/linux-2.6 my2.6
+$ cd my2.6
+$ edit/compile/test; git commit -a -s <1>
+$ git format-patch origin <2>
+$ git pull <3>
+$ git whatchanged -p ORIG_HEAD.. arch/i386 include/asm-i386 <4>
+$ git pull git://git.kernel.org/pub/.../jgarzik/libata-dev.git ALL <5>
+$ git reset --hard ORIG_HEAD <6>
+$ git prune <7>
+$ git fetch --tags <8>
+
+<1> repeat as needed.
+<2> extract patches from your branch for e-mail submission.
+<3> "pull" fetches from "origin" by default and merges into the
+current branch.
+<4> immediately after pulling, look at the changes done upstream
+since last time we checked, only in the
+area we are interested in.
+<5> fetch from a specific branch from a specific repository and merge.
+<6> revert the pull.
+<7> garbage collect leftover objects from reverted pull.
+<8> from time to time, obtain official tags from the "origin"
+and store them under .git/refs/tags/.
+------------
+
+
+Push into another repository.::
++
+------------
+satellite$ git clone mothership:frotz/.git frotz <1>
+satellite$ cd frotz
+satellite$ cat .git/remotes/origin <2>
+URL: mothership:frotz/.git
+Pull: master:origin
+satellite$ echo 'Push: master:satellite' >>.git/remotes/origin <3>
+satellite$ edit/compile/test/commit
+satellite$ git push origin <4>
+
+mothership$ cd frotz
+mothership$ git checkout master
+mothership$ git pull . satellite <5>
+
+<1> mothership machine has a frotz repository under your home
+directory; clone from it to start a repository on the satellite
+machine.
+<2> clone creates this file by default. It arranges "git pull"
+to fetch and store the master branch head of mothership machine
+to local "origin" branch.
+<3> arrange "git push" to push local "master" branch to
+"satellite" branch of the mothership machine.
+<4> push will stash our work away on "satellite" branch on the
+mothership machine. You could use this as a back-up method.
+<5> on mothership machine, merge the work done on the satellite
+machine into the master branch.
+------------
+
+Branch off of a specific tag.::
++
+------------
+$ git checkout -b private2.6.14 v2.6.14 <1>
+$ edit/compile/test; git commit -a
+$ git checkout master
+$ git format-patch -k -m --stdout v2.6.14..private2.6.14 |
+ git am -3 -k <2>
+
+<1> create a private branch based on a well known (but somewhat behind)
+tag.
+<2> forward port all changes in private2.6.14 branch to master branch
+without a formal "merging".
+------------
+
+
+Integrator[[Integrator]]
+------------------------
+
+A fairly central person acting as the integrator in a group
+project receives changes made by others, reviews and integrates
+them and publishes the result for others to use, using these
+commands in addition to the ones needed by participants.
+
+ * gitlink:git-am[1] to apply patches e-mailed in from your
+ contributors.
+
+ * gitlink:git-pull[1] to merge from your trusted lieutenants.
+
+ * gitlink:git-format-patch[1] to prepare and send suggested
+ alternative to contributors.
+
+ * gitlink:git-revert[1] to undo botched commits.
+
+ * gitlink:git-push[1] to publish the bleeding edge.
+
+
+Examples
+~~~~~~~~
+
+My typical GIT day.::
++
+------------
+$ git status <1>
+$ git show-branch <2>
+$ mailx <3>
+& s 2 3 4 5 ./+to-apply
+& s 7 8 ./+hold-linus
+& q
+$ git checkout master
+$ git am -3 -i -s -u ./+to-apply <4>
+$ compile/test
+$ git checkout -b hold/linus && git am -3 -i -s -u ./+hold-linus <5>
+$ git checkout topic/one && git rebase master <6>
+$ git checkout pu && git reset --hard master <7>
+$ git pull . topic/one topic/two && git pull . hold/linus <8>
+$ git checkout maint
+$ git cherry-pick master~4 <9>
+$ compile/test
+$ git tag -s -m 'GIT 0.99.9x' v0.99.9x <10>
+$ git fetch ko && git show-branch master maint 'tags/ko-*' <11>
+$ git push ko <12>
+$ git push ko v0.99.9x <13>
+
+<1> see what I was in the middle of doing, if any.
+<2> see what topic branches I have and think about how ready
+they are.
+<3> read mails, save ones that are applicable, and save others
+that are not quite ready.
+<4> apply them, interactively, with my sign-offs.
+<5> create topic branch as needed and apply, again with my
+sign-offs.
+<6> rebase internal topic branch that has not been merged to the
+master, nor exposed as a part of a stable branch.
+<7> restart "pu" every time from the master.
+<8> and bundle topic branches still cooking.
+<9> backport a critical fix.
+<10> create a signed tag.
+<11> make sure I did not accidentally rewind master beyond what I
+already pushed out. "ko" shorthand points at the repository I have
+at kernel.org, and looks like this:
+ $ cat .git/remotes/ko
+ URL: kernel.org:/pub/scm/git/git.git
+ Pull: master:refs/tags/ko-master
+ Pull: maint:refs/tags/ko-maint
+ Push: master
+ Push: +pu
+ Push: maint
+In the output from "git show-branch", "master" should have
+everything "ko-master" has.
+<12> push out the bleeding edge.
+<13> push the tag out, too.

+
+
+Repository Administration[[Repository Administration]]
+------------------------------------------------------
+
+A repository administrator uses the following tools to set up
+and maintain access to the repository by developers.
+
+ * gitlink:git-daemon[1] to allow anonymous download from
+ repository.
+
+ * gitlink:git-shell[1] can be used as a 'restricted login shell'
+ for shared central repository users.
+
+link:howto/update-hook-example.txt[update hook howto] has a good
+example of managing a shared central repository.
+
+
+Examples
+~~~~~~~~
+
+Run git-daemon to serve /pub/scm from inetd.::
++
+------------
+$ grep git /etc/inet.conf
+git stream tcp nowait nobody \
+ /usr/bin/git-daemon git-daemon --inetd --syslog --export-all /pub/scm
+------------
++
+The actual configuration line should be on one line.
+
+Give push/pull only access to developers.::
++
+------------
+$ grep git /etc/passwd <1>
+alice:x:1000:1000::/home/alice:/usr/bin/git-shell
+bob:x:1001:1001::/home/bob:/usr/bin/git-shell
+cindy:x:1002:1002::/home/cindy:/usr/bin/git-shell
+david:x:1003:1003::/home/david:/usr/bin/git-shell
+$ grep git /etc/shells <2>
+/usr/bin/git-shell
+
+<1> log-in shell is set to /usr/bin/git-shell, which does not
+allow anything but "git push" and "git pull". The users should
+get an ssh access to the machine.
+<2> in many distributions /etc/shells needs to list what is used
+as the login shell.
+------------
+
+CVS-style shared repository.::
++
+------------
+$ grep git /etc/group <1>

+==========
+
+NAME
+----
+git-add - Add files to the index file
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-add' [-n] [-v] [--] <file>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+A simple wrapper for git-update-index to add files to the index,
+for people used to do "cvs add".
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<file>...::
+ Files to add to the index.
+
+-n::
+ Don't actually add the file(s), just show if they exist.
+
+-v::
+ Be verbose.
+
+--::
+ This option can be used to separate command-line options from
+ the list of files, (useful when filenames might be mistaken
+ for command-line options).
+
+
+DISCUSSION
+----------
+
+The list of <file> given to the command is fed to `git-ls-files`
+command to list files that are not registered in the index and
+are not ignored/excluded by `$GIT_DIR/info/exclude` file or
+`.gitignore` file in each directory. This means two things:
+
+. You can put the name of a directory on the command line, and
+ the command will add all files in it and its subdirectories;
+
+. Giving the name of a file that is already in index does not
+ run `git-update-index` on that path.
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+git-add Documentation/\\*.txt::
+
+ Adds all `\*.txt` files that are not in the index under
+ `Documentation` directory and its subdirectories.
++
+Note that the asterisk `\*` is quoted from the shell in this
+example; this lets the command to include the files from
+subdirectories of `Documentation/` directory.
+
+git-add git-*.sh::
+
+ Adds all git-*.sh scripts that are not in the index.
+ Because this example lets shell expand the asterisk
+ (i.e. you are listing the files explicitly), it does not
+ add `subdir/git-foo.sh` to the index.

+=========
+
+NAME
+----
+git-am - Apply a series of patches in a mailbox
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-am' [--signoff] [--dotest=<dir>] [--utf8] [--binary] [--3way]
+ [--interactive] [--whitespace=<option>] <mbox>...
+'git-am' [--skip | --resolved]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Splits mail messages in a mailbox into commit log message,
+authorship information and patches, and applies them to the
+current branch.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--signoff::
+ Add `Signed-off-by:` line to the commit message, using
+ the committer identity of yourself.
+
+--dotest=<dir>::
+ Instead of `.dotest` directory, use <dir> as a working
+ area to store extracted patches.
+
+--utf8, --keep::
+ Pass `-u` and `-k` flags to `git-mailinfo` (see
+ gitlink:git-mailinfo[1]).
+
+--binary::
+ Pass `--allow-binary-replacement` flag to `git-apply`
+ (see gitlink:git-apply[1]).
+
+--3way::
+ When the patch does not apply cleanly, fall back on
+ 3-way merge, if the patch records the identity of blobs
+ it is supposed to apply to, and we have those blobs
+ locally.
+
+--skip::
+ Skip the current patch. This is only meaningful when
+ restarting an aborted patch.
+
+--whitespace=<option>::
+ This flag is passed to the `git-apply` program that applies
+ the patch.
+
+--interactive::
+ Run interactively, just like git-applymbox.
+
+--resolved::
+ After a patch failure (e.g. attempting to apply
+ conflicting patch), the user has applied it by hand and
+ the index file stores the result of the application.
+ Make a commit using the authorship and commit log
+ extracted from the e-mail message and the current index
+ file, and continue.
+
+DISCUSSION
+----------
+
+When initially invoking it, you give it names of the mailboxes
+to crunch. Upon seeing the first patch that does not apply, it
+aborts in the middle, just like 'git-applymbox' does. You can
+recover from this in one of two ways:
+
+. skip the current one by re-running the command with '--skip'
+ option.
+
+. hand resolve the conflict in the working directory, and update
+ the index file to bring it in a state that the patch should
+ have produced. Then run the command with '--resolved' option.
+
+The command refuses to process new mailboxes while `.dotest`
+directory exists, so if you decide to start over from scratch,
+run `rm -f .dotest` before running the command with mailbox
+names.

+============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-apply - Apply patch on a git index file and a work tree
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-apply' [--stat] [--numstat] [--summary] [--check] [--index] [--apply]
+ [--no-add] [--index-info] [--allow-binary-replacement] [-z] [-pNUM]
+ [-CNUM] [--whitespace=<nowarn|warn|error|error-all|strip>]
+ [<patch>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Reads supplied diff output and applies it on a git index file
+and a work tree.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<patch>...::
+ The files to read patch from. '-' can be used to read
+ from the standard input.
+
+--stat::
+ Instead of applying the patch, output diffstat for the
+ input. Turns off "apply".
+
+--numstat::
+ Similar to \--stat, but shows number of added and
+ deleted lines in decimal notation and pathname without
+ abbreviation, to make it more machine friendly. Turns
+ off "apply".
+
+--summary::
+ Instead of applying the patch, output a condensed
+ summary of information obtained from git diff extended
+ headers, such as creations, renames and mode changes.
+ Turns off "apply".
+
+--check::
+ Instead of applying the patch, see if the patch is
+ applicable to the current work tree and/or the index
+ file and detects errors. Turns off "apply".
+
+--index::
+ When --check is in effect, or when applying the patch
+ (which is the default when none of the options that
+ disables it is in effect), make sure the patch is
+ applicable to what the current index file records. If
+ the file to be patched in the work tree is not
+ up-to-date, it is flagged as an error. This flag also
+ causes the index file to be updated.
+
+--index-info::
+ Newer git-diff output has embedded 'index information'
+ for each blob to help identify the original version that
+ the patch applies to. When this flag is given, and if
+ the original version of the blob is available locally,
+ outputs information about them to the standard output.
+
+-z::
+ When showing the index information, do not munge paths,
+ but use NUL terminated machine readable format. Without
+ this flag, the pathnames output will have TAB, LF, and
+ backslash characters replaced with `\t`, `\n`, and `\\`,
+ respectively.
+
+-p<n>::
+ Remove <n> leading slashes from traditional diff paths. The
+ default is 1.
+
+-C<n>::
+ Ensure at least <n> lines of surrounding context match before
+ and after each change. When fewer lines of surrounding
+ context exist they all most match. By default no context is
+ ever ignored.
+
+--apply::
+ If you use any of the options marked ``Turns off
+ "apply"'' above, git-apply reads and outputs the
+ information you asked without actually applying the
+ patch. Give this flag after those flags to also apply
+ the patch.
+
+--no-add::
+ When applying a patch, ignore additions made by the
+ patch. This can be used to extract common part between
+ two files by first running `diff` on them and applying
+ the result with this option, which would apply the
+ deletion part but not addition part.
+
+--allow-binary-replacement::
+ When applying a patch, which is a git-enhanced patch
+ that was prepared to record the pre- and post-image object
+ name in full, and the path being patched exactly matches
+ the object the patch applies to (i.e. "index" line's
+ pre-image object name is what is in the working tree),
+ and the post-image object is available in the object
+ database, use the post-image object as the patch
+ result. This allows binary files to be patched in a
+ very limited way.
+
+--whitespace=<option>::
+ When applying a patch, detect a new or modified line
+ that ends with trailing whitespaces (this includes a
+ line that solely consists of whitespaces). By default,
+ the command outputs warning messages and applies the
+ patch.
+ When `git-apply` is used for statistics and not applying a
+ patch, it defaults to `nowarn`.
+ You can use different `<option>` to control this
+ behaviour:
++
+* `nowarn` turns off the trailing whitespace warning.
+* `warn` outputs warnings for a few such errors, but applies the
+ patch (default).
+* `error` outputs warnings for a few such errors, and refuses
+ to apply the patch.
+* `error-all` is similar to `error` but shows all errors.
+* `strip` outputs warnings for a few such errors, strips out the
+ trailing whitespaces and applies the patch.
+
+
+Configuration
+-------------
+
+apply.whitespace::
+ When no `--whitespace` flag is given from the command
+ line, this configuration item is used as the default.

+git-applymbox(1)
+================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-applymbox - Apply a series of patches in a mailbox
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-applymbox' [-u] [-k] [-q] [-m] ( -c .dotest/<num> | <mbox> ) [ <signoff> ]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Splits mail messages in a mailbox into commit log message,
+authorship information and patches, and applies them to the
+current branch.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-q::
+ Apply patches interactively. The user will be given
+ opportunity to edit the log message and the patch before
+ attempting to apply it.
+
+-k::
+ Usually the program 'cleans up' the Subject: header line
+ to extract the title line for the commit log message,
+ among which (1) remove 'Re:' or 're:', (2) leading
+ whitespaces, (3) '[' up to ']', typically '[PATCH]', and
+ then prepends "[PATCH] ". This flag forbids this
+ munging, and is most useful when used to read back 'git
+ format-patch --mbox' output.
+
+-m::
+ Patches are applied with `git-apply` command, and unless
+ it cleanly applies without fuzz, the processing fails.
+ With this flag, if a tree that the patch applies cleanly
+ is found in a repository, the patch is applied to the
+ tree and then a 3-way merge between the resulting tree
+ and the current tree.
+
+-u::
+ By default, the commit log message, author name and
+ author email are taken from the e-mail without any
+ charset conversion, after minimally decoding MIME
+ transfer encoding. This flag causes the resulting
+ commit to be encoded in utf-8 by transliterating them.
+ Note that the patch is always used as is without charset
+ conversion, even with this flag.
+
+-c .dotest/<num>::
+ When the patch contained in an e-mail does not cleanly
+ apply, the command exits with an error message. The
+ patch and extracted message are found in .dotest/, and
+ you could re-run 'git applymbox' with '-c .dotest/<num>'
+ flag to restart the process after inspecting and fixing
+ them.
+
+<mbox>::
+ The name of the file that contains the e-mail messages
+ with patches. This file should be in the UNIX mailbox
+ format. See 'SubmittingPatches' document to learn about
+ the formatting convention for e-mail submission.
+
+<signoff>::
+ The name of the file that contains your "Signed-off-by"
+ line. See 'SubmittingPatches' document to learn what
+ "Signed-off-by" line means. You can also just say
+ 'yes', 'true', 'me', or 'please' to use an automatically
+ generated "Signed-off-by" line based on your committer
+ identity.

+git-archimport(1)
+=================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-archimport - Import an Arch repository into git
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-archimport' [-h] [-v] [-o] [-a] [-f] [-T] [-D depth] [-t tempdir]
+ <archive/branch> [ <archive/branch> ]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Imports a project from one or more Arch repositories. It will follow branches
+and repositories within the namespaces defined by the <archive/branch>
+parameters supplied. If it cannot find the remote branch a merge comes from
+it will just import it as a regular commit. If it can find it, it will mark it
+as a merge whenever possible (see discussion below).
+
+The script expects you to provide the key roots where it can start the import
+from an 'initial import' or 'tag' type of Arch commit. It will follow and
+import new branches within the provided roots.
+
+It expects to be dealing with one project only. If it sees
+branches that have different roots, it will refuse to run. In that case,
+edit your <archive/branch> parameters to define clearly the scope of the
+import.
+
+`git-archimport` uses `tla` extensively in the background to access the
+Arch repository.
+Make sure you have a recent version of `tla` available in the path. `tla` must
+know about the repositories you pass to `git-archimport`.
+
+For the initial import `git-archimport` expects to find itself in an empty
+directory. To follow the development of a project that uses Arch, rerun
+`git-archimport` with the same parameters as the initial import to perform
+incremental imports.
+
+MERGES
+------
+Patch merge data from Arch is used to mark merges in git as well. git
+does not care much about tracking patches, and only considers a merge when a
+branch incorporates all the commits since the point they forked. The end result
+is that git will have a good idea of how far branches have diverged. So the
+import process does lose some patch-trading metadata.
+
+Fortunately, when you try and merge branches imported from Arch,
+git will find a good merge base, and it has a good chance of identifying
+patches that have been traded out-of-sequence between the branches.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+
+-h::
+ Display usage.
+
+-v::
+ Verbose output.
+
+-T::
+ Many tags. Will create a tag for every commit, reflecting the commit
+ name in the Arch repository.
+
+-f::
+ Use the fast patchset import strategy. This can be significantly
+ faster for large trees, but cannot handle directory renames or
+ permissions changes. The default strategy is slow and safe.
+
+-o::
+ Use this for compatibility with old-style branch names used by
+ earlier versions of git-archimport. Old-style branch names
+ were category--branch, whereas new-style branch names are
+ archive,category--branch--version.
+
+-D <depth>::
+ Follow merge ancestry and attempt to import trees that have been
+ merged from. Specify a depth greater than 1 if patch logs have been
+ pruned.
+
+-a::
+ Attempt to auto-register archives at http://mirrors.sourcecontrol.net
+ This is particularly useful with the -D option.
+
+-t <tmpdir>::
+ Override the default tempdir.
+
+
+<archive/branch>::
+ Archive/branch identifier in a format that `tla log` understands.

+git-bisect(1)
+=============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-bisect - Find the change that introduced a bug
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git bisect' <subcommand> <options>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The command takes various subcommands, and different options
+depending on the subcommand:
+
+ git bisect start [<paths>...]
+ git bisect bad <rev>
+ git bisect good <rev>
+ git bisect reset [<branch>]
+ git bisect visualize
+ git bisect replay <logfile>
+ git bisect log
+
+This command uses 'git-rev-list --bisect' option to help drive
+the binary search process to find which change introduced a bug,
+given an old "good" commit object name and a later "bad" commit
+object name.
+
+The way you use it is:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git bisect start
+$ git bisect bad # Current version is bad
+$ git bisect good v2.6.13-rc2 # v2.6.13-rc2 was the last version
+ # tested that was good
+------------------------------------------------
+
+When you give at least one bad and one good versions, it will
+bisect the revision tree and say something like:
+
+------------------------------------------------
+Bisecting: 675 revisions left to test after this
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and check out the state in the middle. Now, compile that kernel, and boot
+it. Now, let's say that this booted kernel works fine, then just do
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git bisect good # this one is good
+------------------------------------------------
+
+which will now say
+
+------------------------------------------------
+Bisecting: 337 revisions left to test after this
+------------------------------------------------
+
+and you continue along, compiling that one, testing it, and depending on
+whether it is good or bad, you say "git bisect good" or "git bisect bad",
+and ask for the next bisection.
+
+Until you have no more left, and you'll have been left with the first bad
+kernel rev in "refs/bisect/bad".
+
+Oh, and then after you want to reset to the original head, do a
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git bisect reset
+------------------------------------------------
+
+to get back to the master branch, instead of being in one of the bisection
+branches ("git bisect start" will do that for you too, actually: it will
+reset the bisection state, and before it does that it checks that you're
+not using some old bisection branch).
+
+During the bisection process, you can say
+
+------------
+$ git bisect visualize
+------------
+
+to see the currently remaining suspects in `gitk`.
+
+The good/bad input is logged, and `git bisect
+log` shows what you have done so far. You can truncate its
+output somewhere and save it in a file, and run
+
+------------
+$ git bisect replay that-file
+------------
+
+if you find later you made a mistake telling good/bad about a
+revision.
+
+If in a middle of bisect session, you know what the bisect
+suggested to try next is not a good one to test (e.g. the change
+the commit introduces is known not to work in your environment
+and you know it does not have anything to do with the bug you
+are chasing), you may want to find a near-by commit and try that
+instead. It goes something like this:
+
+------------
+$ git bisect good/bad # previous round was good/bad.
+Bisecting: 337 revisions left to test after this
+$ git bisect visualize # oops, that is uninteresting.
+$ git reset --hard HEAD~3 # try 3 revs before what
+ # was suggested
+------------
+
+Then compile and test the one you chose to try. After that,
+tell bisect what the result was as usual.
+
+You can further cut down the number of trials if you know what
+part of the tree is involved in the problem you are tracking
+down, by giving paths parameters when you say `bisect start`,
+like this:
+
+------------
+$ git bisect start arch/i386 include/asm-i386

+git-branch - Create a new branch, or remove an old one
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-branch' [[-f] <branchname> [<start-point>]]
+'git-branch' (-d | -D) <branchname>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+If no argument is provided, show available branches and mark current
+branch with star. Otherwise, create a new branch of name <branchname>.
+If a starting point is also specified, that will be where the branch is
+created, otherwise it will be created at the current HEAD.
+
+With a `-d` or `-D` option, `<branchname>` will be deleted.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-d::
+ Delete a branch. The branch must be fully merged.
+
+-D::
+ Delete a branch irrespective of its index status.
+
+-f::
+ Force a reset of <branchname> to <start-point> (or current head).
+
+<branchname>::
+ The name of the branch to create or delete.
+
+<start-point>::
+ Where to create the branch; defaults to HEAD. This
+ option has no meaning with -d and -D.
+
+
+Examples
+~~~~~~~~
+
+Start development off of a known tag::
++
+------------
+$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/.../linux-2.6 my2.6
+$ cd my2.6
+$ git branch my2.6.14 v2.6.14 <1>
+$ git checkout my2.6.14
+
+<1> These two steps are the same as "checkout -b my2.6.14 v2.6.14".
+------------
+
+Delete unneeded branch::
++
+------------
+$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/.../git.git my.git
+$ cd my.git
+$ git branch -D todo <1>
+
+<1> delete todo branch even if the "master" branch does not have all
+commits from todo branch.

+git-cat-file - Provide content or type information for repository objects
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-cat-file' [-t | -s | -e | <type>] <object>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Provides content or type of objects in the repository. The type
+is required unless '-t' is used to find the object type,
+or '-s' is used to find the object size.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<object>::
+ The sha1 identifier of the object.
+
+-t::
+ Instead of the content, show the object type identified by
+ <object>.
+
+-s::
+ Instead of the content, show the object size identified by
+ <object>.
+
+-e::
+ Suppress all output; instead exit with zero status if <object>
+ exists and is a valid object.
+
+<type>::
+ Typically this matches the real type of <object> but asking
+ for a type that can trivially be dereferenced from the given
+ <object> is also permitted. An example is to ask for a
+ "tree" with <object> being a commit object that contains it,
+ or to ask for a "blob" with <object> being a tag object that
+ points at it.
+
+OUTPUT
+------
+If '-t' is specified, one of the <type>.
+
+If '-s' is specified, the size of the <object> in bytes.
+
+If '-e' is specified, no output.
+
+Otherwise the raw (though uncompressed) contents of the <object> will
+be returned.

+git-check-ref-format(1)
+=======================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-check-ref-format - Make sure ref name is well formed
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-check-ref-format' <refname>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Checks if a given 'refname' is acceptable, and exits non-zero if
+it is not.
+
+A reference is used in git to specify branches and tags. A
+branch head is stored under `$GIT_DIR/refs/heads` directory, and
+a tag is stored under `$GIT_DIR/refs/tags` directory. git
+imposes the following rules on how refs are named:
+
+. It could be named hierarchically (i.e. separated with slash
+ `/`), but each of its component cannot begin with a dot `.`;
+
+. It cannot have two consecutive dots `..` anywhere;
+
+. It cannot have ASCII control character (i.e. bytes whose
+ values are lower than \040, or \177 `DEL`), space, tilde `~`,
+ caret `{caret}`, colon `:`, question-mark `?`, asterisk `*`,
+ or open bracket `[` anywhere;
+
+. It cannot end with a slash `/`.
+
+These rules makes it easy for shell script based tools to parse
+refnames, pathname expansion by the shell when a refname is used
+unquoted (by mistake), and also avoids ambiguities in certain
+refname expressions (see gitlink:git-rev-parse[1]). Namely:
+
+. double-dot `..` are often used as in `ref1..ref2`, and in some
+ context this notation means `{caret}ref1 ref2` (i.e. not in
+ ref1 and in ref2).
+
+. tilde `~` and caret `{caret}` are used to introduce postfix
+ 'nth parent' and 'peel onion' operation.
+
+. colon `:` is used as in `srcref:dstref` to mean "use srcref\'s
+ value and store it in dstref" in fetch and push operations.

+git-checkout-index(1)
+=====================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-checkout-index - Copy files from the index to the working directory
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-checkout-index' [-u] [-q] [-a] [-f] [-n] [--prefix=<string>]
+ [--stage=<number>|all]
+ [--temp]
+ [-z] [--stdin]
+ [--] [<file>]\*
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Will copy all files listed from the index to the working directory
+(not overwriting existing files).
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-u|--index::
+ update stat information for the checked out entries in
+ the index file.
+
+-q|--quiet::
+ be quiet if files exist or are not in the index
+
+-f|--force::
+ forces overwrite of existing files
+
+-a|--all::
+ checks out all files in the index. Cannot be used
+ together with explicit filenames.
+
+-n|--no-create::
+ Don't checkout new files, only refresh files already checked
+ out.
+
+--prefix=<string>::
+ When creating files, prepend <string> (usually a directory
+ including a trailing /)
+
+--stage=<number>|all::
+ Instead of checking out unmerged entries, copy out the
+ files from named stage. <number> must be between 1 and 3.
+ Note: --stage=all automatically implies --temp.
+
+--temp::
+ Instead of copying the files to the working directory
+ write the content to temporary files. The temporary name
+ associations will be written to stdout.
+
+--stdin::
+ Instead of taking list of paths from the command line,
+ read list of paths from the standard input. Paths are
+ separated by LF (i.e. one path per line) by default.
+
+-z::
+ Only meaningful with `--stdin`; paths are separated with
+ NUL character instead of LF.
+
+--::
+ Do not interpret any more arguments as options.
+
+The order of the flags used to matter, but not anymore.
+
+Just doing `git-checkout-index` does nothing. You probably meant
+`git-checkout-index -a`. And if you want to force it, you want
+`git-checkout-index -f -a`.
+
+Intuitiveness is not the goal here. Repeatability is. The reason for
+the "no arguments means no work" behavior is that from scripts you are
+supposed to be able to do:
+
+----------------
+$ find . -name '*.h' -print0 | xargs -0 git-checkout-index -f --
+----------------
+
+which will force all existing `*.h` files to be replaced with their
+cached copies. If an empty command line implied "all", then this would
+force-refresh everything in the index, which was not the point. But
+since git-checkout-index accepts --stdin it would be faster to use:
+
+----------------
+$ find . -name '*.h' -print0 | git-checkout-index -f -z --stdin
+----------------
+
+The `--` is just a good idea when you know the rest will be filenames;
+it will prevent problems with a filename of, for example, `-a`.
+Using `--` is probably a good policy in scripts.
+
+
+Using --temp or --stage=all
+---------------------------
+When `--temp` is used (or implied by `--stage=all`)
+`git-checkout-index` will create a temporary file for each index
+entry being checked out. The index will not be updated with stat
+information. These options can be useful if the caller needs all
+stages of all unmerged entries so that the unmerged files can be
+processed by an external merge tool.
+
+A listing will be written to stdout providing the association of
+temporary file names to tracked path names. The listing format
+has two variations:
+
+ . tempname TAB path RS
++
+The first format is what gets used when `--stage` is omitted or
+is not `--stage=all`. The field tempname is the temporary file
+name holding the file content and path is the tracked path name in
+the index. Only the requested entries are output.
+
+ . stage1temp SP stage2temp SP stage3tmp TAB path RS
++
+The second format is what gets used when `--stage=all`. The three
+stage temporary fields (stage1temp, stage2temp, stage3temp) list the
+name of the temporary file if there is a stage entry in the index
+or `.` if there is no stage entry. Paths which only have a stage 0
+entry will always be omitted from the output.
+
+In both formats RS (the record separator) is newline by default
+but will be the null byte if -z was passed on the command line.
+The temporary file names are always safe strings; they will never
+contain directory separators or whitespace characters. The path
+field is always relative to the current directory and the temporary
+file names are always relative to the top level directory.
+
+If the object being copied out to a temporary file is a symbolic
+link the content of the link will be written to a normal file. It is
+up to the end-user or the Porcelain to make use of this information.
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+To update and refresh only the files already checked out::
++
+----------------
+$ git-checkout-index -n -f -a && git-update-index --ignore-missing --refresh
+----------------
+
+Using `git-checkout-index` to "export an entire tree"::
+ The prefix ability basically makes it trivial to use
+ `git-checkout-index` as an "export as tree" function.
+ Just read the desired tree into the index, and do:
++
+----------------
+$ git-checkout-index --prefix=git-export-dir/ -a
+----------------
++
+`git-checkout-index` will "export" the index into the specified
+directory.
++
+The final "/" is important. The exported name is literally just
+prefixed with the specified string. Contrast this with the
+following example.
+
+Export files with a prefix::
++
+----------------
+$ git-checkout-index --prefix=.merged- Makefile
+----------------
++
+This will check out the currently cached copy of `Makefile`
+into the file `.merged-Makefile`.

+git-checkout(1)
+===============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-checkout - Checkout and switch to a branch
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-checkout' [-f] [-b <new_branch>] [-m] [<branch>]
+'git-checkout' [-m] [<branch>] <paths>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+When <paths> are not given, this command switches branches by
+updating the index and working tree to reflect the specified
+branch, <branch>, and updating HEAD to be <branch> or, if
+specified, <new_branch>. Using -b will cause <new_branch> to
+be created.
+
+When <paths> are given, this command does *not* switch
+branches. It updates the named paths in the working tree from
+the index file (i.e. it runs `git-checkout-index -f -u`). In
+this case, `-f` and `-b` options are meaningless and giving
+either of them results in an error. <branch> argument can be
+used to specify a specific tree-ish to update the index for the
+given paths before updating the working tree.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-f::
+ Force a re-read of everything.
+
+-b::
+ Create a new branch and start it at <branch>.
+
+-m::
+ If you have local modifications to one or more files that
+ are different between the current branch and the branch to
+ which you are switching, the command refuses to switch
+ branches in order to preserve your modifications in context.
+ However, with this option, a three-way merge between the current
+ branch, your working tree contents, and the new branch
+ is done, and you will be on the new branch.
++
+When a merge conflict happens, the index entries for conflicting
+paths are left unmerged, and you need to resolve the conflicts
+and mark the resolved paths with `git update-index`.
+
+<new_branch>::
+ Name for the new branch.
+
+<branch>::
+ Branch to checkout; may be any object ID that resolves to a
+ commit. Defaults to HEAD.
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+. The following sequence checks out the `master` branch, reverts
+the `Makefile` to two revisions back, deletes hello.c by
+mistake, and gets it back from the index.
++
+------------
+$ git checkout master <1>
+$ git checkout master~2 Makefile <2>
+$ rm -f hello.c
+$ git checkout hello.c <3>
+
+<1> switch branch
+<2> take out a file out of other commit
+<3> or "git checkout -- hello.c", as in the next example.
+------------
++
+If you have an unfortunate branch that is named `hello.c`, the
+last step above would be confused as an instruction to switch to
+that branch. You should instead write:
++
+------------
+$ git checkout -- hello.c
+------------
+
+. After working in a wrong branch, switching to the correct
+branch would be done using:
++
+------------
+$ git checkout mytopic
+------------
++
+However, your "wrong" branch and correct "mytopic" branch may
+differ in files that you have locally modified, in which case,
+the above checkout would fail like this:
++
+------------
+$ git checkout mytopic
+fatal: Entry 'frotz' not uptodate. Cannot merge.
+------------
++
+You can give the `-m` flag to the command, which would try a
+three-way merge:
++
+------------
+$ git checkout -m mytopic
+Auto-merging frotz
+------------
++
+After this three-way merge, the local modifications are _not_
+registered in your index file, so `git diff` would show you what
+changes you made since the tip of the new branch.
+
+. When a merge conflict happens during switching branches with
+the `-m` option, you would see something like this:
++
+------------
+$ git checkout -m mytopic
+Auto-merging frotz
+merge: warning: conflicts during merge
+ERROR: Merge conflict in frotz
+fatal: merge program failed
+------------
++
+At this point, `git diff` shows the changes cleanly merged as in
+the previous example, as well as the changes in the conflicted
+files. Edit and resolve the conflict and mark it resolved with
+`git update-index` as usual:
++
+------------
+$ edit frotz
+$ git update-index frotz
+------------

+NAME
+----
+git-cherry-pick - Apply the change introduced by an existing commit
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-cherry-pick' [--edit] [-n] [-r] <commit>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Given one existing commit, apply the change the patch introduces, and record a
+new commit that records it. This requires your working tree to be clean (no
+modifications from the HEAD commit).
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<commit>::
+ Commit to cherry-pick.
+
+-e|--edit::
+ With this option, `git-cherry-pick` will let you edit the commit
+ message prior committing.
+
+-r|--replay::
+ Usually the command appends which commit was
+ cherry-picked after the original commit message when
+ making a commit. This option, '--replay', causes it to
+ use the original commit message intact. This is useful
+ when you are reordering the patches in your private tree
+ before publishing.
+
+-n|--no-commit::
+ Usually the command automatically creates a commit with
+ a commit log message stating which commit was
+ cherry-picked. This flag applies the change necessary
+ to cherry-pick the named commit to your working tree,
+ but does not make the commit. In addition, when this
+ option is used, your working tree does not have to match
+ the HEAD commit. The cherry-pick is done against the
+ beginning state of your working tree.
++
+This is useful when cherry-picking more than one commits'
+effect to your working tree in a row.

+NAME

+git-clone-pack - Clones a repository by receiving packed objects
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-clone-pack' [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory> [<head>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Clones a repository into the current repository by invoking
+'git-upload-pack', possibly on the remote host via ssh, in
+the named repository, and stores the sent pack in the local
+repository.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--exec=<git-upload-pack>::
+ Use this to specify the path to 'git-upload-pack' on the
+ remote side, if it is not found on your $PATH.
+ 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).
+
+<host>::
+ A remote host that houses the repository. When this
+ part is specified, 'git-upload-pack' is invoked via
+ ssh.
+
+<directory>::
+ The repository to sync from.
+
+<head>...::
+ 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.

+
+NAME
+----
+git-clone - Clones a repository
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-clone' [-l [-s]] [-q] [-n] [--bare] [-o <name>] [-u <upload-pack>]
+ [--reference <repository>]
+ <repository> [<directory>]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Clones a repository into a newly created directory. All remote
+branch heads are copied under `$GIT_DIR/refs/heads/`, except
+that the remote `master` is also copied to `origin` branch.
+
+In addition, `$GIT_DIR/remotes/origin` file is set up to have
+this line:
+
+ Pull: master:origin
+
+This is to help the typical workflow of working off of the
+remote `master` branch. Every time `git pull` without argument
+is run, the progress on the remote `master` branch is tracked by
+copying it into the local `origin` branch, and merged into the
+branch you are currently working on. Remote branches other than
+`master` are also added there to be tracked.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--local::
+-l::
+ When the repository to clone from is on a local machine,
+ this flag bypasses normal "git aware" transport
+ mechanism and clones the repository by making a copy of
+ HEAD and everything under objects and refs directories.
+ The files under .git/objects/ directory are hardlinked
+ to save space when possible.
+
+--shared::
+-s::
+ When the repository to clone is on the local machine,
+ instead of using hard links, automatically setup
+ .git/objects/info/alternates to share the objects
+ with the source repository. The resulting repository
+ starts out without any object of its own.
+
+--reference <repository>::
+ If the reference repository is on the local machine
+ automatically setup .git/objects/info/alternates to
+ obtain objects from the reference repository. Using
+ an already existing repository as an alternate will
+ require less objects to be copied from the repository
+ being cloned, reducing network and local storage costs.
+
+--quiet::
+-q::
+ Operate quietly. This flag is passed to "rsync" and
+ "git-clone-pack" commands when given.
+
+-n::
+ No checkout of HEAD is performed after the clone is complete.
+
+--bare::
+ Make a 'bare' GIT repository. That is, instead of
+ creating `<directory>` and placing the administrative
+ files in `<directory>/.git`, make the `<directory>`
+ itself the `$GIT_DIR`. This implies `-n` option. When
+ this option is used, neither the `origin` branch nor the
+ default `remotes/origin` file is created.
+
+-o <name>::
+ Instead of using the branch name 'origin' to keep track
+ of the upstream repository, use <name> instead. Note
+ that the shorthand name stored in `remotes/origin` is
+ not affected, but the local branch name to pull the
+ remote `master` branch into is.
+
+--upload-pack <upload-pack>::
+-u <upload-pack>::
+ When given, and the repository to clone from is handled
+ by 'git-clone-pack', '--exec=<upload-pack>' is passed to
+ the command to specify non-default path for the command
+ run on the other end.
+
+<repository>::
+ The (possibly remote) repository to clone from. It can
+ be any URL git-fetch supports.
+
+<directory>::
+ The name of a new directory to clone into. The "humanish"
+ part of the source repository is used if no directory is
+ explicitly given ("repo" for "/path/to/repo.git" and "foo"
+ for "host.xz:foo/.git"). Cloning into an existing directory
+ is not allowed.
+
+Examples
+~~~~~~~~
+
+Clone from upstream::
++
+------------
+$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/.../linux-2.6 my2.6
+$ cd my2.6
+$ make
+------------
+
+
+Make a local clone that borrows from the current directory, without checking things out::
++
+------------
+$ git clone -l -s -n . ../copy
+$ cd copy
+$ git show-branch
+------------
+
+
+Clone from upstream while borrowing from an existing local directory::
++
+------------
+$ git clone --reference my2.6 \
+ git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/.../linux-2.7 \
+ my2.7
+$ cd my2.7
+------------
+
+
+Create a bare repository to publish your changes to the public::
++
+------------
+$ git clone --bare -l /home/proj/.git /pub/scm/proj.git
+------------
+
+
+Create a repository on the kernel.org machine that borrows from Linus::
++
+------------
+$ git clone --bare -l -s /pub/scm/.../torvalds/linux-2.6.git \
+ /pub/scm/.../me/subsys-2.6.git

+git-commit-tree(1)
+==================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-commit-tree - Creates a new commit object
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-commit-tree' <tree> [-p <parent commit>]\* < changelog
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Creates a new commit object based on the provided tree object and
+emits the new commit object id on stdout. If no parent is given then
+it is considered to be an initial tree.
+
+A commit object usually has 1 parent (a commit after a change) or up
+to 16 parents. More than one parent represents a merge of branches
+that led to them.
+
+While a tree represents a particular directory state of a working
+directory, a commit represents that state in "time", and explains how
+to get there.
+
+Normally a commit would identify a new "HEAD" state, and while git
+doesn't care where you save the note about that state, in practice we
+tend to just write the result to the file that is pointed at by
+`.git/HEAD`, so that we can always see what the last committed
+state was.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<tree>::
+ An existing tree object
+
+-p <parent commit>::
+ Each '-p' indicates the id of a parent commit object.
+
+
+Commit Information
+------------------
+
+A commit encapsulates:
+
+- all parent object ids
+- author name, email and date
+- committer name and email and the commit time.
+
+If not provided, "git-commit-tree" uses your name, hostname and domain to
+provide author and committer info. This can be overridden by
+either `.git/config` file, or using the following environment variables.
+
+ GIT_AUTHOR_NAME
+ GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL
+ GIT_AUTHOR_DATE
+ GIT_COMMITTER_NAME
+ GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL
+
+(nb "<", ">" and "\n"s are stripped)
+
+In `.git/config` file, the following items are used for GIT_AUTHOR_NAME and
+GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL:
+
+ [user]
+ name = "Your Name"
+ email = "your@email.address.xz"
+
+A commit comment is read from stdin (max 999 chars). If a changelog
+entry is not provided via "<" redirection, "git-commit-tree" will just wait
+for one to be entered and terminated with ^D.
+
+
+Diagnostics
+-----------
+You don't exist. Go away!::
+ The passwd(5) gecos field couldn't be read
+Your parents must have hated you!::
+ The password(5) gecos field is longer than a giant static buffer.
+Your sysadmin must hate you!::
+ The password(5) name field is longer than a giant static buffer.

+git-commit(1)
+=============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-commit - Record your changes
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-commit' [-a] [-s] [-v] [(-c | -C) <commit> | -F <file> | -m <msg>]
+ [--no-verify] [--amend] [-e] [--author <author>]
+ [--] [[-i | -o ]<file>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Updates the index file for given paths, or all modified files if
+'-a' is specified, and makes a commit object. The command
+VISUAL and EDITOR environment variables to edit the commit log
+message.
+
+Several environment variable are used during commits. They are
+documented in gitlink:git-commit-tree[1].
+
+
+This command can run `commit-msg`, `pre-commit`, and
+`post-commit` hooks. See link:hooks.html[hooks] for more
+information.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-a|--all::
+ Update all paths in the index file. This flag notices
+ files that have been modified and deleted, but new files
+ you have not told git about are not affected.
+
+-c or -C <commit>::
+ Take existing commit object, and reuse the log message
+ and the authorship information (including the timestamp)
+ when creating the commit. With '-C', the editor is not
+ invoked; with '-c' the user can further edit the commit
+ message.
+
+-F <file>::
+ Take the commit message from the given file. Use '-' to
+ read the message from the standard input.
+
+--author <author>::
+ Override the author name used in the commit. Use
+ `A U Thor <author@example.com>` format.
+
+-m <msg>::
+ Use the given <msg> as the commit message.
+
+-s|--signoff::
+ Add Signed-off-by line at the end of the commit message.
+
+-v|--verify::
+ Look for suspicious lines the commit introduces, and
+ abort committing if there is one. The definition of
+ 'suspicious lines' is currently the lines that has
+ trailing whitespaces, and the lines whose indentation
+ has a SP character immediately followed by a TAB
+ character. This is the default.
+
+-n|--no-verify::
+ The opposite of `--verify`.
+
+-e|--edit::
+ The message taken from file with `-F`, command line with
+ `-m`, and from file with `-C` are usually used as the
+ commit log message unmodified. This option lets you
+ further edit the message taken from these sources.
+
+--amend::
+
+ Used to amend the tip of the current branch. Prepare the tree
+ object you would want to replace the latest commit as usual
+ (this includes the usual -i/-o and explicit paths), and the
+ commit log editor is seeded with the commit message from the
+ tip of the current branch. The commit you create replaces the
+ current tip -- if it was a merge, it will have the parents of
+ the current tip as parents -- so the current top commit is
+ discarded.
++
+--
+It is a rough equivalent for:
+------
+ $ git reset --soft HEAD^
+ $ ... do something else to come up with the right tree ...
+ $ git commit -c ORIG_HEAD
+
+------
+but can be used to amend a merge commit.
+--
+
+-i|--include::
+ Instead of committing only the files specified on the
+ command line, update them in the index file and then
+ commit the whole index. This is the traditional
+ behaviour.
+
+-o|--only::
+ Commit only the files specified on the command line.
+ This format cannot be used during a merge, nor when the
+ index and the latest commit does not match on the
+ specified paths to avoid confusion.
+
+--::
+ Do not interpret any more arguments as options.
+
+<file>...::
+ Files to be committed. The meaning of these is
+ different between `--include` and `--only`. Without
+ either, it defaults `--only` semantics.
+
+If you make a commit and then found a mistake immediately after
+that, you can recover from it with gitlink:git-reset[1].
+
+
+Discussion
+----------
+
+`git commit` without _any_ parameter commits the tree structure
+recorded by the current index file. This is a whole-tree commit
+even the command is invoked from a subdirectory.
+
+`git commit --include paths...` is equivalent to
+
+ git update-index --remove paths...
+ git commit
+
+That is, update the specified paths to the index and then commit
+the whole tree.
+
+`git commit paths...` largely bypasses the index file and
+commits only the changes made to the specified paths. It has
+however several safety valves to prevent confusion.
+
+. It refuses to run during a merge (i.e. when
+ `$GIT_DIR/MERGE_HEAD` exists), and reminds trained git users
+ that the traditional semantics now needs -i flag.
+
+. It refuses to run if named `paths...` are different in HEAD
+ and the index (ditto about reminding). Added paths are OK.
+ This is because an earlier `git diff` (not `git diff HEAD`)
+ would have shown the differences since the last `git
+ update-index paths...` to the user, and an inexperienced user
+ may mistakenly think that the changes between the index and
+ the HEAD (i.e. earlier changes made before the last `git
+ update-index paths...` was done) are not being committed.
+
+. It reads HEAD commit into a temporary index file, updates the
+ specified `paths...` and makes a commit. At the same time,
+ the real index file is also updated with the same `paths...`.
+
+`git commit --all` updates the index file with _all_ changes to
+the working tree, and makes a whole-tree commit, regardless of
+which subdirectory the command is invoked in.

+git-cvsexportcommit(1)
+======================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-cvsexportcommit - Export a commit to a CVS checkout
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-cvsexportcommmit' [-h] [-v] [-c] [-p] [PARENTCOMMIT] COMMITID
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Exports a commit from GIT to a CVS checkout, making it easier
+to merge patches from a git repository into a CVS repository.
+
+Execute it from the root of the CVS working copy. GIT_DIR must be defined.
+See examples below.
+
+It does its best to do the safe thing, it will check that the files are
+unchanged and up to date in the CVS checkout, and it will not autocommit
+by default.
+
+Supports file additions, removals, and commits that affect binary files.
+
+If the commit is a merge commit, you must tell git-cvsapplycommit what parent
+should the changeset be done against.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+
+-c::
+ Commit automatically if the patch applied cleanly. It will not
+ commit if any hunks fail to apply or there were other problems.
+
+-p::
+ Be pedantic (paranoid) when applying patches. Invokes patch with
+ --fuzz=0
+
+-v::
+ Verbose.
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+Merge one patch into CVS::
++
+------------
+$ export GIT_DIR=~/project/.git
+$ cd ~/project_cvs_checkout
+$ git-cvsexportcommit -v <commit-sha1>
+$ cvs commit -F .mgs <files>
+------------
+
+Merge pending patches into CVS automatically -- only if you really know what you are doing ::
++
+------------
+$ export GIT_DIR=~/project/.git
+$ cd ~/project_cvs_checkout
+$ git-cherry cvshead myhead | sed -n 's/^+ //p' | xargs -l1 git-cvsexportcommit -c -p -v

+git-cvsimport(1)
+================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-cvsimport - Import a CVS repository into git
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-cvsimport' [-o <branch-for-HEAD>] [-h] [-v] [-d <CVSROOT>] [-s <subst>]
+ [-p <options-for-cvsps>] [-C <git_repository>] [-i] [-P <file>]
+ [-m] [-M regex] [<CVS_module>]
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Imports a CVS repository into git. It will either create a new
+repository, or incrementally import into an existing one.
+
+Splitting the CVS log into patch sets is done by 'cvsps'.
+At least version 2.1 is required.
+
+You should *never* do any work of your own on the branches that are
+created by git-cvsimport. The initial import will create and populate a
+"master" branch from the CVS repository's main branch which you're free
+to work with; after that, you need to 'git merge' incremental imports, or
+any CVS branches, yourself.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-d <CVSROOT>::
+ The root of the CVS archive. May be local (a simple path) or remote;
+ currently, only the :local:, :ext: and :pserver: access methods
+ are supported.
+
+-C <target-dir>::
+ The git repository to import to. If the directory doesn't
+ exist, it will be created. Default is the current directory.
+
+-i::
+ Import-only: don't perform a checkout after importing. This option
+ ensures the working directory and index remain untouched and will
+ not create them if they do not exist.
+
+-k::
+ Kill keywords: will extract files with -kk from the CVS archive
+ to avoid noisy changesets. Highly recommended, but off by default
+ to preserve compatibility with early imported trees.
+
+-u::
+ Convert underscores in tag and branch names to dots.
+
+-o <branch-for-HEAD>::
+ The 'HEAD' branch from CVS is imported to the 'origin' branch within
+ the git repository, as 'HEAD' already has a special meaning for git.
+ Use this option if you want to import into a different branch.
++
+Use '-o master' for continuing an import that was initially done by
+the old cvs2git tool.
+
+-p <options-for-cvsps>::
+ Additional options for cvsps.
+ The options '-u' and '-A' are implicit and should not be used here.
++
+If you need to pass multiple options, separate them with a comma.
+
+-P <cvsps-output-file>::
+ Instead of calling cvsps, read the provided cvsps output file. Useful
+ for debugging or when cvsps is being handled outside cvsimport.
+
+-m::
+ Attempt to detect merges based on the commit message. This option
+ will enable default regexes that try to capture the name source
+ branch name from the commit message.
+
+-M <regex>::
+ Attempt to detect merges based on the commit message with a custom
+ regex. It can be used with -m to also see the default regexes.
+ You must escape forward slashes.
+
+-v::
+ Verbosity: let 'cvsimport' report what it is doing.
+
+<CVS_module>::
+ The CVS module you want to import. Relative to <CVSROOT>.
+
+-h::
+ Print a short usage message and exit.
+
+-z <fuzz>::
+ Pass the timestamp fuzz factor to cvsps.
+
+-s <subst>::
+ Substitute the character "/" in branch names with <subst>
+
+-A <author-conv-file>::
+ CVS by default uses the unix username when writing its
+ commit logs. Using this option and an author-conv-file
+ in this format
++
+---------
+ exon=Andreas Ericsson <ae@op5.se>
+ spawn=Simon Pawn <spawn@frog-pond.org>
+
+---------
++
+git-cvsimport will make it appear as those authors had
+their GIT_AUTHOR_NAME and GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL set properly
+all along.
++
+For convenience, this data is saved to $GIT_DIR/cvs-authors
+each time the -A option is provided and read from that same
+file each time git-cvsimport is run.
++
+It is not recommended to use this feature if you intend to
+export changes back to CVS again later with
+git-link[1]::git-cvsexportcommit.
+
+OUTPUT
+------
+If '-v' is specified, the script reports what it is doing.
+
+Otherwise, success is indicated the Unix way, i.e. by simply exiting with
+a zero exit status.

+git-cvsserver(1)
+================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-cvsserver - A CVS server emulator for git
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+export CVS_SERVER=git-cvsserver
+'cvs' -d :ext:user@server/path/repo.git co <HEAD_name>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+This application is a CVS emulation layer for git.
+
+It is highly functional. However, not all methods are implemented,
+and for those methods that are implemented,
+not all switches are implemented.
+
+Testing has been done using both the CLI CVS client, and the Eclipse CVS
+plugin. Most functionality works fine with both of these clients.
+
+LIMITATIONS
+-----------
+
+Currently cvsserver works over SSH connections for read/write clients, and
+over pserver for anonymous CVS access.
+
+CVS clients cannot tag, branch or perform GIT merges.
+
+INSTALLATION
+------------
+
+1. If you are going to offer anonymous CVS access via pserver, add a line in
+ /etc/inetd.conf like
+
+ cvspserver stream tcp nowait nobody git-cvsserver pserver
+
+ Note: In some cases, you need to pass the 'pserver' argument twice for
+ git-cvsserver to see it. So the line would look like
+
+ cvspserver stream tcp nowait nobody git-cvsserver pserver pserver
+
+ No special setup is needed for SSH access, other than having GIT tools
+ in the PATH. If you have clients that do not accept the CVS_SERVER
+ env variable, you can rename git-cvsserver to cvs.
+
+2. For each repo that you want accessible from CVS you need to edit config in
+ the repo and add the following section.
+
+ [gitcvs]
+ enabled=1
+ # optional for debugging
+ logfile=/path/to/logfile
+
+ Note: you need to ensure each user that is going to invoke git-cvsserver has
+ write access to the log file and to the git repository. When offering anon
+ access via pserver, this means that the nobody user should have write access
+ to at least the sqlite database at the root of the repository.
+
+3. On the client machine you need to set the following variables.
+ CVSROOT should be set as per normal, but the directory should point at the
+ appropriate git repo. For example:
+
+ For SSH access, CVS_SERVER should be set to git-cvsserver
+
+ Example:
+
+ export CVSROOT=:ext:user@server:/var/git/project.git
+ export CVS_SERVER=git-cvsserver
+
+4. For SSH clients that will make commits, make sure their .bashrc file
+ sets the GIT_AUTHOR and GIT_COMMITTER variables.
+
+5. Clients should now be able to check out the project. Use the CVS 'module'
+ name to indicate what GIT 'head' you want to check out. Example:
+
+ cvs co -d project-master master
+
+Eclipse CVS Client Notes
+------------------------
+
+To get a checkout with the Eclipse CVS client:
+
+1. Select "Create a new project -> From CVS checkout"
+2. Create a new location. See the notes below for details on how to choose the
+ right protocol.
+3. Browse the 'modules' available. It will give you a list of the heads in
+ the repository. You will not be able to browse the tree from there. Only
+ the heads.
+4. Pick 'HEAD' when it asks what branch/tag to check out. Untick the
+ "launch commit wizard" to avoid committing the .project file.
+
+Protocol notes: If you are using anonymous acces via pserver, just select that.
+Those using SSH access should choose the 'ext' protocol, and configure 'ext'
+access on the Preferences->Team->CVS->ExtConnection pane. Set CVS_SERVER to
+'git-cvsserver'. Not that password support is not good when using 'ext',
+you will definitely want to have SSH keys setup.
+
+Alternatively, you can just use the non-standard extssh protocol that Eclipse
+offer. In that case CVS_SERVER is ignored, and you will have to replace
+the cvs utility on the server with git-cvsserver or manipulate your .bashrc
+so that calling 'cvs' effectively calls git-cvsserver.
+
+Clients known to work
+---------------------
+
+CVS 1.12.9 on Debian
+CVS 1.11.17 on MacOSX (from Fink package)
+Eclipse 3.0, 3.1.2 on MacOSX (see Eclipse CVS Client Notes)
+TortoiseCVS
+
+Operations supported
+--------------------
+
+All the operations required for normal use are supported, including
+checkout, diff, status, update, log, add, remove, commit.
+Legacy monitoring operations are not supported (edit, watch and related).
+Exports and tagging (tags and branches) are not supported at this stage.
+
+The server will set the -k mode to binary when relevant. In proper GIT
+tradition, the contents of the files are always respected.
+No keyword expansion or newline munging is supported.
+
+Dependencies
+------------
+
+git-cvsserver depends on DBD::SQLite.

+=============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-daemon - A really simple server for git repositories
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-daemon' [--verbose] [--syslog] [--inetd | --port=n] [--export-all]
+ [--timeout=n] [--init-timeout=n] [--strict-paths]
+ [--base-path=path] [--user-path | --user-path=path]
+ [directory...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+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 (unless the '--export-all' parameter is specified). If you
+pass some directory paths as 'git-daemon' arguments, you can further restrict
+the offers to a whitelist comprising of those.
+
+This is ideally suited for read-only updates, ie pulling from git repositories.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--strict-paths::
+ Match paths exactly (i.e. don't allow "/foo/repo" when the real path is
+ "/foo/repo.git" or "/foo/repo/.git") and don't do user-relative paths.
+ git-daemon will refuse to start when this option is enabled and no
+ whitelist is specified.
+
+--base-path::
+ Remap all the path requests as relative to the given path.
+ This is sort of "GIT root" - if you run git-daemon with
+ '--base-path=/srv/git' on example.com, then if you later try to pull
+ 'git://example.com/hello.git', `git-daemon` will interpret the path
+ as '/srv/git/hello.git'.
+
+--export-all::
+ Allow pulling from all directories that look like GIT repositories
+ (have the 'objects' and 'refs' subdirectories), even if they
+ do not have the 'git-daemon-export-ok' file.
+
+--inetd::
+ Have the server run as an inetd service. Implies --syslog.
+
+--port::
+ Listen on an alternative port.
+
+--init-timeout::
+ Timeout between the moment the connection is established and the
+ client request is received (typically a rather low value, since
+ that should be basically immediate).
+
+--timeout::
+ Timeout for specific client sub-requests. This includes the time
+ it takes for the server to process the sub-request and time spent
+ waiting for next client's request.
+
+--syslog::
+ Log to syslog instead of stderr. Note that this option does not imply
+ --verbose, thus by default only error conditions will be logged.
+
+--user-path, --user-path=path::
+ Allow ~user notation to be used in requests. When
+ specified with no parameter, requests to
+ git://host/~alice/foo is taken as a request to access
+ 'foo' repository in the home directory of user `alice`.
+ If `--user-path=path` is specified, the same request is
+ taken as a request to access `path/foo` repository in
+ the home directory of user `alice`.
+
+--verbose::
+ Log details about the incoming connections and requested files.
+
+<directory>::
+ A directory to add to the whitelist of allowed directories. Unless
+ --strict-paths is specified this will also include subdirectories
+ of each named directory.

+===============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-describe - Show the most recent tag that is reachable from a commit
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-describe' [--all] [--tags] [--abbrev=<n>] <committish>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The command finds the most recent tag that is reachable from a
+commit, and if the commit itself is pointed at by the tag, shows
+the tag. Otherwise, it suffixes the tag name with abbreviated
+object name of the commit.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<committish>::
+ The object name of the comittish.
+
+--all::
+ Instead of using only the annotated tags, use any ref
+ found in `.git/refs/`.
+
+--tags::
+ Instead of using only the annotated tags, use any tag
+ found in `.git/refs/tags`.
+
+--abbrev=<n>::
+ Instead of using the default 8 hexadecimal digits as the
+ abbreviated object name, use <n> digits.
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+With something like git.git current tree, I get:
+
+ [torvalds@g5 git]$ git-describe parent
+ v1.0.4-g2414721b
+
+i.e. the current head of my "parent" branch is based on v1.0.4,
+but since it has a few commits on top of that, it has added the
+git hash of the thing to the end: "-g" + 8-char shorthand for
+the commit `2414721b194453f058079d897d13c4e377f92dc6`.
+
+Doing a "git-describe" on a tag-name will just show the tag name:
+
+ [torvalds@g5 git]$ git-describe v1.0.4
+ v1.0.4
+
+With --all, the command can use branch heads as references, so
+the output shows the reference path as well:
+
+ [torvalds@g5 git]$ git describe --all --abbrev=4 v1.0.5^2
+ tags/v1.0.0-g975b
+
+ [torvalds@g5 git]$ git describe --all HEAD^
+ heads/lt/describe-g975b

+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Compares the files in the working tree and the index. When paths

+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+include::diff-options.txt[]
+
+-1 -2 -3 or --base --ours --theirs, and -0::
+ Diff against the "base" version, "our branch" or "their
+ branch" respectively. With these options, diffs for
+ merged entries are not shown.
++
+The default is to diff against our branch (-2) and the
+cleanly resolved paths. The option -0 can be given to
+omit diff output for unmerged entries and just show "Unmerged".
+
+-c,--cc::
+ This compares stage 2 (our branch), stage 3 (their
+ branch) and the working tree file and outputs a combined
+ diff, similar to the way 'diff-tree' shows a merge
+ commit with these flags.
+
+-q::
+ Remain silent even on nonexisting files

+git-diff-index(1)
+=================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-diff-index - Compares content and mode of blobs between the index and repository
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-diff-index' [-m] [--cached] [<common diff options>] <tree-ish> [<path>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Compares the content and mode of the blobs found via a tree
+object with the content of the current index and, optionally
+ignoring the stat state of the file on disk. When paths are
+specified, compares only those named paths. Otherwise all
+entries in the index are compared.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+include::diff-options.txt[]
+
+<tree-ish>::
+ The id of a tree object to diff against.
+
+--cached::
+ do not consider the on-disk file at all
+
+-m::
+ By default, files recorded in the index but not checked
+ out are reported as deleted. This flag makes
+ "git-diff-index" say that all non-checked-out files are up
+ to date.
+
+Output format
+-------------
+include::diff-format.txt[]
+
+Operating Modes
+---------------
+You can choose whether you want to trust the index file entirely
+(using the '--cached' flag) or ask the diff logic to show any files
+that don't match the stat state as being "tentatively changed". Both
+of these operations are very useful indeed.
+
+Cached Mode
+-----------
+If '--cached' is specified, it allows you to ask:
+
+ show me the differences between HEAD and the current index
+ contents (the ones I'd write with a "git-write-tree")
+
+For example, let's say that you have worked on your working directory, updated
+some files in the index and are ready to commit. You want to see exactly
+*what* you are going to commit is without having to write a new tree
+object and compare it that way, and to do that, you just do
+
+ git-diff-index --cached HEAD
+
+Example: let's say I had renamed `commit.c` to `git-commit.c`, and I had
+done an "git-update-index" to make that effective in the index file.
+"git-diff-files" wouldn't show anything at all, since the index file
+matches my working directory. But doing a "git-diff-index" does:
+
+ torvalds@ppc970:~/git> git-diff-index --cached HEAD
+ -100644 blob 4161aecc6700a2eb579e842af0b7f22b98443f74 commit.c
+ +100644 blob 4161aecc6700a2eb579e842af0b7f22b98443f74 git-commit.c
+
+You can trivially see that the above is a rename.
+
+In fact, "git-diff-index --cached" *should* always be entirely equivalent to
+actually doing a "git-write-tree" and comparing that. Except this one is much
+nicer for the case where you just want to check where you are.
+
+So doing a "git-diff-index --cached" is basically very useful when you are
+asking yourself "what have I already marked for being committed, and
+what's the difference to a previous tree".
+
+Non-cached Mode
+---------------
+The "non-cached" mode takes a different approach, and is potentially
+the more useful of the two in that what it does can't be emulated with
+a "git-write-tree" + "git-diff-tree". Thus that's the default mode.
+The non-cached version asks the question:
+
+ show me the differences between HEAD and the currently checked out
+ tree - index contents _and_ files that aren't up-to-date
+
+which is obviously a very useful question too, since that tells you what
+you *could* commit. Again, the output matches the "git-diff-tree -r"
+output to a tee, but with a twist.
+
+The twist is that if some file doesn't match the index, we don't have
+a backing store thing for it, and we use the magic "all-zero" sha1 to
+show that. So let's say that you have edited `kernel/sched.c`, but
+have not actually done a "git-update-index" on it yet - there is no
+"object" associated with the new state, and you get:
+
+ torvalds@ppc970:~/v2.6/linux> git-diff-index HEAD
+ *100644->100664 blob 7476bb......->000000...... kernel/sched.c
+
+ie it shows that the tree has changed, and that `kernel/sched.c` has is
+not up-to-date and may contain new stuff. The all-zero sha1 means that to
+get the real diff, you need to look at the object in the working directory
+directly rather than do an object-to-object diff.
+
+NOTE: As with other commands of this type, "git-diff-index" does not
+actually look at the contents of the file at all. So maybe
+`kernel/sched.c` hasn't actually changed, and it's just that you
+touched it. In either case, it's a note that you need to
+"git-update-index" it to make the index be in sync.
+
+NOTE: You can have a mixture of files show up as "has been updated"
+and "is still dirty in the working directory" together. You can always
+tell which file is in which state, since the "has been updated" ones
+show a valid sha1, and the "not in sync with the index" ones will
+always have the special all-zero sha1.

+================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-diff-tree - Compares the content and mode of blobs found via two tree objects
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-diff-tree' [--stdin] [-m] [-s] [-v] [--no-commit-id] [--pretty]
+ [-t] [-r] [-c | --cc] [--root] [<common diff options>]
+ <tree-ish> [<tree-ish>] [<path>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Compares the content and mode of the blobs found via two tree objects.
+
+If there is only one <tree-ish> given, the commit is compared with its parents
+(see --stdin below).
+
+Note that "git-diff-tree" can use the tree encapsulated in a commit object.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+include::diff-options.txt[]
+
+<tree-ish>::
+ The id of a tree object.
+
+<path>...::
+ If provided, the results are limited to a subset of files
+ matching one of these prefix strings.
+ ie file matches `/^<pattern1>|<pattern2>|.../`
+ Note that this parameter does not provide any wildcard or regexp
+ features.
+
+-r::
+ recurse into sub-trees
+
+-t::
+ show tree entry itself as well as subtrees. Implies -r.
+
+--root::
+ When '--root' is specified the initial commit will be showed as a big
+ creation event. This is equivalent to a diff against the NULL tree.
+
+--stdin::
+ When '--stdin' is specified, the command does not take
+ <tree-ish> arguments from the command line. Instead, it
+ reads either one <commit> or a pair of <tree-ish>
+ separated with a single space from its standard input.
++
+When a single commit is given on one line of such input, it compares
+the commit with its parents. The following flags further affects its
+behaviour. This does not apply to the case where two <tree-ish>
+separated with a single space are given.
+
+-m::
+ By default, "git-diff-tree --stdin" does not show
+ differences for merge commits. With this flag, it shows
+ differences to that commit from all of its parents. See
+ also '-c'.
+
+-s::
+ By default, "git-diff-tree --stdin" shows differences,
+ either in machine-readable form (without '-p') or in patch
+ form (with '-p'). This output can be suppressed. It is
+ only useful with '-v' flag.
+
+-v::
+ This flag causes "git-diff-tree --stdin" to also show
+ the commit message before the differences.
+
+--pretty[=(raw|medium|short)]::
+ This is used to control "pretty printing" format of the
+ commit message. Without "=<style>", it defaults to
+ medium.
+
+--no-commit-id::
+ git-diff-tree outputs a line with the commit ID when
+ applicable. This flag suppressed the commit ID output.
+
+-c::
+ This flag changes the way a merge commit is displayed
+ (which means it is useful only when the command is given
+ one <tree-ish>, or '--stdin'). It shows the differences
+ from each of the parents to the merge result simultaneously
+ instead of showing pairwise diff between a parent and the
+ result one at a time (which is what the '-m' option does).
+ Furthermore, it lists only files which were modified
+ from all parents.
+
+-cc::
+ This flag changes the way a merge commit patch is displayed,
+ in a similar way to the '-c' option. It implies the '-c'
+ and '-p' options and further compresses the patch output
+ by omitting hunks that show differences from only one
+ parent, or show the same change from all but one parent
+ for an Octopus merge. When this optimization makes all
+ hunks disappear, the commit itself and the commit log
+ message is not shown, just like in any other "empty diff" case.
+
+--always::
+ Show the commit itself and the commit log message even
+ if the diff itself is empty.
+
+
+Limiting Output
+---------------
+If you're only interested in differences in a subset of files, for
+example some architecture-specific files, you might do:
+
+ git-diff-tree -r <tree-ish> <tree-ish> arch/ia64 include/asm-ia64
+
+and it will only show you what changed in those two directories.
+
+Or if you are searching for what changed in just `kernel/sched.c`, just do
+
+ git-diff-tree -r <tree-ish> <tree-ish> kernel/sched.c
+
+and it will ignore all differences to other files.
+
+The pattern is always the prefix, and is matched exactly. There are no
+wildcards. Even stricter, it has to match a complete path component.
+I.e. "foo" does not pick up `foobar.h`. "foo" does match `foo/bar.h`
+so it can be used to name subdirectories.
+
+An example of normal usage is:
+
+ torvalds@ppc970:~/git> git-diff-tree 5319e4......
+ *100664->100664 blob ac348b.......->a01513....... git-fsck-objects.c
+
+which tells you that the last commit changed just one file (it's from
+this one:

+===========
+
+NAME
+----
+git-diff - Show changes between commits, commit and working tree, etc
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-diff' [ --diff-options ] <ent>{0,2} [<path>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Show changes between two ents, an ent and the working tree, an
+ent and the index file, or the index file and the working tree.
+The combination of what is compared with what is determined by
+the number of ents given to the command.
+
+* When no <ent> is given, the working tree and the index
+ file is compared, using `git-diff-files`.
+
+* When one <ent> is given, the working tree and the named
+ tree is compared, using `git-diff-index`. The option
+ `--cached` can be given to compare the index file and
+ the named tree.
+
+* When two <ent>s are given, these two trees are compared
+ using `git-diff-tree`.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--diff-options::
+ '--diff-options' are passed to the `git-diff-files`,
+ `git-diff-index`, and `git-diff-tree` commands. See the
+ documentation for these commands for description.
+
+<path>...::
+ The <path> arguments are also passed to `git-diff-\*`
+ commands.
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+Various ways to check your working tree::
++
+------------
+$ git diff <1>
+$ git diff --cached <2>
+$ git diff HEAD <3>

+git-fetch-pack(1)
+=================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-fetch-pack - Receive missing objects from another repository
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-fetch-pack' [-q] [-k] [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory> [<refs>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Invokes 'git-upload-pack' on a potentially remote repository,
+and asks it to send objects missing from this repository, to
+update the named heads. The list of commits available locally
+is found out by scanning local $GIT_DIR/refs/ and sent to
+'git-upload-pack' running on the other end.
+
+This command degenerates to download everything to complete the
+asked refs from the remote side when the local side does not
+have a common ancestor commit.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-q::
+ Pass '-q' flag to 'git-unpack-objects'; this makes the
+ cloning process less verbose.
+
+-k::
+ Do not invoke 'git-unpack-objects' on received data, but
+ create a single packfile out of it instead, and store it
+ in the object database.
+
+--exec=<git-upload-pack>::
+ 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).
+
+<host>::
+ A remote host that houses the repository. When this
+ part is specified, 'git-upload-pack' is invoked via
+ ssh.
+
+<directory>::
+ The repository to sync from.
+
+<refs>...::
+ The remote heads to update from. This is relative to
+ $GIT_DIR (e.g. "HEAD", "refs/heads/master"). When
+ unspecified, update from all heads the remote side has.

+git-format-patch(1)
+===================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-format-patch - Prepare patches for e-mail submission
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-format-patch' [-n | -k] [-o <dir> | --stdout] [--attach] [-s] [-c]
+ [--diff-options] <his> [<mine>]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Prepare each commit with its patch since <mine> head forked from
+<his> head, one file per patch formatted to resemble UNIX mailbox
+format, for e-mail submission or use with gitlink:git-am[1].
+
+Each output file is numbered sequentially from 1, and uses the
+first line of the commit message (massaged for pathname safety)
+as the filename.
+
+When -o is specified, output files are created in <dir>; otherwise
+they are created in the current working directory. This option
+is ignored if --stdout is specified.
+
+When -n is specified, instead of "[PATCH] Subject", the first
+line is formatted as "[PATCH N/M] Subject", unless you have only
+one patch.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-o|--output-directory <dir>::
+ Use <dir> to store the resulting files, instead of the
+ current working directory.
+
+-n|--numbered::
+ Name output in '[PATCH n/m]' format.
+
+-k|--keep-subject::
+ Do not strip/add '[PATCH]' from the first line of the
+ commit log message.
+
+-s|--signoff::
+ Add `Signed-off-by:` line to the commit message, using
+ the committer identity of yourself.
+
+-c|--check::
+ Display suspicious lines in the patch. The definition
+ of 'suspicious lines' is currently the lines that has
+ trailing whitespaces, and the lines whose indentation
+ has a SP character immediately followed by a TAB
+ character.
+
+--stdout::
+ This flag generates the mbox formatted output to the
+ standard output, instead of saving them into a file per
+ patch and implies --mbox.
+
+--attach::
+ Create attachments instead of inlining patches.
+
+
+CONFIGURATION
+-------------
+You can specify extra mail header lines to be added to each
+message in the repository configuration as follows:
+
+[format]
+ headers = "Organization: git-foo\n"
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+git-format-patch -k --stdout R1..R2 | git-am -3 -k::
+ Extract commits between revisions R1 and R2, and apply
+ them on top of the current branch using `git-am` to
+ cherry-pick them.
+
+git-format-patch origin::
+ Extract commits the current branch accumulated since it
+ pulled from origin the last time in a patch form for
+ e-mail submission.
+
+git-format-patch -M -B origin::
+ The same as the previous one, except detect and handle
+ renames and complete rewrites intelligently to produce
+ renaming patch. A renaming patch reduces the amount of
+ text output, and generally makes it easier to review
+ it. Note that the "patch" program does not understand
+ renaming patch well, so use it only when you know the
+ recipient uses git to apply your patch.

+git-fsck-objects(1)
+===================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-fsck-objects - Verifies the connectivity and validity of the objects in the database
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-fsck-objects' [--tags] [--root] [--unreachable] [--cache]
+ [--full] [--strict] [<object>*]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Verifies the connectivity and validity of the objects in the database.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<object>::
+ An object to treat as the head of an unreachability trace.
++
+If no objects are given, git-fsck-objects defaults to using the
+index file and all SHA1 references in .git/refs/* as heads.
+
+--unreachable::
+ Print out objects that exist but that aren't readable from any
+ of the reference nodes.
+
+--root::
+ Report root nodes.
+
+--tags::
+ Report tags.
+
+--cache::
+ Consider any object recorded in the index also as a head node for
+ an unreachability trace.
+
+--full::
+ Check not just objects in GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY
+ ($GIT_DIR/objects), but also the ones found in alternate
+ object pools listed in GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES
+ or $GIT_DIR/objects/info/alternates,
+ and in packed git archives found in $GIT_DIR/objects/pack
+ and corresponding pack subdirectories in alternate
+ object pools.
+
+--strict::
+ Enable more strict checking, namely to catch a file mode
+ recorded with g+w bit set, which was created by older
+ versions of git. Existing repositories, including the
+ Linux kernel, git itself, and sparse repository have old
+ objects that triggers this check, but it is recommended
+ to check new projects with this flag.
+
+It tests SHA1 and general object sanity, and it does full tracking of
+the resulting reachability and everything else. It prints out any
+corruption it finds (missing or bad objects), and if you use the
+'--unreachable' flag it will also print out objects that exist but
+that aren't readable from any of the specified head nodes.
+
+So for example
+
+ git-fsck-objects --unreachable HEAD $(cat .git/refs/heads/*)
+
+will do quite a _lot_ of verification on the tree. There are a few
+extra validity tests to be added (make sure that tree objects are
+sorted properly etc), but on the whole if "git-fsck-objects" is happy, you
+do have a valid tree.
+
+Any corrupt objects you will have to find in backups or other archives
+(ie you can just remove them and do an "rsync" with some other site in
+the hopes that somebody else has the object you have corrupted).
+
+Of course, "valid tree" doesn't mean that it wasn't generated by some
+evil person, and the end result might be crap. git is a revision
+tracking system, not a quality assurance system ;)
+
+Extracted Diagnostics
+---------------------
+
+expect dangling commits - potential heads - due to lack of head information::
+ You haven't specified any nodes as heads so it won't be
+ possible to differentiate between un-parented commits and
+ root nodes.
+
+missing sha1 directory '<dir>'::
+ The directory holding the sha1 objects is missing.
+
+unreachable <type> <object>::
+ The <type> object <object>, isn't actually referred to directly
+ or indirectly in any of the trees or commits seen. This can
+ mean that there's another root node that you're not specifying
+ or that the tree is corrupt. If you haven't missed a root node
+ then you might as well delete unreachable nodes since they
+ can't be used.
+
+missing <type> <object>::
+ The <type> object <object>, is referred to but isn't present in
+ the database.
+
+dangling <type> <object>::
+ The <type> object <object>, is present in the database but never
+ 'directly' used. A dangling commit could be a root node.
+
+warning: git-fsck-objects: tree <tree> has full pathnames in it::
+ And it shouldn't...
+
+sha1 mismatch <object>::
+ The database has an object who's sha1 doesn't match the
+ database value.
+ This indicates a serious data integrity problem.
+
+Environment Variables
+---------------------
+
+GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY::
+ used to specify the object database root (usually $GIT_DIR/objects)
+
+GIT_INDEX_FILE::
+ used to specify the index file of the index
+
+GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES::
+ used to specify additional object database roots (usually unset)

+git-get-tar-commit-id - Extract commit ID from an archive created using git-tar-tree
+

+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-get-tar-commit-id' < <tarfile>

+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Acts as a filter, extracting the commit ID stored in archives created by
+git-tar-tree. It reads only the first 1024 bytes of input, thus its
+runtime is not influenced by the size of <tarfile> very much.
+
+If no commit ID is found, git-get-tar-commit-id quietly exists with a
+return code of 1. This can happen if <tarfile> had not been created
+using git-tar-tree or if the first parameter of git-tar-tree had been
+a tree ID instead of a commit ID or tag.

+NAME

+git-http-push - Push missing objects using HTTP/DAV
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-http-push' [--complete] [--force] [--verbose] <url> <ref> [<ref>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Sends missing objects to remote repository, and updates the
+remote branch.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--complete::
+ Do not assume that the remote repository is complete in its
+ current state, and verify all objects in the entire local
+ ref's history exist in the remote repository.
+
+--force::
+ Usually, the command refuses to update a remote ref that
+ is not an ancestor of the local ref used to overwrite it.
+ This flag disables the check. What this means is that
+ the remote repository can lose commits; use it with
+ care.
+
+--verbose::
+ Report the list of objects being walked locally and the
+ list of objects successfully sent to the remote repository.
+
+<ref>...:
+ The remote refs to update.
+
+
+Specifying the Refs
+-------------------
+
+A '<ref>' specification can be either a single pattern, or a pair
+of such patterns separated by a colon ":" (this means that a ref name
+cannot have a colon in it). A single pattern '<name>' is just a
+shorthand for '<name>:<name>'.
+
+Each pattern pair consists of the source side (before the colon)
+and the destination side (after the colon). The ref to be
+pushed is determined by finding a match that matches the source
+side, and where it is pushed is determined by using the
+destination side.
+
+ - It is an error if <src> does not match exactly one of the
+ local refs.
+
+ - If <dst> does not match any remote ref, either
+
+ * it has to start with "refs/"; <dst> is used as the
+ destination literally in this case.
+
+ * <src> == <dst> and the ref that matched the <src> must not
+ exist in the set of remote refs; the ref matched <src>
+ locally is used as the name of the destination.
+
+Without '--force', the <src> ref is stored at the remote only if
+<dst> does not exist, or <dst> is a proper subset (i.e. an
+ancestor) of <src>. This check, known as "fast forward check",
+is performed in order to avoid accidentally overwriting the
+remote ref and lose other peoples' commits from there.
+
+With '--force', the fast forward check is disabled for all refs.
+
+Optionally, a <ref> parameter can be prefixed with a plus '+' sign
+to disable the fast-forward check only on that ref.

+NAME
+----
+git-index-pack - Build pack index file for an existing packed archive
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-index-pack' [-o <index-file>] <pack-file>
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Reads a packed archive (.pack) from the specified file, and
+builds a pack index file (.idx) for it. The packed archive
+together with the pack index can then be placed in the
+objects/pack/ directory of a git repository.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-o <index-file>::
+ Write the generated pack index into the specified
+ file. Without this option the name of pack index
+ file is constructed from the name of packed archive
+ file by replacing .pack with .idx (and the program
+ fails if the name of packed archive does not end
+ with .pack).

+==============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-init-db - Creates an empty git repository
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-init-db' [--template=<template_directory>] [--shared]
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--template=<template_directory>::
+ Provide the directory from which templates will be used.
+ The default template directory is `/usr/share/git-core/templates`.
+
+--shared::
+ Specify that the git repository is to be shared amongst several users.
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This command creates an empty git repository - basically a `.git` directory
+with subdirectories for `objects`, `refs/heads`, `refs/tags`, and
+templated files.
+An initial `HEAD` file that references the HEAD of the master branch
+is also created.
+
+If `--template=<template_directory>` is specified, `<template_directory>`
+is used as the source of the template files rather than the default.
+The template files include some directory structure, some suggested
+"exclude patterns", and copies of non-executing "hook" files. The
+suggested patterns and hook files are all modifiable and extensible.
+
+If the `$GIT_DIR` environment variable is set then it specifies a path
+to use instead of `./.git` for the base of the repository.
+
+If the object storage directory is specified via the `$GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY`
+environment variable then the sha1 directories are created underneath -
+otherwise the default `$GIT_DIR/objects` directory is used.
+
+A shared repository allows users belonging to the same group to push into that
+repository. When specifying `--shared` the config variable "core.sharedRepository"
+is set to 'true' so that directories under `$GIT_DIR` are made group writable
+(and g+sx, since the git group may be not the primary group of all users).
+
+Running `git-init-db` in an existing repository is safe. It will not overwrite
+things that are already there. The primary reason for rerunning `git-init-db`
+is to pick up newly added templates.
+
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+Start a new git repository for an existing code base::
++
+----------------
+$ cd /path/to/my/codebase
+$ git-init-db <1>
+$ git-add . <2>
+
+<1> prepare /path/to/my/codebase/.git directory
+<2> add all existing file to the index

+git-log - Show commit logs
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-log' <option>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Shows the commit logs.
+
+The command takes options applicable to the gitlink::git-rev-list[1]
+command to control what is shown and how, and options applicable to
+the gitlink::git-diff-tree[1] commands to control how the change
+each commit introduces are shown.
+
+This manual page describes only the most frequently used
+options.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--pretty=<format>::
+ Controls the way the commit log is formatted.
+
+--max-count=<n>::
+ Limits the number of commits to show.
+
+<since>..<until>::
+ Show only commits between the named two commits.
+
+-p::
+ Show the change the commit introduces in a patch form.
+
+<paths>...::
+ Show only commits that affect the specified paths.
+
+
+Examples
+--------
+git log --no-merges::
+
+ Show the whole commit history, but skip any merges
+
+git log v2.6.12.. include/scsi drivers/scsi::
+
+ Show all commits since version 'v2.6.12' that changed any file
+ in the include/scsi or drivers/scsi subdirectories
+
+git log --since="2 weeks ago" -- gitk::
+
+ Show the changes during the last two weeks to the file 'gitk'.
+ The "--" is necessary to avoid confusion with the *branch* named
+ 'gitk'
+
+git log -r --name-status release..test::
+
+ Show the commits that are in the "test" branch but not yet
+ in the "release" branch, along with the list of paths
+ each commit modifies.

+git-lost-found(1)
+=================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-lost-found - Recover lost refs that luckily have not yet been pruned
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-lost-found'
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Finds dangling commits and tags from the object database, and
+creates refs to them in .git/lost-found/ directory. Commits and
+tags that dereference to commits go to .git/lost-found/commit
+and others are stored in .git/lost-found/other directory.
+
+
+OUTPUT
+------
+One line description from the commit and tag found along with
+their object name are printed on the standard output.
+
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+
+Suppose you run 'git tag -f' and mistyped the tag to overwrite.
+The ref to your tag is overwritten, but until you run 'git
+prune', it is still there.
+
+------------
+$ git lost-found
+[1ef2b196d909eed523d4f3c9bf54b78cdd6843c6] GIT 0.99.9c
+...
+------------
+
+Also you can use gitk to browse how they relate to each other
+and existing (probably old) tags.
+
+------------
+$ gitk $(cd .git/lost-found/commit && echo ??*)
+------------
+
+After making sure that it is the object you are looking for, you
+can reconnect it to your regular .git/refs hierarchy.
+
+------------
+$ git cat-file -t 1ef2b196
+tag
+$ git cat-file tag 1ef2b196
+object fa41bbce8e38c67a218415de6cfa510c7e50032a

+git-ls-files(1)
+===============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-ls-files - Information about files in the index/working directory
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-ls-files' [-z] [-t] [-v]
+ (--[cached|deleted|others|ignored|stage|unmerged|killed|modified])\*
+ (-[c|d|o|i|s|u|k|m])\*
+ [-x <pattern>|--exclude=<pattern>]
+ [-X <file>|--exclude-from=<file>]
+ [--exclude-per-directory=<file>]
+ [--error-unmatch]
+ [--full-name] [--abbrev] [--] [<file>]\*
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This merges the file listing in the directory cache index with the
+actual working directory list, and shows different combinations of the
+two.
+
+One or more of the options below may be used to determine the files
+shown:
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-c|--cached::
+ Show cached files in the output (default)
+
+-d|--deleted::
+ Show deleted files in the output
+
+-m|--modified::
+ Show modified files in the output
+
+-o|--others::
+ Show other files in the output
+
+-i|--ignored::
+ Show ignored files in the output
+ Note the this also reverses any exclude list present.
+
+-s|--stage::
+ Show stage files in the output
+
+--directory::
+ If a whole directory is classified as "other", show just its
+ name (with a trailing slash) and not its whole contents.
+
+--no-empty-directory::
+ Do not list empty directories. Has no effect without --directory.
+
+-u|--unmerged::
+ Show unmerged files in the output (forces --stage)
+
+-k|--killed::
+ Show files on the filesystem that need to be removed due
+ to file/directory conflicts for checkout-index to
+ succeed.
+
+-z::
+ \0 line termination on output.
+
+-x|--exclude=<pattern>::
+ Skips files matching pattern.
+ Note that pattern is a shell wildcard pattern.
+
+-X|--exclude-from=<file>::
+ exclude patterns are read from <file>; 1 per line.
+
+--exclude-per-directory=<file>::
+ read additional exclude patterns that apply only to the
+ directory and its subdirectories in <file>.
+
+--error-unmatch::
+ If any <file> does not appear in the index, treat this as an
+ error (return 1).
+
+-t::
+ Identify the file status with the following tags (followed by
+ a space) at the start of each line:
+ H:: cached
+ M:: unmerged
+ R:: removed/deleted
+ C:: modified/changed
+ K:: to be killed
+ ?:: other
+
+-v::
+ Similar to `-t`, but use lowercase letters for files
+ that are marked as 'always matching index'.
+
+--full-name::
+ When run from a subdirectory, the command usually
+ outputs paths relative to the current directory. This
+ option forces paths to be output relative to the project
+ top directory.
+
+--abbrev[=<n>]::
+ Instead of showing the full 40-byte hexadecimal object
+ lines, show only handful hexdigits prefix.
+ Non default number of digits can be specified with --abbrev=<n>.
+
+--::
+ Do not interpret any more arguments as options.
+
+<file>::
+ Files to show. If no files are given all files which match the other
+ specified criteria are shown.
+
+Output
+------
+show files just outputs the filename unless '--stage' is specified in
+which case it outputs:
+
+ [<tag> ]<mode> <object> <stage> <file>
+
+"git-ls-files --unmerged" and "git-ls-files --stage" can be used to examine
+detailed information on unmerged paths.
+
+For an unmerged path, instead of recording a single mode/SHA1 pair,
+the dircache records up to three such pairs; one from tree O in stage
+1, A in stage 2, and B in stage 3. This information can be used by
+the user (or the porcelain) to see what should eventually be recorded at the
+path. (see git-read-tree for more information on state)
+
+When `-z` option is not used, TAB, LF, and backslash characters
+in pathnames are represented as `\t`, `\n`, and `\\`,
+respectively.
+
+
+Exclude Patterns
+----------------
+
+'git-ls-files' can use a list of "exclude patterns" when
+traversing the directory tree and finding files to show when the
+flags --others or --ignored are specified.
+
+These exclude patterns come from these places:
+
+ 1. command line flag --exclude=<pattern> specifies a single
+ pattern.
+
+ 2. command line flag --exclude-from=<file> specifies a list of
+ patterns stored in a file.
+
+ 3. command line flag --exclude-per-directory=<name> specifies
+ a name of the file in each directory 'git-ls-files'
+ examines, and if exists, its contents are used as an
+ additional list of patterns.
+
+An exclude pattern file used by (2) and (3) contains one pattern
+per line. A line that starts with a '#' can be used as comment
+for readability.
+
+There are three lists of patterns that are in effect at a given
+time. They are built and ordered in the following way:
+
+ * --exclude=<pattern> from the command line; patterns are
+ ordered in the same order as they appear on the command line.
+
+ * lines read from --exclude-from=<file>; patterns are ordered
+ in the same order as they appear in the file.
+
+ * When --exclude-per-directory=<name> is specified, upon
+ entering a directory that has such a file, its contents are
+ appended at the end of the current "list of patterns". They
+ are popped off when leaving the directory.
+
+Each pattern in the pattern list specifies "a match pattern" and
+optionally the fate; either a file that matches the pattern is
+considered excluded or included. A filename is matched against
+the patterns in the three lists; the --exclude-from list is
+checked first, then the --exclude-per-directory list, and then
+finally the --exclude list. The last match determines its fate.
+If there is no match in the three lists, the fate is "included".
+
+A pattern specified on the command line with --exclude or read
+from the file specified with --exclude-from is relative to the
+top of the directory tree. A pattern read from a file specified
+by --exclude-per-directory is relative to the directory that the
+pattern file appears in.
+
+An exclude pattern is of the following format:
+
+ - an optional prefix '!' which means that the fate this pattern
+ specifies is "include", not the usual "exclude"; the
+ remainder of the pattern string is interpreted according to
+ the following rules.
+
+ - if it does not contain a slash '/', it is a shell glob
+ pattern and used to match against the filename without
+ leading directories (i.e. the same way as the current
+ implementation).
+
+ - otherwise, it is a shell glob pattern, suitable for
+ consumption by fnmatch(3) with FNM_PATHNAME flag. I.e. a
+ slash in the pattern must match a slash in the pathname.
+ "Documentation/\*.html" matches "Documentation/git.html" but
+ not "ppc/ppc.html". As a natural exception, "/*.c" matches
+ "cat-file.c" but not "mozilla-sha1/sha1.c".
+
+An example:
+
+--------------------------------------------------------------
+ $ cat .git/ignore
+ # ignore objects and archives, anywhere in the tree.
+ *.[oa]
+ $ cat Documentation/.gitignore
+ # ignore generated html files,
+ *.html
+ # except foo.html which is maintained by hand
+ !foo.html
+ $ git-ls-files --ignored \
+ --exclude='Documentation/*.[0-9]' \
+ --exclude-from=.git/ignore \
+ --exclude-per-directory=.gitignore

+NAME

+git-ls-tree - Lists the contents of a tree object
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-ls-tree' [-d] [-r] [-t] [-z]
+ [--name-only] [--name-status] [--full-name] [--abbrev=[<n>]]
+ <tree-ish> [paths...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Lists the contents of a given tree object, like what "/bin/ls -a" does
+in the current working directory. Note that the usage is subtly different,
+though - 'paths' denote just a list of patterns to match, e.g. so specifying
+directory name (without '-r') will behave differently, and order of the
+arguments does not matter.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<tree-ish>::
+ Id of a tree-ish.
+
+-d::
+ Show only the named tree entry itself, not its children.
+
+-r::
+ Recurse into sub-trees.
+
+-t::
+ Show tree entries even when going to recurse them. Has no effect
+ if '-r' was not passed. '-d' implies '-t'.
+
+-z::
+ \0 line termination on output.
+
+--name-only::
+--name-status::
+ List only filenames (instead of the "long" output), one per line.
+
+--abbrev[=<n>]::
+ Instead of showing the full 40-byte hexadecimal object
+ lines, show only handful hexdigits prefix.
+ Non default number of digits can be specified with --abbrev=<n>.
+
+paths::
+ When paths are given, show them (note that this isn't really raw
+ pathnames, but rather a list of patterns to match). Otherwise
+ implicitly uses the root level of the tree as the sole path argument.
+
+
+Output Format
+-------------
+ <mode> SP <type> SP <object> TAB <file>
+
+When the `-z` option is not used, TAB, LF, and backslash characters
+in pathnames are represented as `\t`, `\n`, and `\\`, respectively.

+git-mailinfo(1)
+===============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-mailinfo - Extracts patch from a single e-mail message
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-mailinfo' [-k] [-u | --encoding=<encoding>] <msg> <patch>
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Reading a single e-mail message from the standard input, and
+writes the commit log message in <msg> file, and the patches in
+<patch> file. The author name, e-mail and e-mail subject are
+written out to the standard output to be used by git-applypatch
+to create a commit. It is usually not necessary to use this
+command directly.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-k::
+ Usually the program 'cleans up' the Subject: header line
+ to extract the title line for the commit log message,
+ among which (1) remove 'Re:' or 're:', (2) leading
+ whitespaces, (3) '[' up to ']', typically '[PATCH]', and
+ then prepends "[PATCH] ". This flag forbids this
+ munging, and is most useful when used to read back 'git
+ format-patch --mbox' output.
+
+-u::
+ By default, the commit log message, author name and
+ author email are taken from the e-mail without any
+ charset conversion, after minimally decoding MIME
+ transfer encoding. This flag causes the resulting
+ commit to be encoded in the encoding specified by
+ i18n.commitencoding configuration (defaults to utf-8) by

+git-merge-index(1)
+==================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-merge-index - Runs a merge for files needing merging
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-merge-index' [-o] [-q] <merge-program> (-a | -- | <file>\*)
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This looks up the <file>(s) in the index and, if there are any merge
+entries, passes the SHA1 hash for those files as arguments 1, 2, 3 (empty
+argument if no file), and <file> as argument 4. File modes for the three
+files are passed as arguments 5, 6 and 7.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--::
+ Do not interpret any more arguments as options.
+
+-a::
+ Run merge against all files in the index that need merging.
+
+-o::
+ Instead of stopping at the first failed merge, do all of them
+ in one shot - continue with merging even when previous merges
+ returned errors, and only return the error code after all the
+ merges are over.
+
+-q::
+ Do not complain about failed merge program (the merge program
+ failure usually indicates conflicts during merge). This is for
+ porcelains which might want to emit custom messages.
+
+If "git-merge-index" is called with multiple <file>s (or -a) then it
+processes them in turn only stopping if merge returns a non-zero exit
+code.
+
+Typically this is run with the a script calling the merge command from
+the RCS package.
+
+A sample script called "git-merge-one-file" is included in the
+distribution.
+
+ALERT ALERT ALERT! The git "merge object order" is different from the
+RCS "merge" program merge object order. In the above ordering, the
+original is first. But the argument order to the 3-way merge program
+"merge" is to have the original in the middle. Don't ask me why.
+
+Examples:
+
+ torvalds@ppc970:~/merge-test> git-merge-index cat MM
+ This is MM from the original tree. # original
+ This is modified MM in the branch A. # merge1
+ This is modified MM in the branch B. # merge2
+ This is modified MM in the branch B. # current contents
+
+or
+
+ torvalds@ppc970:~/merge-test> git-merge-index cat AA MM
+ cat: : No such file or directory
+ This is added AA in the branch A.
+ This is added AA in the branch B.
+ This is added AA in the branch B.
+ fatal: merge program failed
+
+where the latter example shows how "git-merge-index" will stop trying to
+merge once anything has returned an error (ie "cat" returned an error
+for the AA file, because it didn't exist in the original, and thus
+"git-merge-index" didn't even try to merge the MM thing).

+
+<head>::

+

+
+include::merge-strategies.txt[]
+
+
+If you tried a merge which resulted in a complex conflicts and
+would want to start over, you can recover with
+gitlink:git-reset[1].
+
+
+HOW MERGE WORKS
+---------------
+
+A merge is always between the current `HEAD` and one or more
+remote branch heads, and the index file must exactly match the
+tree of `HEAD` commit (i.e. the contents of the last commit) when
+it happens. In other words, `git-diff --cached HEAD` must
+report no changes.
+
+[NOTE]
+This is a bit of lie. In certain special cases, your index are
+allowed to be different from the tree of `HEAD` commit. The most
+notable case is when your `HEAD` commit is already ahead of what
+is being merged, in which case your index can have arbitrary
+difference from your `HEAD` commit. Otherwise, your index entries
+are allowed have differences from your `HEAD` commit that match
+the result of trivial merge (e.g. you received the same patch
+from external source to produce the same result as what you are
+merging). For example, if a path did not exist in the common
+ancestor and your head commit but exists in the tree you are
+merging into your repository, and if you already happen to have
+that path exactly in your index, the merge does not have to
+fail.
+
+Otherwise, merge will refuse to do any harm to your repository
+(that is, it may fetch the objects from remote, and it may even
+update the local branch used to keep track of the remote branch
+with `git pull remote rbranch:lbranch`, but your working tree,
+`.git/HEAD` pointer and index file are left intact).
+
+You may have local modifications in the working tree files. In
+other words, `git-diff` is allowed to report changes.
+However, the merge uses your working tree as the working area,
+and in order to prevent the merge operation from losing such
+changes, it makes sure that they do not interfere with the
+merge. Those complex tables in read-tree documentation define
+what it means for a path to "interfere with the merge". And if
+your local modifications interfere with the merge, again, it
+stops before touching anything.
+
+So in the above two "failed merge" case, you do not have to
+worry about lossage of data --- you simply were not ready to do
+a merge, so no merge happened at all. You may want to finish
+whatever you were in the middle of doing, and retry the same
+pull after you are done and ready.
+
+When things cleanly merge, these things happen:
+
+1. the results are updated both in the index file and in your
+ working tree,
+2. index file is written out as a tree,
+3. the tree gets committed, and
+4. the `HEAD` pointer gets advanced.
+
+Because of 2., we require that the original state of the index
+file to match exactly the current `HEAD` commit; otherwise we
+will write out your local changes already registered in your
+index file along with the merge result, which is not good.
+Because 1. involves only the paths different between your
+branch and the remote branch you are pulling from during the
+merge (which is typically a fraction of the whole tree), you can
+have local modifications in your working tree as long as they do
+not overlap with what the merge updates.
+
+When there are conflicts, these things happen:
+
+1. `HEAD` stays the same.
+
+2. Cleanly merged paths are updated both in the index file and
+ in your working tree.
+
+3. For conflicting paths, the index file records up to three
+ versions; stage1 stores the version from the common ancestor,
+ stage2 from `HEAD`, and stage3 from the remote branch (you
+ can inspect the stages with `git-ls-files -u`). The working
+ tree files have the result of "merge" program; i.e. 3-way
+ merge result with familiar conflict markers `<<< === >>>`.
+
+4. No other changes are done. In particular, the local
+ modifications you had before you started merge will stay the
+ same and the index entries for them stay as they were,
+ i.e. matching `HEAD`.
+
+After seeing a conflict, you can do two things:
+
+ * Decide not to merge. The only clean-up you need are to reset
+ the index file to the `HEAD` commit to reverse 2. and to clean
+ up working tree changes made by 2. and 3.; `git-reset` can
+ be used for this.
+
+ * Resolve the conflicts. `git-diff` would report only the
+ conflicting paths because of the above 2. and 3.. Edit the
+ working tree files into a desirable shape, `git-update-index`
+ them, to make the index file contain what the merge result
+ should be, and run `git-commit` to commit the result.

+git-pack-objects(1)
+===================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-pack-objects - Create a packed archive of objects
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-pack-objects' [-q] [--no-reuse-delta] [--non-empty]
+ [--local] [--incremental] [--window=N] [--depth=N]
+ {--stdout | base-name} < object-list
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Reads list of objects from the standard input, and writes a packed
+archive with specified base-name, or to the standard output.
+
+A packed archive is an efficient way to transfer set of objects
+between two repositories, and also is an archival format which
+is efficient to access. The packed archive format (.pack) is
+designed to be unpackable without having anything else, but for
+random access, accompanied with the pack index file (.idx).
+
+'git-unpack-objects' command can read the packed archive and
+expand the objects contained in the pack into "one-file
+one-object" format; this is typically done by the smart-pull
+commands when a pack is created on-the-fly for efficient network
+transport by their peers.
+
+Placing both in the pack/ subdirectory of $GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY (or
+any of the directories on $GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES)
+enables git to read from such an archive.
+
+In a packed archive, an object is either stored as a compressed
+whole, or as a difference from some other object. The latter is
+often called a delta.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+base-name::
+ Write into a pair of files (.pack and .idx), using
+ <base-name> to determine the name of the created file.
+ When this option is used, the two files are written in
+ <base-name>-<SHA1>.{pack,idx} files. <SHA1> is a hash
+ of object names (currently in random order so it does
+ not have any useful meaning) to make the resulting
+ filename reasonably unique, and written to the standard
+ output of the command.
+
+--stdout::
+ Write the pack contents (what would have been written to
+ .pack file) out to the standard output.
+
+--window and --depth::
+ These two options affects how the objects contained in
+ the pack are stored using delta compression. The
+ objects are first internally sorted by type, size and
+ optionally names and compared against the other objects
+ within --window to see if using delta compression saves
+ space. --depth limits the maximum delta depth; making
+ it too deep affects the performance on the unpacker
+ side, because delta data needs to be applied that many
+ times to get to the necessary object.
+
+--incremental::
+ This flag causes an object already in a pack ignored
+ even if it appears in the standard input.
+
+--local::
+ This flag is similar to `--incremental`; instead of
+ ignoring all packed objects, it only ignores objects
+ that are packed and not in the local object store
+ (i.e. borrowed from an alternate).
+
+--non-empty::
+ Only create a packed archive if it would contain at
+ least one object.
+
+-q::
+ This flag makes the command not to report its progress
+ on the standard error stream.
+
+--no-reuse-delta::
+ When creating a packed archive in a repository that
+ has existing packs, the command reuses existing deltas.
+ This sometimes results in a slightly suboptimal pack.
+ This flag tells the command not to reuse existing deltas
+ but compute them from scratch.

+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-pack-redundant' [ --verbose ] [ --alt-odb ] < --all | .pack filename ... >
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This program computes which packs in your repository
+are redundant. The output is suitable for piping to
+'xargs rm' if you are in the root of the repository.
+
+git-pack-redundant accepts a list of objects on standard input. Any objects
+given will be ignored when checking which packs are required. This makes the
+following command useful when wanting to remove packs which contain unreachable
+objects.

+===================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-parse-remote - Routines to help parsing $GIT_DIR/remotes/
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'. git-parse-remote'
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This script is included in various scripts to supply
+routines to parse files under $GIT_DIR/remotes/ and
+$GIT_DIR/branches/.
+
+The primary entry points are:
+
+get_remote_refs_for_fetch::
+ Given the list of user-supplied `<repo> <refspec>...`,
+ return the list of refs to fetch after canonicalizing
+ them into `$GIT_DIR` relative paths
+ (e.g. `refs/heads/foo`). When `<refspec>...` is empty
+ the returned list of refs consists of the defaults
+ for the given `<repo>`, if specified in
+ `$GIT_DIR/remotes/` or `$GIT_DIR/branches/`.
+
+get_remote_refs_for_push::
+ Given the list of user-supplied `<repo> <refspec>...`,
+ return the list of refs to push in a form suitable to be
+ fed to the `git-send-pack` command. When `<refspec>...`
+ is empty the returned list of refs consists of the
+ defaults for the given `<repo>`, if specified in
+ `$GIT_DIR/remotes/`.

+git-patch-id - Generate a patch ID
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-patch-id' < <patch>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+A "patch ID" is nothing but a SHA1 of the diff associated with a patch, with
+whitespace and line numbers ignored. As such, it's "reasonably stable", but at
+the same time also reasonably unique, ie two patches that have the same "patch
+ID" are almost guaranteed to be the same thing.
+
+IOW, you can use this thing to look for likely duplicate commits.
+
+When dealing with git-diff-tree output, it takes advantage of
+the fact that the patch is prefixed with the object name of the
+commit, and outputs two 40-byte hexadecimal string. The first
+string is the patch ID, and the second string is the commit ID.
+This can be used to make a mapping from patch ID to commit ID.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<patch>::

+git-prune-packed - Program used to remove the extra object files that are now
+residing in a pack file.
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-prune-packed' [-n]
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This program search the `$GIT_OBJECT_DIR` for all objects that currently
+exist in a pack file as well as the independent object directories.
+
+All such extra objects are removed.
+
+A pack is a collection of objects, individually compressed, with delta
+compression applied, stored in a single file, with an associated index file.
+
+Packs are used to reduce the load on mirror systems, backup engines,
+disk storage, etc.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-n::
+ Don't actually remove any objects, only show those that would have been
+ removed.

+
+NAME
+----
+git-pull - Pull and merge from another repository
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-pull' <options> <repository> <refspec>...
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Runs `git-fetch` with the given parameters, and calls `git-merge`
+to merge the retrieved head(s) into the current branch.
+
+Note that you can use `.` (current directory) as the
+<repository> to pull from the local repository -- this is useful
+when merging local branches into the current branch.

+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+
+git pull, git pull origin::
+ Fetch the default head from the repository you cloned
+ from and merge it into your current branch.
+
+git pull -s ours . obsolete::
+ Merge local branch `obsolete` into the current branch,
+ using `ours` merge strategy.
+
+git pull . fixes enhancements::
+ Bundle local branch `fixes` and `enhancements` on top of
+ the current branch, making an Octopus merge.
+
+git pull --no-commit . maint::
+ Merge local branch `maint` into the current branch, but
+ do not make a commit automatically. This can be used
+ when you want to include further changes to the merge,
+ or want to write your own merge commit message.
++
+You should refrain from abusing this option to sneak substantial
+changes into a merge commit. Small fixups like bumping
+release/version name would be acceptable.
+
+Command line pull of multiple branches from one repository::
++
+------------------------------------------------
+$ cat .git/remotes/origin
+URL: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git
+Pull: master:origin
+
+$ git checkout master
+$ git fetch origin master:origin +pu:pu maint:maint
+$ git pull . origin
+------------------------------------------------
++
+Here, a typical `.git/remotes/origin` file from a
+`git-clone` operation is used in combination with
+command line options to `git-fetch` to first update
+multiple branches of the local repository and then
+to merge the remote `origin` branch into the local
+`master` branch. The local `pu` branch is updated
+even if it does not result in a fast forward update.
+Here, the pull can obtain its objects from the local
+repository using `.`, as the previous `git-fetch` is
+known to have already obtained and made available
+all the necessary objects.
+
+
+Pull of multiple branches from one repository using `.git/remotes` file::
++
+------------------------------------------------
+$ cat .git/remotes/origin
+URL: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git
+Pull: master:origin
+Pull: +pu:pu
+Pull: maint:maint
+
+$ git checkout master
+$ git pull origin
+------------------------------------------------
++
+Here, a typical `.git/remotes/origin` file from a
+`git-clone` operation has been hand-modified to include
+the branch-mapping of additional remote and local
+heads directly. A single `git-pull` operation while
+in the `master` branch will fetch multiple heads and
+merge the remote `origin` head into the current,
+local `master` branch.
+
+
+If you tried a pull which resulted in a complex conflicts and
+would want to start over, you can recover with
+gitlink:git-reset[1].

+NAME
+----
+git-push - Update remote refs along with associated objects
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-push' [--all] [--tags] [--force] <repository> <refspec>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Updates remote refs using local refs, while sending objects
+necessary to complete the given refs.
+
+You can make interesting things happen to a repository
+every time you push into it, by setting up 'hooks' there. See
+documentation for gitlink:git-receive-pack[1].
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<repository>::
+ The "remote" repository that is destination of a push
+ operation. See the section <<URLS,GIT URLS>> below.
+
+<refspec>::
+ The canonical format of a <refspec> parameter is
+ `+?<src>:<dst>`; that is, an optional plus `+`, followed
+ by the source ref, followed by a colon `:`, followed by
+ the destination ref.
++
+The <src> side can be an
+arbitrary "SHA1 expression" that can be used as an
+argument to `git-cat-file -t`. E.g. `master~4` (push
+four parents before the current master head).
++
+The local ref that matches <src> is used
+to fast forward the remote ref that matches <dst>. If
+the optional plus `+` is used, the remote ref is updated
+even if it does not result in a fast forward update.
++
+Note: If no explicit refspec is found, (that is neither
+on the command line nor in any Push line of the
+corresponding remotes file---see below), then all the
+refs that exist both on the local side and on the remote
+side are updated.
++
+Some short-cut notations are also supported.
++
+* `tag <tag>` means the same as `refs/tags/<tag>:refs/tags/<tag>`.
+* A parameter <ref> without a colon is equivalent to
+ <ref>`:`<ref>, hence updates <ref> in the destination from <ref>
+ in the source.
+
+\--all::
+ Instead of naming each ref to push, specifies that all
+ refs be pushed.
+
+\--tags::
+ All refs under `$GIT_DIR/refs/tags` are pushed, in
+ addition to refspecs explicitly listed on the command
+ line.
+
+-f, \--force::
+ Usually, the command refuses to update a remote ref that is
+ not a descendent of the local ref used to overwrite it.
+ This flag disables the check. This can cause the
+ remote repository to lose commits; use it with care.

+git-read-tree(1)
+================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-read-tree - Reads tree information into the index
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-read-tree' (<tree-ish> | [[-m [--aggressive]| --reset] [-u | -i]] <tree-ish1> [<tree-ish2> [<tree-ish3>]])
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Reads the tree information given by <tree-ish> into the index,
+but does not actually *update* any of the files it "caches". (see:
+gitlink:git-checkout-index[1])
+
+Optionally, it can merge a tree into the index, perform a
+fast-forward (i.e. 2-way) merge, or a 3-way merge, with the `-m`
+flag. When used with `-m`, the `-u` flag causes it to also update
+the files in the work tree with the result of the merge.
+
+Trivial merges are done by `git-read-tree` itself. Only conflicting paths
+will be in unmerged state when `git-read-tree` returns.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-m::
+ Perform a merge, not just a read. The command will
+ refuse to run if your index file has unmerged entries,
+ indicating that you have not finished previous merge you
+ started.
+
+--reset::
+ Same as -m, except that unmerged entries are discarded
+ instead of failing.
+
+-u::
+ After a successful merge, update the files in the work
+ tree with the result of the merge.
+
+-i::
+ Usually a merge requires the index file as well as the
+ files in the working tree are up to date with the
+ current head commit, in order not to lose local
+ changes. This flag disables the check with the working
+ tree and is meant to be used when creating a merge of
+ trees that are not directly related to the current
+ working tree status into a temporary index file.
+
+--aggressive::
+ Usually a three-way merge by `git-read-tree` resolves
+ the merge for really trivial cases and leaves other
+ cases unresolved in the index, so that Porcelains can
+ implement different merge policies. This flag makes the
+ command to resolve a few more cases internally:
++
+* when one side removes a path and the other side leaves the path
+ unmodified. The resolution is to remove that path.
+* when both sides remove a path. The resolution is to remove that path.
+* when both sides adds a path identically. The resolution
+ is to add that path.
+
+<tree-ish#>::
+ The id of the tree object(s) to be read/merged.
+
+
+Merging
+-------
+If `-m` is specified, `git-read-tree` can perform 3 kinds of
+merge, a single tree merge if only 1 tree is given, a
+fast-forward merge with 2 trees, or a 3-way merge if 3 trees are
+provided.
+
+
+Single Tree Merge
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+If only 1 tree is specified, git-read-tree operates as if the user did not
+specify `-m`, except that if the original index has an entry for a
+given pathname, and the contents of the path matches with the tree
+being read, the stat info from the index is used. (In other words, the
+index's stat()s take precedence over the merged tree's).
+
+That means that if you do a `git-read-tree -m <newtree>` followed by a
+`git-checkout-index -f -u -a`, the `git-checkout-index` only checks out
+the stuff that really changed.
+
+This is used to avoid unnecessary false hits when `git-diff-files` is
+run after `git-read-tree`.
+
+
+Two Tree Merge
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Typically, this is invoked as `git-read-tree -m $H $M`, where $H
+is the head commit of the current repository, and $M is the head
+of a foreign tree, which is simply ahead of $H (i.e. we are in a
+fast forward situation).
+
+When two trees are specified, the user is telling git-read-tree
+the following:
+
+ 1. The current index and work tree is derived from $H, but
+ the user may have local changes in them since $H;
+
+ 2. The user wants to fast-forward to $M.
+
+In this case, the `git-read-tree -m $H $M` command makes sure
+that no local change is lost as the result of this "merge".
+Here are the "carry forward" rules:
+
+ I (index) H M Result
+ -------------------------------------------------------
+ 0 nothing nothing nothing (does not happen)
+ 1 nothing nothing exists use M
+ 2 nothing exists nothing remove path from index
+ 3 nothing exists exists use M
+
+ clean I==H I==M
+ ------------------
+ 4 yes N/A N/A nothing nothing keep index
+ 5 no N/A N/A nothing nothing keep index
+
+ 6 yes N/A yes nothing exists keep index
+ 7 no N/A yes nothing exists keep index
+ 8 yes N/A no nothing exists fail
+ 9 no N/A no nothing exists fail
+
+ 10 yes yes N/A exists nothing remove path from index
+ 11 no yes N/A exists nothing fail
+ 12 yes no N/A exists nothing fail
+ 13 no no N/A exists nothing fail
+
+ clean (H=M)
+ ------
+ 14 yes exists exists keep index
+ 15 no exists exists keep index
+
+ clean I==H I==M (H!=M)
+ ------------------
+ 16 yes no no exists exists fail
+ 17 no no no exists exists fail
+ 18 yes no yes exists exists keep index
+ 19 no no yes exists exists keep index
+ 20 yes yes no exists exists use M
+ 21 no yes no exists exists fail
+
+In all "keep index" cases, the index entry stays as in the
+original index file. If the entry were not up to date,
+git-read-tree keeps the copy in the work tree intact when
+operating under the -u flag.
+
+When this form of git-read-tree returns successfully, you can
+see what "local changes" you made are carried forward by running
+`git-diff-index --cached $M`. Note that this does not
+necessarily match `git-diff-index --cached $H` would have
+produced before such a two tree merge. This is because of cases
+18 and 19 --- if you already had the changes in $M (e.g. maybe
+you picked it up via e-mail in a patch form), `git-diff-index
+--cached $H` would have told you about the change before this
+merge, but it would not show in `git-diff-index --cached $M`
+output after two-tree merge.
+
+
+3-Way Merge
+~~~~~~~~~~~
+Each "index" entry has two bits worth of "stage" state. stage 0 is the
+normal one, and is the only one you'd see in any kind of normal use.
+
+However, when you do `git-read-tree` with three trees, the "stage"
+starts out at 1.
+
+This means that you can do
+
+----------------
+$ git-read-tree -m <tree1> <tree2> <tree3>
+----------------
+
+and you will end up with an index with all of the <tree1> entries in
+"stage1", all of the <tree2> entries in "stage2" and all of the
+<tree3> entries in "stage3". When performing a merge of another
+branch into the current branch, we use the common ancestor tree
+as <tree1>, the current branch head as <tree2>, and the other
+branch head as <tree3>.
+
+Furthermore, `git-read-tree` has special-case logic that says: if you see
+a file that matches in all respects in the following states, it
+"collapses" back to "stage0":
+
+ - stage 2 and 3 are the same; take one or the other (it makes no
+ difference - the same work has been done on our branch in
+ stage 2 and their branch in stage 3)
+
+ - stage 1 and stage 2 are the same and stage 3 is different; take
+ stage 3 (our branch in stage 2 did not do anything since the
+ ancestor in stage 1 while their branch in stage 3 worked on
+ it)
+
+ - stage 1 and stage 3 are the same and stage 2 is different take
+ stage 2 (we did something while they did nothing)
+
+The `git-write-tree` command refuses to write a nonsensical tree, and it
+will complain about unmerged entries if it sees a single entry that is not
+stage 0.
+
+Ok, this all sounds like a collection of totally nonsensical rules,
+but it's actually exactly what you want in order to do a fast
+merge. The different stages represent the "result tree" (stage 0, aka
+"merged"), the original tree (stage 1, aka "orig"), and the two trees
+you are trying to merge (stage 2 and 3 respectively).
+
+The order of stages 1, 2 and 3 (hence the order of three
+<tree-ish> command line arguments) are significant when you
+start a 3-way merge with an index file that is already
+populated. Here is an outline of how the algorithm works:
+
+- if a file exists in identical format in all three trees, it will
+ automatically collapse to "merged" state by git-read-tree.
+
+- a file that has _any_ difference what-so-ever in the three trees
+ will stay as separate entries in the index. It's up to "porcelain
+ policy" to determine how to remove the non-0 stages, and insert a
+ merged version.
+
+- the index file saves and restores with all this information, so you
+ can merge things incrementally, but as long as it has entries in
+ stages 1/2/3 (ie "unmerged entries") you can't write the result. So
+ now the merge algorithm ends up being really simple:
+
+ * you walk the index in order, and ignore all entries of stage 0,
+ since they've already been done.
+
+ * if you find a "stage1", but no matching "stage2" or "stage3", you
+ know it's been removed from both trees (it only existed in the
+ original tree), and you remove that entry.
+
+ * if you find a matching "stage2" and "stage3" tree, you remove one
+ of them, and turn the other into a "stage0" entry. Remove any
+ matching "stage1" entry if it exists too. .. all the normal
+ trivial rules ..
+
+You would normally use `git-merge-index` with supplied
+`git-merge-one-file` to do this last step. The script updates
+the files in the working tree as it merges each path and at the
+end of a successful merge.
+
+When you start a 3-way merge with an index file that is already
+populated, it is assumed that it represents the state of the
+files in your work tree, and you can even have files with
+changes unrecorded in the index file. It is further assumed
+that this state is "derived" from the stage 2 tree. The 3-way
+merge refuses to run if it finds an entry in the original index
+file that does not match stage 2.
+
+This is done to prevent you from losing your work-in-progress
+changes, and mixing your random changes in an unrelated merge
+commit. To illustrate, suppose you start from what has been
+commited last to your repository:
+
+----------------
+$ JC=`git-rev-parse --verify "HEAD^0"`
+$ git-checkout-index -f -u -a $JC
+----------------
+
+You do random edits, without running git-update-index. And then
+you notice that the tip of your "upstream" tree has advanced
+since you pulled from him:
+
+----------------
+$ git-fetch git://.... linus
+$ LT=`cat .git/FETCH_HEAD`
+----------------
+
+Your work tree is still based on your HEAD ($JC), but you have
+some edits since. Three-way merge makes sure that you have not
+added or modified index entries since $JC, and if you haven't,
+then does the right thing. So with the following sequence:
+
+----------------
+$ git-read-tree -m -u `git-merge-base $JC $LT` $JC $LT
+$ git-merge-index git-merge-one-file -a
+$ echo "Merge with Linus" | \
+ git-commit-tree `git-write-tree` -p $JC -p $LT
+----------------
+
+what you would commit is a pure merge between $JC and $LT without
+your work-in-progress changes, and your work tree would be
+updated to the result of the merge.
+
+However, if you have local changes in the working tree that
+would be overwritten by this merge,`git-read-tree` will refuse
+to run to prevent your changes from being lost.
+
+In other words, there is no need to worry about what exists only
+in the working tree. When you have local changes in a part of
+the project that is not involved in the merge, your changes do
+not interfere with the merge, and are kept intact. When they
+*do* interfere, the merge does not even start (`git-read-tree`
+complains loudly and fails without modifying anything). In such
+a case, you can simply continue doing what you were in the
+middle of doing, and when your working tree is ready (i.e. you
+have finished your work-in-progress), attempt the merge again.

+NAME
+----
+git-rebase - Rebase local commits to new upstream head
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-rebase' [--onto <newbase>] <upstream> [<branch>]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+git-rebase applies to <upstream> (or optionally to <newbase>) commits
+from <branch> that do not appear in <upstream>. When <branch> is not
+specified it defaults to the current branch (HEAD).
+
+When git-rebase is complete, <branch> will be updated to point to the
+newly created line of commit objects, so the previous line will not be
+accessible unless there are other references to it already.
+
+Assume the following history exists and the current branch is "topic":
+
+ A---B---C topic
+ /
+ D---E---F---G master
+
+From this point, the result of either of the following commands:
+
+ git-rebase master
+ git-rebase master topic
+
+would be:
+
+ A'--B'--C' topic
+ /
+ D---E---F---G master
+
+While, starting from the same point, the result of either of the following
+commands:
+
+ git-rebase --onto master~1 master
+ git-rebase --onto master~1 master topic
+
+would be:
+
+ A'--B'--C' topic
+ /
+ D---E---F---G master
+
+In case of conflict, git-rebase will stop at the first problematic commit
+and leave conflict markers in the tree. After resolving the conflict manually
+and updating the index with the desired resolution, you can continue the
+rebasing process with
+
+ git am --resolved --3way
+
+Alternatively, you can undo the git-rebase with
+
+ git reset --hard ORIG_HEAD
+ rm -r .dotest
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<newbase>::
+ Starting point at which to create the new commits. If the
+ --onto option is not specified, the starting point is
+ <upstream>.
+
+<upstream>::
+ Upstream branch to compare against.
+
+<branch>::
+ Working branch; defaults to HEAD.

+git-receive-pack(1)
+===================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-receive-pack - Receive what is pushed into it
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-receive-pack' <directory>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+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
+'git-clone-pack'.
+
+The command allows for creation and fast forwarding of sha1 refs
+(heads/tags) on the remote end (strictly speaking, it is the
+local end receive-pack runs, but to the user who is sitting at
+the send-pack end, it is updating the remote. Confused?)
+
+Before each ref is updated, if $GIT_DIR/hooks/update file exists
+and executable, it is called with three parameters:
+
+ $GIT_DIR/hooks/update refname sha1-old sha1-new
+
+The refname parameter is relative to $GIT_DIR; e.g. for the
+master head this is "refs/heads/master". Two sha1 are the
+object names for the refname before and after the update. Note
+that the hook is called before the refname is updated, so either
+sha1-old is 0{40} (meaning there is no such ref yet), or it
+should match what is recorded in refname.
+
+The hook should exit with non-zero status if it wants to
+disallow updating the named ref. Otherwise it should exit with
+zero.
+
+Using this hook, it is easy to generate mails on updates to
+the local repository. This example script sends a mail with
+the commits pushed to the repository:
+
+ #!/bin/sh
+ # mail out commit update information.
+ if expr "$2" : '0*$' >/dev/null
+ then
+ echo "Created a new ref, with the following commits:"
+ git-rev-list --pretty "$2"
+ else
+ echo "New commits:"
+ git-rev-list --pretty "$3" "^$2"
+ fi |
+ mail -s "Changes to ref $1" commit-list@mydomain
+ exit 0
+
+Another hook $GIT_DIR/hooks/post-update, if exists and
+executable, is called with the list of refs that have been
+updated. This can be used to implement repository wide cleanup
+task if needed. The exit code from this hook invocation is
+ignored; the only thing left for git-receive-pack to do at that
+point is to exit itself anyway. This hook can be used, for
+example, to run "git-update-server-info" if the repository is
+packed and is served via a dumb transport.
+
+ #!/bin/sh
+ exec git-update-server-info
+
+There are other real-world examples of using update and
+post-update hooks found in the Documentation/howto directory.

+git-repack - Script used to pack a repository from a collection of
+objects into pack files.
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-repack' [-a] [-d] [-f] [-l] [-n] [-q]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+This script is used to combine all objects that do not currently
+reside in a "pack", into a pack.
+
+A pack is a collection of objects, individually compressed, with
+delta compression applied, stored in a single file, with an
+associated index file.
+
+Packs are used to reduce the load on mirror systems, backup
+engines, disk storage, etc.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+
+-a::
+ Instead of incrementally packing the unpacked objects,
+ pack everything available into a single pack.
+ Especially useful when packing a repository that is used
+ for a private development and there no need to worry
+ about people fetching via dumb protocols from it. Use
+ with '-d'.
+
+-d::
+ After packing, if the newly created packs make some
+ existing packs redundant, remove the redundant packs.
+
+-l::
+ Pass the `--local` option to `git pack-objects`, see
+ gitlink:git-pack-objects[1].
+
+-f::
+ Pass the `--no-reuse-delta` option to `git pack-objects`, see
+ gitlink:git-pack-objects[1].
+
+-q::
+ Pass the `-q` option to `git pack-objects`, see
+ gitlink:git-pack-objects[1].
+

+git-repo-config(1)
+==================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-repo-config - Get and set options in .git/config
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-repo-config' [type] name [value [value_regex]]
+'git-repo-config' [type] --replace-all name [value [value_regex]]
+'git-repo-config' [type] --get name [value_regex]
+'git-repo-config' [type] --get-all name [value_regex]
+'git-repo-config' [type] --unset name [value_regex]
+'git-repo-config' [type] --unset-all name [value_regex]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+You can query/set/replace/unset options with this command. The name is
+actually the section and the key separated by a dot, and the value will be
+escaped.
+
+If you want to set/unset an option which can occur on multiple lines, you
+should provide a POSIX regex for the value. If you want to handle the lines
+*not* matching the regex, just prepend a single exclamation mark in front
+(see EXAMPLES).
+
+The type specifier can be either '--int' or '--bool', which will make
+'git-repo-config' ensure that the variable(s) are of the given type and
+convert the value to the canonical form (simple decimal number for int,
+a "true" or "false" string for bool). If no type specifier is passed,
+no checks or transformations are performed on the value.
+
+This command will fail if
+
+. .git/config is invalid,
+. .git/config can not be written to,
+. no section was provided,
+. the section or key is invalid,
+. you try to unset an option which does not exist, or
+. you try to unset/set an option for which multiple lines match.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+
+--replace-all::
+ Default behaviour is to replace at most one line. This replaces
+ all lines matching the key (and optionally the value_regex)
+
+--get::
+ Get the value for a given key (optionally filtered by a regex
+ matching the value).
+
+--get-all::
+ Like get, but does not fail if the number of values for the key
+ is not exactly one.
+
+--unset::
+ Remove the line matching the key from .git/config.
+
+--unset-all::
+ Remove all matching lines from .git/config.
+
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+
+Given a .git/config like this:
+
+ #
+ # This is the config file, and
+ # a '#' or ';' character indicates
+ # a comment
+ #
+
+ ; core variables
+ [core]
+ ; Don't trust file modes
+ filemode = false
+
+ ; Our diff algorithm
+ [diff]
+ external = "/usr/local/bin/gnu-diff -u"
+ renames = true
+
+ ; Proxy settings
+ [proxy]
+ command="ssh" for "ssh://kernel.org/"
+ command="proxy-command" for kernel.org
+ command="myprotocol-command" for "my://"
+ command=default-proxy ; for all the rest
+
+you can set the filemode to true with
+
+------------
+% git repo-config core.filemode true
+------------
+
+The hypothetic proxy command entries actually have a postfix to discern
+to what URL they apply. Here is how to change the entry for kernel.org
+to "ssh".
+
+------------
+% git repo-config proxy.command '"ssh" for kernel.org' 'for kernel.org$'
+------------
+
+This makes sure that only the key/value pair for kernel.org is replaced.
+
+To delete the entry for renames, do
+
+------------
+% git repo-config --unset diff.renames
+------------
+
+If you want to delete an entry for a multivar (like proxy.command above),
+you have to provide a regex matching the value of exactly one line.
+
+To query the value for a given key, do
+
+------------
+% git repo-config --get core.filemode
+------------
+
+or
+
+------------
+% git repo-config core.filemode
+------------
+
+or, to query a multivar:
+
+------------
+% git repo-config --get proxy.command "for kernel.org$"
+------------
+
+If you want to know all the values for a multivar, do:
+
+------------
+% git repo-config --get-all proxy.command
+------------
+
+If you like to live dangerous, you can replace *all* proxy.commands by a
+new one with
+
+------------
+% git repo-config --replace-all proxy.command ssh
+------------
+
+However, if you really only want to replace the line for the default proxy,
+i.e. the one without a "for ..." postfix, do something like this:
+
+------------
+% git repo-config proxy.command ssh '! for '
+------------
+
+To actually match only values with an exclamation mark, you have to
+
+------------
+% git repo-config section.key value '[!]'
+------------

+git-rerere(1)
+=============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-rerere - Reuse recorded resolve
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-rerere'
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+In a workflow that employs relatively long lived topic branches,
+the developer sometimes needs to resolve the same conflict over
+and over again until the topic branches are done (either merged
+to the "release" branch, or sent out and accepted upstream).
+
+This command helps this process by recording conflicted
+automerge results and corresponding hand-resolve results on the
+initial manual merge, and later by noticing the same automerge
+results and applying the previously recorded hand resolution.
+
+[NOTE]
+You need to create `$GIT_DIR/rr-cache` directory to enable this
+command.
+
+DISCUSSION
+----------
+
+When your topic branch modifies overlapping area that your
+master branch (or upstream) touched since your topic branch
+forked from it, you may want to test it with the latest master,
+even before your topic branch is ready to be pushed upstream:
+
+------------
+ o---*---o topic
+ /
+ o---o---o---*---o---o master
+------------
+
+For such a test, you need to merge master and topic somehow.
+One way to do it is to pull master into the topic branch:
+
+------------
+ $ git checkout topic
+ $ git pull . master
+
+ o---*---o---+ topic
+ / /
+ o---o---o---*---o---o master
+------------
+
+The commits marked with `*` touch the same area in the same
+file; you need to resolve the conflicts when creating the commit
+marked with `+`. Then you can test the result to make sure your
+work-in-progress still works with what is in the latest master.
+
+After this test merge, there are two ways to continue your work
+on the topic. The easiest is to build on top of the test merge
+commit `+`, and when your work in the topic branch is finally
+ready, pull the topic branch into master, and/or ask the
+upstream to pull from you. By that time, however, the master or
+the upstream might have been advanced since the test merge `+`,
+in which case the final commit graph would look like this:
+
+------------
+ $ git checkout topic
+ $ git pull . master
+ $ ... work on both topic and master branches
+ $ git checkout master
+ $ git pull . topic
+
+ o---*---o---+---o---o topic
+ / / \
+ o---o---o---*---o---o---o---o---+ master
+------------
+
+When your topic branch is long-lived, however, your topic branch
+would end up having many such "Merge from master" commits on it,
+which would unnecessarily clutter the development history.
+Readers of the Linux kernel mailing list may remember that Linus
+complained about such too frequent test merges when a subsystem
+maintainer asked to pull from a branch full of "useless merges".
+
+As an alternative, to keep the topic branch clean of test
+merges, you could blow away the test merge, and keep building on
+top of the tip before the test merge:
+
+------------
+ $ git checkout topic
+ $ git pull . master
+ $ git reset --hard HEAD^ ;# rewind the test merge
+ $ ... work on both topic and master branches
+ $ git checkout master
+ $ git pull . topic
+
+ o---*---o-------o---o topic
+ / \
+ o---o---o---*---o---o---o---o---+ master
+------------
+
+This would leave only one merge commit when your topic branch is
+finally ready and merged into the master branch. This merge
+would require you to resolve the conflict, introduced by the
+commits marked with `*`. However, often this conflict is the
+same conflict you resolved when you created the test merge you
+blew away. `git-rerere` command helps you to resolve this final
+conflicted merge using the information from your earlier hand
+resolve.
+
+Running `git-rerere` command immediately after a conflicted
+automerge records the conflicted working tree files, with the
+usual conflict markers `<<<<<<<`, `=======`, and `>>>>>>>` in
+them. Later, after you are done resolving the conflicts,
+running `git-rerere` again records the resolved state of these
+files. Suppose you did this when you created the test merge of
+master into the topic branch.
+
+Next time, running `git-rerere` after seeing a conflicted
+automerge, if the conflict is the same as the earlier one
+recorded, it is noticed and a three-way merge between the
+earlier conflicted automerge, the earlier manual resolution, and
+the current conflicted automerge is performed by the command.
+If this three-way merge resolves cleanly, the result is written
+out to your working tree file, so you would not have to manually
+resolve it. Note that `git-rerere` leaves the index file alone,
+so you still need to do the final sanity checks with `git diff`
+(or `git diff -c`) and `git update-index` when you are
+satisfied.
+
+As a convenience measure, `git-merge` automatically invokes
+`git-rerere` when it exits with a failed automerge, which
+records it if it is a new conflict, or reuses the earlier hand
+resolve when it is not. `git-commit` also invokes `git-rerere`
+when recording a merge result. What this means is that you do
+not have to do anything special yourself (Note: you still have
+to create `$GIT_DIR/rr-cache` directory to enable this command).
+
+In our example, when you did the test merge, the manual
+resolution is recorded, and it will be reused when you do the
+actual merge later with updated master and topic branch, as long
+as the earlier resolution is still applicable.
+
+The information `git-rerere` records is also used when running
+`git-rebase`. After blowing away the test merge and continuing
+development on the topic branch:
+
+------------
+ o---*---o-------o---o topic
+ /
+ o---o---o---*---o---o---o---o master
+
+ $ git rebase master topic
+
+ o---*---o-------o---o topic
+ /
+ o---o---o---*---o---o---o---o master
+------------
+
+you could run `git rebase master topic`, to keep yourself
+up-to-date even before your topic is ready to be sent upstream.
+This would result in falling back to three-way merge, and it
+would conflict the same way the test merge you resolved earlier.
+`git-rerere` is run by `git rebase` to help you resolve this
+conflict.

+============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-reset - Reset current HEAD to the specified state
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-reset' [--mixed | --soft | --hard] [<commit-ish>]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Sets the current head to the specified commit and optionally resets the
+index and working tree to match.
+
+This command is useful if you notice some small error in a recent
+commit (or set of commits) and want to redo that part without showing
+the undo in the history.
+
+If you want to undo a commit other than the latest on a branch,
+gitlink:git-revert[1] is your friend.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--mixed::
+ Resets the index but not the working tree (ie, the changed files
+ are preserved but not marked for commit) and reports what has not
+ been updated. This is the default action.
+
+--soft::
+ Does not touch the index file nor the working tree at all, but
+ requires them to be in a good order. This leaves all your changed
+ files "Updated but not checked in", as gitlink:git-status[1] would
+ put it.
+
+--hard::
+ Matches the working tree and index to that of the tree being
+ switched to. Any changes to tracked files in the working tree
+ since <commit-ish> are lost.
+
+<commit-ish>::
+ Commit to make the current HEAD.
+
+Examples
+~~~~~~~~
+
+Undo a commit and redo::
++
+------------
+$ git commit ...
+$ git reset --soft HEAD^ <1>
+$ edit <2>
+$ git commit -a -c ORIG_HEAD <3>
+
+<1> This is most often done when you remembered what you
+just committed is incomplete, or you misspelled your commit
+message, or both. Leaves working tree as it was before "reset".
+<2> make corrections to working tree files.
+<3> "reset" copies the old head to .git/ORIG_HEAD; redo the
+commit by starting with its log message. If you do not need to
+edit the message further, you can give -C option instead.
+------------
+
+Undo commits permanently::
++
+------------
+$ git commit ...
+$ git reset --hard HEAD~3 <1>
+
+<1> The last three commits (HEAD, HEAD^, and HEAD~2) were bad
+and you do not want to ever see them again. Do *not* do this if
+you have already given these commits to somebody else.
+------------
+
+Undo a commit, making it a topic branch::
++
+------------
+$ git branch topic/wip <1>
+$ git reset --hard HEAD~3 <2>
+$ git checkout topic/wip <3>
+
+<1> You have made some commits, but realize they were premature
+to be in the "master" branch. You want to continue polishing
+them in a topic branch, so create "topic/wip" branch off of the
+current HEAD.
+<2> Rewind the master branch to get rid of those three commits.
+<3> Switch to "topic/wip" branch and keep working.
+------------
+
+Undo update-index::
++
+------------
+$ edit <1>
+$ git-update-index frotz.c filfre.c
+$ mailx <2>
+$ git reset <3>
+$ git pull git://info.example.com/ nitfol <4>
+
+<1> you are happily working on something, and find the changes
+in these files are in good order. You do not want to see them
+when you run "git diff", because you plan to work on other files
+and changes with these files are distracting.
+<2> somebody asks you to pull, and the changes sounds worthy of merging.
+<3> however, you already dirtied the index (i.e. your index does
+not match the HEAD commit). But you know the pull you are going
+to make does not affect frotz.c nor filfre.c, so you revert the
+index changes for these two files. Your changes in working tree
+remain there.
+<4> then you can pull and merge, leaving frotz.c and filfre.c
+changes still in the working tree.
+------------
+
+Undo a merge or pull::
++
+------------
+$ git pull <1>
+Trying really trivial in-index merge...
+fatal: Merge requires file-level merging
+Nope.
+...
+Auto-merging nitfol
+CONFLICT (content): Merge conflict in nitfol
+Automatic merge failed/prevented; fix up by hand
+$ git reset --hard <2>
+
+<1> try to update from the upstream resulted in a lot of
+conflicts; you were not ready to spend a lot of time merging
+right now, so you decide to do that later.
+<2> "pull" has not made merge commit, so "git reset --hard"
+which is a synonym for "git reset --hard HEAD" clears the mess
+from the index file and the working tree.
+
+$ git pull . topic/branch <3>
+Updating from 41223... to 13134...
+Fast forward
+$ git reset --hard ORIG_HEAD <4>
+
+<3> merge a topic branch into the current branch, which resulted
+in a fast forward.
+<4> but you decided that the topic branch is not ready for public
+consumption yet. "pull" or "merge" always leaves the original
+tip of the current branch in ORIG_HEAD, so resetting hard to it
+brings your index file and the working tree back to that state,
+and resets the tip of the branch to that commit.
+------------
+
+Interrupted workflow::
++
+Suppose you are interrupted by an urgent fix request while you
+are in the middle of a large change. The files in your
+working tree are not in any shape to be committed yet, but you
+need to get to the other branch for a quick bugfix.
++
+------------
+$ git checkout feature ;# you were working in "feature" branch and
+$ work work work ;# got interrupted
+$ git commit -a -m 'snapshot WIP' <1>
+$ git checkout master
+$ fix fix fix
+$ git commit ;# commit with real log
+$ git checkout feature
+$ git reset --soft HEAD^ ;# go back to WIP state <2>
+$ git reset <3>
+
+<1> This commit will get blown away so a throw-away log message is OK.
+<2> This removes the 'WIP' commit from the commit history, and sets
+ your working tree to the state just before you made that snapshot.
+<3> After <2>, the index file still has all the WIP changes you
+ committed in <1>. This sets it to the last commit you were
+ basing the WIP changes on.

+git-rev-list(1)
+===============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-rev-list - Lists commit objects in reverse chronological order
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-rev-list' [ \--max-count=number ]
+ [ \--max-age=timestamp ]
+ [ \--min-age=timestamp ]
+ [ \--sparse ]
+ [ \--no-merges ]
+ [ \--remove-empty ]
+ [ \--all ]
+ [ \--topo-order ]
+ [ \--parents ]
+ [ [\--objects | \--objects-edge] [ \--unpacked ] ]
+ [ \--pretty | \--header ]
+ [ \--bisect ]
+ <commit>... [ \-- <paths>... ]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Lists commit objects in reverse chronological order starting at the
+given commit(s), taking ancestry relationship into account. This is
+useful to produce human-readable log output.
+
+Commits which are stated with a preceding '{caret}' cause listing to stop at
+that point. Their parents are implied. "git-rev-list foo bar {caret}baz" thus
+means "list all the commits which are included in 'foo' and 'bar', but
+not in 'baz'".
+
+A special notation <commit1>..<commit2> can be used as a
+short-hand for {caret}<commit1> <commit2>.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--pretty::
+ Print the contents of the commit changesets in human-readable form.
+
+--header::
+ Print the contents of the commit in raw-format; each
+ record is separated with a NUL character.
+
+--objects::
+ Print the object IDs of any object referenced by the listed commits.
+ 'git-rev-list --objects foo ^bar' thus means "send me all object IDs
+ which I need to download if I have the commit object 'bar', but
+ not 'foo'".
+
+--objects-edge::
+ Similar to `--objects`, but also print the IDs of
+ excluded commits refixed with a `-` character. This is
+ used by `git-pack-objects` to build 'thin' pack, which
+ records objects in deltified form based on objects
+ contained in these excluded commits to reduce network
+ traffic.
+
+--unpacked::
+ Only useful with `--objects`; print the object IDs that
+ are not in packs.
+
+--bisect::
+ Limit output to the one commit object which is roughly halfway
+ between the included and excluded commits. Thus, if 'git-rev-list
+ --bisect foo ^bar ^baz' outputs 'midpoint', the output
+ of 'git-rev-list foo ^midpoint' and 'git-rev-list midpoint
+ ^bar ^baz' would be of roughly the same length. Finding the change
+ which introduces a regression is thus reduced to a binary search:
+ repeatedly generate and test new 'midpoint's until the commit chain
+ is of length one.
+
+--max-count::
+ Limit the number of commits output.
+
+--max-age=timestamp, --min-age=timestamp::
+ Limit the commits output to specified time range.
+
+--sparse::
+ When optional paths are given, the command outputs only
+ the commits that changes at least one of them, and also
+ ignores merges that do not touch the given paths. This
+ flag makes the command output all eligible commits
+ (still subject to count and age limitation), but apply
+ merge simplification nevertheless.
+
+--remove-empty::
+ Stop when a given path disappears from the tree.
+
+--all::
+ Pretend as if all the refs in `$GIT_DIR/refs/` are
+ listed on the command line as <commit>.
+
+--topo-order::
+ By default, the commits are shown in reverse
+ chronological order. This option makes them appear in
+ topological order (i.e. descendant commits are shown
+ before their parents).

+git-rev-parse(1)
+================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-rev-parse - Pick out and massage parameters
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-rev-parse' [ --option ] <args>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Many git Porcelainish commands take mixture of flags
+(i.e. parameters that begin with a dash '-') and parameters
+meant for underlying `git-rev-list` command they use internally
+and flags and parameters for other commands they use as the
+downstream of `git-rev-list`. This command is used to
+distinguish between them.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--revs-only::
+ Do not output flags and parameters not meant for
+ `git-rev-list` command.
+
+--no-revs::
+ Do not output flags and parameters meant for
+ `git-rev-list` command.
+
+--flags::
+ Do not output non-flag parameters.
+
+--no-flags::
+ Do not output flag parameters.
+
+--default <arg>::
+ If there is no parameter given by the user, use `<arg>`
+ instead.
+
+--verify::
+ The parameter given must be usable as a single, valid
+ object name. Otherwise barf and abort.
+
+--sq::
+ Usually the output is made one line per flag and
+ parameter. This option makes output a single line,
+ properly quoted for consumption by shell. Useful when
+ you expect your parameter to contain whitespaces and
+ newlines (e.g. when using pickaxe `-S` with
+ `git-diff-\*`).
+
+--not::
+ When showing object names, prefix them with '{caret}' and
+ strip '{caret}' prefix from the object names that already have
+ one.
+
+--symbolic::
+ Usually the object names are output in SHA1 form (with
+ possible '{caret}' prefix); this option makes them output in a
+ form as close to the original input as possible.
+
+
+--all::
+ Show all refs found in `$GIT_DIR/refs`.
+
+--show-prefix::
+ When the command is invoked from a subdirectory, show the
+ path of the current directory relative to the top-level
+ directory.
+
+--show-cdup::
+ When the command is invoked from a subdirectory, show the
+ path of the top-level directory relative to the current
+ directory (typically a sequence of "../", or an empty string).
+
+--git-dir::
+ Show `$GIT_DIR` if defined else show the path to the .git directory.
+
+--short, --short=number::
+ Instead of outputting the full SHA1 values of object names try to
+ abbriviate them to a shorter unique name. When no length is specified
+ 7 is used. The minimum length is 4.
+
+--since=datestring, --after=datestring::
+ Parses the date string, and outputs corresponding
+ --max-age= parameter for git-rev-list command.
+
+--until=datestring, --before=datestring::
+ Parses the date string, and outputs corresponding
+ --min-age= parameter for git-rev-list command.
+
+<args>...::
+ Flags and parameters to be parsed.
+
+
+SPECIFYING REVISIONS
+--------------------
+
+A revision parameter typically, but not necessarily, names a
+commit object. They use what is called an 'extended SHA1'
+syntax.
+
+* The full SHA1 object name (40-byte hexadecimal string), or
+ a substring of such that is unique within the repository.
+ E.g. dae86e1950b1277e545cee180551750029cfe735 and dae86e both
+ name the same commit object if there are no other object in
+ your repository whose object name starts with dae86e.
+
+* A symbolic ref name. E.g. 'master' typically means the commit
+ object referenced by $GIT_DIR/refs/heads/master. If you
+ happen to have both heads/master and tags/master, you can
+ explicitly say 'heads/master' to tell git which one you mean.
+
+* A suffix '{caret}' to a revision parameter means the first parent of
+ that commit object. '{caret}<n>' means the <n>th parent (i.e.
+ 'rev{caret}'
+ is equivalent to 'rev{caret}1'). As a special rule,
+ 'rev{caret}0' means the commit itself and is used when 'rev' is the
+ object name of a tag object that refers to a commit object.
+
+* A suffix '~<n>' to a revision parameter means the commit
+ object that is the <n>th generation grand-parent of the named
+ commit object, following only the first parent. I.e. rev~3 is
+ equivalent to rev{caret}{caret}{caret} which is equivalent to\
+ rev{caret}1{caret}1{caret}1.
+
+* A suffix '{caret}' followed by an object type name enclosed in
+ brace pair (e.g. `v0.99.8{caret}\{commit\}`) means the object
+ could be a tag, and dereference the tag recursively until an
+ object of that type is found or the object cannot be
+ dereferenced anymore (in which case, barf). `rev{caret}0`
+ introduced earlier is a short-hand for `rev{caret}\{commit\}`.
+
+* A suffix '{caret}' followed by an empty brace pair
+ (e.g. `v0.99.8{caret}\{\}`) means the object could be a tag,
+ and dereference the tag recursively until a non-tag object is
+ found.
+
+'git-rev-parse' also accepts a prefix '{caret}' to revision parameter,
+which is passed to 'git-rev-list'. Two revision parameters
+concatenated with '..' is a short-hand for writing a range
+between them. I.e. 'r1..r2' is equivalent to saying '{caret}r1 r2'
+
+Here is an illustration, by Jon Loeliger. Both node B and C are
+a commit parents of commit node A. Parent commits are ordered
+left-to-right.
+
+ G H I J
+ \ / \ /
+ D E F
+ \ | /
+ \ | /
+ \|/
+ B C
+ \ /
+ \ /
+ A
+
+ A = = A^0
+ B = A^ = A^1 = A~1
+ C = A^2 = A^2
+ D = A^^ = A^1^1 = A~2
+ E = B^2 = A^^2
+ F = B^3 = A^^3
+ G = A^^^ = A^1^1^1 = A~3
+ H = D^2 = B^^2 = A^^^2 = A~2^2
+ I = F^ = B^3^ = A^^3^
+ J = F^2 = B^3^2 = A^^3^2

+NAME
+----
+git-revert - Revert an existing commit
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-revert' [--edit | --no-edit] [-n] <commit>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Given one existing commit, revert the change the patch introduces, and record a
+new commit that records it. This requires your working tree to be clean (no
+modifications from the HEAD commit).
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<commit>::
+ Commit to revert.
+
+-e|--edit::
+ With this option, `git-revert` will let you edit the commit
+ message prior committing the revert. This is the default if
+ you run the command from a terminal.
+
+--no-edit::
+ With this option, `git-revert` will not start the commit
+ message editor.
+
+-n|--no-commit::
+ Usually the command automatically creates a commit with
+ a commit log message stating which commit was reverted.
+ This flag applies the change necessary to revert the
+ named commit to your working tree, but does not make the
+ commit. In addition, when this option is used, your
+ working tree does not have to match the HEAD commit.
+ The revert is done against the beginning state of your
+ working tree.
++
+This is useful when reverting more than one commits'
+effect to your working tree in a row.

+=========
+
+NAME
+----
+git-rm - Remove files from the working tree and from the index
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-rm' [-f] [-n] [-v] [--] <file>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+A convenience wrapper for git-update-index --remove. For those coming
+from cvs, git-rm provides an operation similar to "cvs rm" or "cvs
+remove".
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<file>...::
+ Files to remove from the index and optionally, from the
+ working tree as well.
+
+-f::
+ Remove files from the working tree as well as from the index.
+
+-n::
+ Don't actually remove the file(s), just show if they exist in
+ the index.
+
+-v::
+ Be verbose.
+
+--::
+ This option can be used to separate command-line options from
+ the list of files, (useful when filenames might be mistaken
+ for command-line options).
+
+
+DISCUSSION
+----------
+
+The list of <file> given to the command is fed to `git-ls-files`
+command to list files that are registered in the index and
+are not ignored/excluded by `$GIT_DIR/info/exclude` file or
+`.gitignore` file in each directory. This means two things:
+
+. You can put the name of a directory on the command line, and the
+ command will remove all files in it and its subdirectories (the
+ directories themselves are never removed from the working tree);
+
+. Giving the name of a file that is not in the index does not
+ remove that file.
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+git-rm Documentation/\\*.txt::
+
+ Removes all `\*.txt` files from the index that are under the
+ `Documentation` directory and any of its subdirectories. The
+ files are not removed from the working tree.
++
+Note that the asterisk `\*` is quoted from the shell in this
+example; this lets the command include the files from
+subdirectories of `Documentation/` directory.
+
+git-rm -f git-*.sh::
+
+ Remove all git-*.sh scripts that are in the index. The files
+ are removed from the index, and (because of the -f option),
+ from the working tree as well. Because this example lets the
+ shell expand the asterisk (i.e. you are listing the files
+ explicitly), it does not remove `subdir/git-foo.sh`.

+git-send-email(1)
+=================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-send-email - Send a collection of patches as emails
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-send-email' [options] <file|directory> [... file|directory]
+
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Takes the patches given on the command line and emails them out.
+
+The header of the email is configurable by command line options. If not
+specified on the command line, the user will be prompted with a ReadLine
+enabled interface to provide the necessary information.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+The options available are:
+
+--cc::
+ Specify a starting "Cc:" value for each email.
+
+--chain-reply-to, --no-chain-reply-to::
+ If this is set, each email will be sent as a reply to the previous
+ email sent. If disabled with "--no-chain-reply-to", all emails after
+ the first will be sent as replies to the first email sent. When using
+ this, it is recommended that the first file given be an overview of the
+ entire patch series.
+ Default is --chain-reply-to
+
+--compose::
+ Use $EDITOR to edit an introductory message for the
+ patch series.
+
+--from::
+ Specify the sender of the emails. This will default to
+ the value GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT, as returned by "git-var -l".
+ The user will still be prompted to confirm this entry.
+
+--in-reply-to::
+ Specify the contents of the first In-Reply-To header.
+ Subsequent emails will refer to the previous email
+ instead of this if --chain-reply-to is set (the default)
+ Only necessary if --compose is also set. If --compose
+ is not set, this will be prompted for.
+
+--no-signed-off-by-cc::
+ Do not add emails foudn in Signed-off-by: lines to the cc list.
+
+--quiet::
+ Make git-send-email less verbose. One line per email should be
+ all that is output.
+
+--smtp-server::
+ If set, specifies the outgoing SMTP server to use. Defaults to
+ localhost.
+
+--subject::
+ Specify the initial subject of the email thread.
+ Only necessary if --compose is also set. If --compose
+ is not set, this will be prompted for.
+
+--suppress-from::
+ Do not add the From: address to the cc: list, if it shows up in a From:
+ line.
+
+--to::
+ Specify the primary recipient of the emails generated.
+ Generally, this will be the upstream maintainer of the
+ project involved.

+git-send-pack(1)
+================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-send-pack - Push missing objects packed
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-send-pack' [--all] [--force] [--exec=<git-receive-pack>] [<host>:]<directory> [<ref>...]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Invokes 'git-receive-pack' on a possibly remote repository, and
+updates it from the current repository, sending named refs.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--exec=<git-receive-pack>::
+ Path to the 'git-receive-pack' program on the remote
+ end. Sometimes useful when pushing to a remote
+ repository over ssh, and you do not have the program in
+ a directory on the default $PATH.
+
+--all::
+ Instead of explicitly specifying which refs to update,
+ update all refs that locally exist.
+
+--force::
+ Usually, the command refuses to update a remote ref that
+ is not an ancestor of the local ref used to overwrite it.
+ This flag disables the check. What this means is that
+ the remote repository can lose commits; use it with
+ care.
+
+<host>::
+ A remote host to house the repository. When this
+ part is specified, 'git-receive-pack' is invoked via
+ ssh.
+
+<directory>::
+ The repository to update.
+
+<ref>...:
+ The remote refs to update.
+
+
+Specifying the Refs
+-------------------
+
+There are three ways to specify which refs to update on the
+remote end.
+
+With '--all' flag, all refs that exist locally are transfered to
+the remote side. You cannot specify any '<ref>' if you use
+this flag.
+
+Without '--all' and without any '<ref>', the refs that exist
+both on the local side and on the remote side are updated.
+
+When one or more '<ref>' are specified explicitly, it can be either a
+single pattern, or a pair of such pattern separated by a colon
+":" (this means that a ref name cannot have a colon in it). A
+single pattern '<name>' is just a shorthand for '<name>:<name>'.
+
+Each pattern pair consists of the source side (before the colon)
+and the destination side (after the colon). The ref to be
+pushed is determined by finding a match that matches the source
+side, and where it is pushed is determined by using the
+destination side.
+
+ - It is an error if <src> does not match exactly one of the
+ local refs.
+
+ - It is an error if <dst> matches more than one remote refs.
+
+ - If <dst> does not match any remote ref, either
+
+ * it has to start with "refs/"; <dst> is used as the
+ destination literally in this case.
+
+ * <src> == <dst> and the ref that matched the <src> must not
+ exist in the set of remote refs; the ref matched <src>
+ locally is used as the name of the destination.
+
+Without '--force', the <src> ref is stored at the remote only if
+<dst> does not exist, or <dst> is a proper subset (i.e. an
+ancestor) of <src>. This check, known as "fast forward check",
+is performed in order to avoid accidentally overwriting the
+remote ref and lose other peoples' commits from there.
+
+With '--force', the fast forward check is disabled for all refs.
+
+Optionally, a <ref> parameter can be prefixed with a plus '+' sign
+to disable the fast-forward check only on that ref.

+git-show-branch(1)
+==================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-show-branch - Show branches and their commits
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-show-branch' [--all] [--heads] [--tags] [--topo-order] [--current]
+ [--more=<n> | --list | --independent | --merge-base]
+ [--no-name | --sha1-name] [<rev> | <glob>]...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+Shows the commit ancestry graph starting from the commits named
+with <rev>s or <globs>s (or all refs under $GIT_DIR/refs/heads
+and/or $GIT_DIR/refs/tags) semi-visually.
+
+It cannot show more than 29 branches and commits at a time.
+
+It uses `showbranch.default` multi-valued configuration items if
+no <rev> nor <glob> is given on the command line.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<rev>::
+ Arbitrary extended SHA1 expression (see `git-rev-parse`)
+ that typically names a branch HEAD or a tag.
+
+<glob>::
+ A glob pattern that matches branch or tag names under
+ $GIT_DIR/refs. For example, if you have many topic
+ branches under $GIT_DIR/refs/heads/topic, giving
+ `topic/*` would show all of them.
+
+--all --heads --tags::
+ Show all refs under $GIT_DIR/refs, $GIT_DIR/refs/heads,
+ and $GIT_DIR/refs/tags, respectively.
+
+--current::
+ With this option, the command includes the current
+ branch to the list of revs to be shown when it is not
+ given on the command line.
+
+--topo-order::
+ By default, the branches and their commits are shown in
+ reverse chronological order. This option makes them
+ appear in topological order (i.e., descendant commits
+ are shown before their parents).
+
+--more=<n>::
+ Usually the command stops output upon showing the commit
+ that is the common ancestor of all the branches. This
+ flag tells the command to go <n> more common commits
+ beyond that. When <n> is negative, display only the
+ <reference>s given, without showing the commit ancestry
+ tree.
+
+--list::
+ Synonym to `--more=-1`
+
+--merge-base::
+ Instead of showing the commit list, just act like the
+ 'git-merge-base -a' command, except that it can accept
+ more than two heads.
+
+--independent::
+ Among the <reference>s given, display only the ones that
+ cannot be reached from any other <reference>.
+
+--no-name::
+ Do not show naming strings for each commit.
+
+--sha1-name::
+ Instead of naming the commits using the path to reach
+ them from heads (e.g. "master~2" to mean the grandparent
+ of "master"), name them with the unique prefix of their
+ object names.
+
+Note that --more, --list, --independent and --merge-base options
+are mutually exclusive.
+
+
+OUTPUT
+------
+Given N <references>, the first N lines are the one-line
+description from their commit message. The branch head that is
+pointed at by $GIT_DIR/HEAD is prefixed with an asterisk `*`
+character while other heads are prefixed with a `!` character.
+
+Following these N lines, one-line log for each commit is
+displayed, indented N places. If a commit is on the I-th
+branch, the I-th indentation character shows a `+` sign;
+otherwise it shows a space. Merge commits are denoted by
+a `-` sign. Each commit shows a short name that
+can be used as an extended SHA1 to name that commit.
+
+The following example shows three branches, "master", "fixes"
+and "mhf":
+
+------------------------------------------------
+$ git show-branch master fixes mhf
+* [master] Add 'git show-branch'.
+ ! [fixes] Introduce "reset type" flag to "git reset"
+ ! [mhf] Allow "+remote:local" refspec to cause --force when fetching.
+---
+ + [mhf] Allow "+remote:local" refspec to cause --force when fetching.
+ + [mhf~1] Use git-octopus when pulling more than one heads.
+ + [fixes] Introduce "reset type" flag to "git reset"
+ + [mhf~2] "git fetch --force".
+ + [mhf~3] Use .git/remote/origin, not .git/branches/origin.
+ + [mhf~4] Make "git pull" and "git fetch" default to origin
+ + [mhf~5] Infamous 'octopus merge'
+ + [mhf~6] Retire git-parse-remote.
+ + [mhf~7] Multi-head fetch.
+ + [mhf~8] Start adding the $GIT_DIR/remotes/ support.
+*++ [master] Add 'git show-branch'.
+------------------------------------------------
+
+These three branches all forked from a common commit, [master],
+whose commit message is "Add 'git show-branch'. "fixes" branch
+adds one commit 'Introduce "reset type"'. "mhf" branch has many
+other commits. The current branch is "master".
+
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+
+If you keep your primary branches immediately under
+`$GIT_DIR/refs/heads`, and topic branches in subdirectories of
+it, having the following in the configuration file may help:
+
+------------
+[showbranch]
+ default = --topo-order
+ default = heads/*
+
+------------
+
+With this, `git show-branch` without extra parameters would show
+only the primary branches. In addition, if you happen to be on
+your topic branch, it is shown as well.

+git-svnimport(1)
+================
+v0.1, July 2005
+
+NAME
+----
+git-svnimport - Import a SVN repository into git
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-svnimport' [ -o <branch-for-HEAD> ] [ -h ] [ -v ] [ -d | -D ]
+ [ -C <GIT_repository> ] [ -i ] [ -u ] [-l limit_rev]
+ [ -b branch_subdir ] [ -T trunk_subdir ] [ -t tag_subdir ]
+ [ -s start_chg ] [ -m ] [ -r ] [ -M regex ]
+ [ -I <ignorefile_name> ] [ -A <author_file> ]
+ <SVN_repository_URL> [ <path> ]
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Imports a SVN repository into git. It will either create a new
+repository, or incrementally import into an existing one.
+
+SVN access is done by the SVN::Perl module.
+
+git-svnimport assumes that SVN repositories are organized into one
+"trunk" directory where the main development happens, "branch/FOO"
+directories for branches, and "/tags/FOO" directories for tags.
+Other subdirectories are ignored.
+
+git-svnimport creates a file ".git/svn2git", which is required for
+incremental SVN imports.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-C <target-dir>::
+ The GIT repository to import to. If the directory doesn't
+ exist, it will be created. Default is the current directory.
+
+-s <start_rev>::
+ Start importing at this SVN change number. The default is 1.
++
+When importing incrementally, you might need to edit the .git/svn2git file.
+
+-i::
+ Import-only: don't perform a checkout after importing. This option
+ ensures the working directory and index remain untouched and will
+ not create them if they do not exist.
+
+-T <trunk_subdir>::
+ Name the SVN trunk. Default "trunk".
+
+-t <tag_subdir>::
+ Name the SVN subdirectory for tags. Default "tags".
+
+-b <branch_subdir>::
+ Name the SVN subdirectory for branches. Default "branches".
+
+-o <branch-for-HEAD>::
+ The 'trunk' branch from SVN is imported to the 'origin' branch within
+ the git repository. Use this option if you want to import into a
+ different branch.
+
+-r::
+ Prepend 'rX: ' to commit messages, where X is the imported
+ subversion revision.
+
+-I <ignorefile_name>::
+ Import the svn:ignore directory property to files with this
+ name in each directory. (The Subversion and GIT ignore
+ syntaxes are similar enough that using the Subversion patterns
+ directly with "-I .gitignore" will almost always just work.)
+
+-A <author_file>::
+ Read a file with lines on the form
++
+------
+ username = User's Full Name <email@addr.es>
+
+------
++
+and use "User's Full Name <email@addr.es>" as the GIT
+author and committer for Subversion commits made by
+"username". If encountering a commit made by a user not in the
+list, abort.
++
+For convenience, this data is saved to $GIT_DIR/svn-authors
+each time the -A option is provided, and read from that same
+file each time git-svnimport is run with an existing GIT
+repository without -A.
+
+-m::
+ Attempt to detect merges based on the commit message. This option
+ will enable default regexes that try to capture the name source
+ branch name from the commit message.
+
+-M <regex>::
+ Attempt to detect merges based on the commit message with a custom
+ regex. It can be used with -m to also see the default regexes.
+ You must escape forward slashes.
+
+-l <max_rev>::
+ Specify a maximum revision number to pull.
+
+ Formerly, this option controlled how many revisions to pull,
+ due to SVN memory leaks. (These have been worked around.)
+
+-v::
+ Verbosity: let 'svnimport' report what it is doing.
+
+-d::
+ Use direct HTTP requests if possible. The "<path>" argument is used
+ only for retrieving the SVN logs; the path to the contents is
+ included in the SVN log.
+
+-D::
+ Use direct HTTP requests if possible. The "<path>" argument is used
+ for retrieving the logs, as well as for the contents.
++
+There's no safe way to automatically find out which of these options to
+use, so you need to try both. Usually, the one that's wrong will die
+with a 40x error pretty quickly.
+
+<SVN_repository_URL>::
+ The URL of the SVN module you want to import. For local
+ repositories, use "file:///absolute/path".
++
+If you're using the "-d" or "-D" option, this is the URL of the SVN
+repository itself; it usually ends in "/svn".
+
+<path>::
+ The path to the module you want to check out.
+
+-h::
+ Print a short usage message and exit.
+
+OUTPUT
+------
+If '-v' is specified, the script reports what it is doing.
+
+Otherwise, success is indicated the Unix way, i.e. by simply exiting with
+a zero exit status.

+git-symbolic-ref(1)
+===================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-symbolic-ref - read and modify symbolic refs
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-symbolic-ref' <name> [<ref>]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Given one argument, reads which branch head the given symbolic
+ref refers to and outputs its path, relative to the `.git/`
+directory. Typically you would give `HEAD` as the <name>
+argument to see on which branch your working tree is on.
+
+Give two arguments, create or update a symbolic ref <name> to
+point at the given branch <ref>.
+
+Traditionally, `.git/HEAD` is a symlink pointing at
+`refs/heads/master`. When we want to switch to another branch,
+we did `ln -sf refs/heads/newbranch .git/HEAD`, and when we want
+to find out which branch we are on, we did `readlink .git/HEAD`.
+This was fine, and internally that is what still happens by
+default, but on platforms that do not have working symlinks,
+or that do not have the `readlink(1)` command, this was a bit
+cumbersome. On some platforms, `ln -sf` does not even work as
+advertised (horrors).
+
+A symbolic ref can be a regular file that stores a string that
+begins with `ref: refs/`. For example, your `.git/HEAD` *can*
+be a regular file whose contents is `ref: refs/heads/master`.
+This can be used on a filesystem that does not support symbolic
+links. Instead of doing `readlink .git/HEAD`, `git-symbolic-ref
+HEAD` can be used to find out which branch we are on. To point
+the HEAD to `newbranch`, instead of `ln -sf refs/heads/newbranch
+.git/HEAD`, `git-symbolic-ref HEAD refs/heads/newbranch` can be
+used.
+
+Currently, .git/HEAD uses a regular file symbolic ref on Cygwin,
+and everywhere else it is implemented as a symlink. This can be
+changed at compilation time.

+git-tag(1)
+==========
+
+NAME
+----
+git-tag - Create a tag object signed with GPG
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-tag' [-a | -s | -u <key-id>] [-f | -d] [-m <msg>] <name> [<head>]
+'git-tag' -l [<pattern>]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Adds a 'tag' reference in `.git/refs/tags/`
+
+Unless `-f` is given, the tag must not yet exist in
+`.git/refs/tags/` directory.
+
+If one of `-a`, `-s`, or `-u <key-id>` is passed, the command
+creates a 'tag' object, and requires the tag message. Unless
+`-m <msg>` is given, an editor is started for the user to type
+in the tag message.
+
+Otherwise just the SHA1 object name of the commit object is
+written (i.e. a lightweight tag).
+
+A GnuPG signed tag object will be created when `-s` or `-u
+<key-id>` is used. When `-u <key-id>` is not used, the
+committer identity for the current user is used to find the
+GnuPG key for signing.
+
+`-d <tag>` deletes the tag.
+
+`-l <pattern>` lists tags that match the given pattern (or all
+if no pattern is given).
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-a::
+ Make an unsigned, annotated tag object
+
+-s::
+ Make a GPG-signed tag, using the default e-mail address's key
+
+-u <key-id>::
+ Make a GPG-signed tag, using the given key
+
+-f::
+ Replace an existing tag with the given name (instead of failing)
+
+-d::
+ Delete an existing tag with the given name
+
+-l <pattern>::
+ List tags that match the given pattern (or all if no pattern is given).
+
+-m <msg>::
+ Use the given tag message (instead of prompting)

+===============
+
+NAME
+----
+git-tar-tree - Creates a tar archive of the files in the named tree
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-tar-tree' <tree-ish> [ <base> ]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Creates a tar archive containing the tree structure for the named tree.
+When <base> is specified it is added as a leading path to the files in the
+generated tar archive.
+
+git-tar-tree behaves differently when given a tree ID versus when given
+a commit ID or tag ID. In the first case the current time is used as
+modification time of each file in the archive. In the latter case the
+commit time as recorded in the referenced commit object is used instead.
+Additionally the commit ID is stored in a global extended pax header.
+It can be extracted using git-get-tar-commit-id.

+A short git tools survey
+========================
+
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+Apart from git contrib/ area there are some others third-party tools
+you may want to look.
+
+This document presents a brief summary of each tool and the corresponding
+link.
+
+
+Alternative/Augmentative Procelains
+-----------------------------------
+
+ - *Cogito* (http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/cogito/)
+
+ Cogito is a version control system layered on top of the git tree history
+ storage system. It aims at seamless user interface and ease of use,
+ providing generally smoother user experience than the "raw" Core GIT
+ itself and indeed many other version control systems.
+
+
+ - *pg* (http://www.spearce.org/category/projects/scm/pg/)
+
+ pg is a shell script wrapper around GIT to help the user manage a set of
+ patches to files. pg is somewhat like quilt or StGIT, but it does have a
+ slightly different feature set.
+
+
+ - *StGit* (http://www.procode.org/stgit/)
+
+ Stacked GIT provides a quilt-like patch management functionality in the
+ GIT environment. You can easily manage your patches in the scope of GIT
+ until they get merged upstream.
+
+
+History Viewers
+---------------
+
+ - *gitk* (shipped with git-core)
+
+ gitk is a simple TK GUI for browsing history of GIT repositories easily.
+
+
+ - *gitview* (contrib/)
+
+ gitview is a GTK based repository browser for git
+
+
+ - *gitweb* (ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/gitweb/)
+
+ GITweb provides full-fledged web interface for GIT repositories.
+
+
+ - *qgit* (http://digilander.libero.it/mcostalba/)
+
+ QGit is a git/StGIT GUI viewer built on Qt/C++. QGit could be used
+ to browse history and directory tree, view annotated files, commit
+ changes cherry picking single files or applying patches.
+ Currently it is the fastest and most feature rich among the git
+ viewers and commit tools.
+
+
+
+Foreign SCM interface
+---------------------
+
+ - *git-svn* (contrib/)
+
+ git-svn is a simple conduit for changesets between a single Subversion
+ branch and git.
+
+
+ - *quilt2git / git2quilt* (http://home-tj.org/wiki/index.php/Misc)
+
+ These utilities convert patch series in a quilt repository and commit
+ series in git back and forth.
+
+
+Others
+------
+
+ - *(h)gct* (http://www.cyd.liu.se/users/~freku045/gct/)
+
+ Commit Tool or (h)gct is a GUI enabled commit tool for git and
+ Mercurial (hg). It allows the user to view diffs, select which files
+ to committed (or ignored / reverted) write commit messages and
+ perform the commit itself.
+
+ - *git.el* (contrib/)
+
+ This is an Emacs interface for git. The user interface is modeled on
+ pcl-cvs. It has been developed on Emacs 21 and will probably need some
+ tweaking to work on XEmacs.

+git-update-index(1)
+===================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-update-index - Modifies the index or directory cache
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'git-update-index'
+ [--add] [--remove | --force-remove] [--replace]
+ [--refresh [-q] [--unmerged] [--ignore-missing]]
+ [--cacheinfo <mode> <object> <file>]\*
+ [--chmod=(+|-)x]
+ [--assume-unchanged | --no-assume-unchanged]
+ [--really-refresh]
+ [--info-only] [--index-info]
+ [-z] [--stdin]
+ [--verbose]
+ [--] [<file>]\*
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Modifies the index or directory cache. Each file mentioned is updated
+into the index and any 'unmerged' or 'needs updating' state is
+cleared.
+
+The way "git-update-index" handles files it is told about can be modified
+using the various options:
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--add::
+ If a specified file isn't in the index already then it's
+ added.
+ Default behaviour is to ignore new files.
+
+--remove::
+ If a specified file is in the index but is missing then it's
+ removed.
+ Default behaviour is to ignore removed file.
+
+--refresh::
+ Looks at the current index and checks to see if merges or
+ updates are needed by checking stat() information.
+
+-q::
+ Quiet. If --refresh finds that the index needs an update, the
+ default behavior is to error out. This option makes
+ git-update-index continue anyway.
+
+--unmerged::
+ If --refresh finds unmerged changes in the index, the default
+ behavior is to error out. This option makes git-update-index
+ continue anyway.
+
+--ignore-missing::
+ Ignores missing files during a --refresh
+
+--cacheinfo <mode> <object> <path>::
+ Directly insert the specified info into the index.
+
+--index-info::
+ Read index information from stdin.
+
+--chmod=(+|-)x::
+ Set the execute permissions on the updated files.
+
+--assume-unchanged, --no-assume-unchanged::
+ When these flags are specified, the object name recorded
+ for the paths are not updated. Instead, these options
+ sets and unsets the "assume unchanged" bit for the
+ paths. When the "assume unchanged" bit is on, git stops
+ checking the working tree files for possible
+ modifications, so you need to manually unset the bit to
+ tell git when you change the working tree file. This is
+ sometimes helpful when working with a big project on a
+ filesystem that has very slow lstat(2) system call
+ (e.g. cifs).
+
+--info-only::
+ Do not create objects in the object database for all
+ <file> arguments that follow this flag; just insert
+ their object IDs into the index.
+
+--force-remove::
+ Remove the file from the index even when the working directory
+ still has such a file. (Implies --remove.)
+
+--replace::
+ By default, when a file `path` exists in the index,
+ git-update-index refuses an attempt to add `path/file`.
+ Similarly if a file `path/file` exists, a file `path`
+ cannot be added. With --replace flag, existing entries
+ that conflicts with the entry being added are
+ automatically removed with warning messages.
+
+--stdin::
+ Instead of taking list of paths from the command line,
+ read list of paths from the standard input. Paths are
+ separated by LF (i.e. one path per line) by default.
+
+--verbose::
+ Report what is being added and removed from index.
+
+-z::
+ Only meaningful with `--stdin`; paths are separated with
+ NUL character instead of LF.
+
+--::
+ Do not interpret any more arguments as options.
+
+<file>::
+ Files to act on.
+ Note that files beginning with '.' are discarded. This includes
+ `./file` and `dir/./file`. If you don't want this, then use
+ cleaner names.
+ The same applies to directories ending '/' and paths with '//'
+
+Using --refresh
+---------------
+'--refresh' does not calculate a new sha1 file or bring the index
+up-to-date for mode/content changes. But what it *does* do is to
+"re-match" the stat information of a file with the index, so that you
+can refresh the index for a file that hasn't been changed but where
+the stat entry is out of date.
+
+For example, you'd want to do this after doing a "git-read-tree", to link
+up the stat index details with the proper files.
+
+Using --cacheinfo or --info-only
+--------------------------------
+'--cacheinfo' is used to register a file that is not in the
+current working directory. This is useful for minimum-checkout
+merging.
+
+To pretend you have a file with mode and sha1 at path, say:
+
+----------------
+$ git-update-index --cacheinfo mode sha1 path
+----------------
+
+'--info-only' is used to register files without placing them in the object
+database. This is useful for status-only repositories.
+
+Both '--cacheinfo' and '--info-only' behave similarly: the index is updated
+but the object database isn't. '--cacheinfo' is useful when the object is
+in the database but the file isn't available locally. '--info-only' is
+useful when the file is available, but you do not wish to update the
+object database.
+
+
+Using --index-info
+------------------
+
+`--index-info` is a more powerful mechanism that lets you feed
+multiple entry definitions from the standard input, and designed
+specifically for scripts. It can take inputs of three formats:
+
+ . mode SP sha1 TAB path
++
+The first format is what "git-apply --index-info"
+reports, and used to reconstruct a partial tree
+that is used for phony merge base tree when falling
+back on 3-way merge.
+
+ . mode SP type SP sha1 TAB path
++
+The second format is to stuff git-ls-tree output
+into the index file.
+
+ . mode SP sha1 SP stage TAB path
++
+This format is to put higher order stages into the
+index file and matches git-ls-files --stage output.
+
+To place a higher stage entry to the index, the path should
+first be removed by feeding a mode=0 entry for the path, and
+then feeding necessary input lines in the third format.
+
+For example, starting with this index:
+
+------------
+$ git ls-files -s
+100644 8a1218a1024a212bb3db30becd860315f9f3ac52 0 frotz
+------------
+
+you can feed the following input to `--index-info`:
+
+------------
+$ git update-index --index-info
+0 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 frotz
+100644 8a1218a1024a212bb3db30becd860315f9f3ac52 1 frotz
+100755 8a1218a1024a212bb3db30becd860315f9f3ac52 2 frotz
+------------
+
+The first line of the input feeds 0 as the mode to remove the
+path; the SHA1 does not matter as long as it is well formatted.
+Then the second and third line feeds stage 1 and stage 2 entries
+for that path. After the above, we would end up with this:
+
+------------
+$ git ls-files -s
+100644 8a1218a1024a212bb3db30becd860315f9f3ac52 1 frotz
+100755 8a1218a1024a212bb3db30becd860315f9f3ac52 2 frotz
+------------
+
+
+Using "assume unchanged" bit
+----------------------------
+
+Many operations in git depend on your filesystem to have an
+efficient `lstat(2)` implementation, so that `st_mtime`
+information for working tree files can be cheaply checked to see
+if the file contents have changed from the version recorded in
+the index file. Unfortunately, some filesystems have
+inefficient `lstat(2)`. If your filesystem is one of them, you
+can set "assume unchanged" bit to paths you have not changed to
+cause git not to do this check. Note that setting this bit on a
+path does not mean git will check the contents of the file to
+see if it has changed -- it makes git to omit any checking and
+assume it has *not* changed. When you make changes to working
+tree files, you have to explicitly tell git about it by dropping
+"assume unchanged" bit, either before or after you modify them.
+
+In order to set "assume unchanged" bit, use `--assume-unchanged`
+option. To unset, use `--no-assume-unchanged`.
+
+The command looks at `core.ignorestat` configuration variable. When
+this is true, paths updated with `git-update-index paths...` and
+paths updated with other git commands that update both index and
+working tree (e.g. `git-apply --index`, `git-checkout-index -u`,
+and `git-read-tree -u`) are automatically marked as "assume
+unchanged". Note that "assume unchanged" bit is *not* set if
+`git-update-index --refresh` finds the working tree file matches
+the index (use `git-update-index --really-refresh` if you want
+to mark them as "assume unchanged").
+
+
+Examples
+--------
+To update and refresh only the files already checked out:
+
+----------------
+$ git-checkout-index -n -f -a && git-update-index --ignore-missing --refresh
+----------------
+
+On an inefficient filesystem with `core.ignorestat` set:
+
+------------
+$ git update-index --really-refresh <1>
+$ git update-index --no-assume-unchanged foo.c <2>
+$ git diff --name-only <3>
+$ edit foo.c
+$ git diff --name-only <4>
+M foo.c
+$ git update-index foo.c <5>
+$ git diff --name-only <6>
+$ edit foo.c
+$ git diff --name-only <7>
+$ git update-index --no-assume-unchanged foo.c <8>
+$ git diff --name-only <9>
+M foo.c
+
+<1> forces lstat(2) to set "assume unchanged" bits for paths
+ that match index.
+<2> mark the path to be edited.
+<3> this does lstat(2) and finds index matches the path.
+<4> this does lstat(2) and finds index does not match the path.
+<5> registering the new version to index sets "assume unchanged" bit.
+<6> and it is assumed unchanged.
+<7> even after you edit it.
+<8> you can tell about the change after the fact.
+<9> now it checks with lstat(2) and finds it has been changed.
+------------
+
+
+Configuration
+-------------
+
+The command honors `core.filemode` configuration variable. If
+your repository is on an filesystem whose executable bits are
+unreliable, this should be set to 'false' (see gitlink:git-repo-config[1]).
+This causes the command to ignore differences in file modes recorded
+in the index and the file mode on the filesystem if they differ only on
+executable bit. On such an unfortunate filesystem, you may
+need to use `git-update-index --chmod=`.
+
+The command looks at `core.ignorestat` configuration variable. See
+'Using "assume unchanged" bit' section above.

+git-update-ref(1)
+=================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-update-ref - update the object name stored in a ref safely
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-update-ref' <ref> <newvalue> [<oldvalue>]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Given two arguments, stores the <newvalue> in the <ref>, possibly
+dereferencing the symbolic refs. E.g. `git-update-ref HEAD
+<newvalue>` updates the current branch head to the new object.
+
+Given three arguments, stores the <newvalue> in the <ref>,
+possibly dereferencing the symbolic refs, after verifying that
+the current value of the <ref> matches <oldvalue>.
+E.g. `git-update-ref refs/heads/master <newvalue> <oldvalue>`
+updates the master branch head to <newvalue> only if its current
+value is <oldvalue>.
+
+It also allows a "ref" file to be a symbolic pointer to another
+ref file by starting with the four-byte header sequence of
+"ref:".
+
+More importantly, it allows the update of a ref file to follow
+these symbolic pointers, whether they are symlinks or these
+"regular file symbolic refs". It follows *real* symlinks only
+if they start with "refs/": otherwise it will just try to read
+them and update them as a regular file (i.e. it will allow the
+filesystem to follow them, but will overwrite such a symlink to
+somewhere else with a regular filename).
+
+In general, using
+
+ git-update-ref HEAD "$head"
+
+should be a _lot_ safer than doing
+
+ echo "$head" > "$GIT_DIR/HEAD"
+
+both from a symlink following standpoint *and* an error checking
+standpoint. The "refs/" rule for symlinks means that symlinks
+that point to "outside" the tree are safe: they'll be followed
+for reading but not for writing (so we'll never write through a
+ref symlink to some other tree, if you have copied a whole
+archive by creating a symlink tree).

+git-whatchanged(1)
+==================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-whatchanged - Show logs with difference each commit introduces
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-whatchanged' <option>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Shows commit logs and diff output each commit introduces. The
+command internally invokes 'git-rev-list' piped to
+'git-diff-tree', and takes command line options for both of
+these commands.
+
+This manual page describes only the most frequently used options.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-p::
+ Show textual diffs, instead of the git internal diff
+ output format that is useful only to tell the changed
+ paths and their nature of changes.
+
+--max-count=<n>::
+ Limit output to <n> commits.
+
+<since>..<until>::
+ Limit output to between the two named commits (bottom
+ exclusive, top inclusive).
+
+-r::
+ Show git internal diff output, but for the whole tree,
+ not just the top level.
+
+--pretty=<format>::
+ Controls the output format for the commit logs.
+ <format> can be one of 'raw', 'medium', 'short', 'full',
+ and 'oneline'.
+
+-m::
+ By default, differences for merge commits are not shown.
+ With this flag, show differences to that commit from all
+ of its parents.
++
+However, it is not very useful in general, although it
+*is* useful on a file-by-file basis.
+
+Examples
+--------
+git-whatchanged -p v2.6.12.. include/scsi drivers/scsi::
+
+ Show as patches the commits since version 'v2.6.12' that changed
+ any file in the include/scsi or drivers/scsi subdirectories
+
+git-whatchanged --since="2 weeks ago" -- gitk::
+
+ Show the changes during the last two weeks to the file 'gitk'.
+ The "--" is necessary to avoid confusion with the *branch* named
+ 'gitk'

+git-write-tree(1)
+=================
+
+NAME
+----
+git-write-tree - Creates a tree object from the current index
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-write-tree' [--missing-ok]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Creates a tree object using the current index.
+
+The index must be in a fully merged state.
+
+Conceptually, `git-write-tree` sync()s the current index contents
+into a set of tree files.
+In order to have that match what is actually in your directory right
+now, you need to have done a `git-update-index` phase before you did the
+`git-write-tree`.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--missing-ok::
+ Normally `git-write-tree` ensures that the objects referenced by the
+ directory exist in the object database. This option disables this
+ check.

+======
+
+NAME
+----
+git - the stupid content tracker
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git' [--version] [--exec-path[=GIT_EXEC_PATH]] [--help] COMMAND [ARGS]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Git is a fast, scalable, distributed revision control system with an
+unusually rich command set that provides both high-level operations
+and full access to internals.
+
+See this link:tutorial.html[tutorial] to get started, then see
+link:everyday.html[Everyday Git] for a useful minimum set of commands, and
+"man git-commandname" for documentation of each command. CVS users may
+also want to read link:cvs-migration.html[CVS migration].
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--version::
+ Prints the git suite version that the 'git' program came from.
+
+--help::
+ Prints the synopsis and a list of the most commonly used
+ commands. If a git command is named this option will bring up
+ the man-page for that command. If the option '--all' or '-a' is
+ given then all available commands are printed.
+
+--exec-path::
+ Path to wherever your core git programs are installed.
+ This can also be controlled by setting the GIT_EXEC_PATH
+ environment variable. If no path is given 'git' will print
+ the current setting and then exit.
+
+
+FURTHER DOCUMENTATION
+---------------------
+
+See the references above to get started using git. The following is
+probably more detail than necessary for a first-time user.
+
+The <<Discussion,Discussion>> section below and the
+link:core-tutorial.html[Core tutorial] both provide introductions to the
+underlying git architecture.
+
+See also the link:howto-index.html[howto] documents for some useful
+examples.
+
+GIT COMMANDS
+------------
+
+We divide git into high level ("porcelain") commands and low level
+("plumbing") commands.
+
+Low-level commands (plumbing)
+-----------------------------
+
+Although git includes its
+own porcelain layer, its low-level commands are sufficient to support
+development of alternative porcelains. Developers of such porcelains
+might start by reading about gitlink:git-update-index[1] and
+gitlink:git-read-tree[1].
+
+We divide the low-level commands into commands that manipulate objects (in
+the repository, index, and working tree), commands that interrogate and
+compare objects, and commands that move objects and references between
+repositories.
+
+Manipulation commands

+
+
+Configuration Mechanism
+-----------------------
+
+Starting from 0.99.9 (actually mid 0.99.8.GIT), `.git/config` file
+is used to hold per-repository configuration options. It is a
+simple text file modelled after `.ini` format familiar to some
+people. Here is an example:
+
+------------
+#
+# A '#' or ';' character indicates a comment.
+#
+
+; core variables
+[core]
+ ; Don't trust file modes
+ filemode = false
+
+; user identity
+[user]
+ name = "Junio C Hamano"
+ email = "junkio@twinsun.com"
+
+------------
+
+Various commands read from the configuration file and adjust
+their operation accordingly.
+
+
+Identifier Terminology
+----------------------
+<object>::
+ Indicates the object name for any type of object.
+
+<blob>::
+ Indicates a blob object name.
+
+<tree>::
+ Indicates a tree object name.
+
+<commit>::
+ Indicates a commit object name.
+
+<tree-ish>::
+ Indicates a tree, commit or tag object name. A
+ command that takes a <tree-ish> argument ultimately wants to
+ operate on a <tree> object but automatically dereferences
+ <commit> and <tag> objects that point at a <tree>.
+
+<type>::
+ Indicates that an object type is required.
+ Currently one of: `blob`, `tree`, `commit`, or `tag`.
+
+<file>::
+ Indicates a filename - almost always relative to the
+ root of the tree structure `GIT_INDEX_FILE` describes.
+
+Symbolic Identifiers
+--------------------
+Any git command accepting any <object> can also use the following
+symbolic notation:
+
+HEAD::
+ indicates the head of the current branch (i.e. the
+ contents of `$GIT_DIR/HEAD`).
+
+<tag>::
+ a valid tag 'name'
+ (i.e. the contents of `$GIT_DIR/refs/tags/<tag>`).
+
+<head>::
+ a valid head 'name'
+ (i.e. the contents of `$GIT_DIR/refs/heads/<head>`).
+
+
+File/Directory Structure
+------------------------
+
+Please see link:repository-layout.html[repository layout] document.
+
+Read link:hooks.html[hooks] for more details about each hook.
+
+Higher level SCMs may provide and manage additional information in the
+`$GIT_DIR`.
+
+
+Terminology
+-----------
+Please see link:glossary.html[glossary] document.
+
+
+Environment Variables
+---------------------
+Various git commands use the following environment variables:
+
+The git Repository
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+These environment variables apply to 'all' core git commands. Nb: it
+is worth noting that they may be used/overridden by SCMS sitting above
+git so take care if using Cogito etc.
+
+'GIT_INDEX_FILE'::
+ This environment allows the specification of an alternate
+ index file. If not specified, the default of `$GIT_DIR/index`
+ is used.
+
+'GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY'::
+ If the object storage directory is specified via this
+ environment variable then the sha1 directories are created
+ underneath - otherwise the default `$GIT_DIR/objects`
+ directory is used.
+
+'GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES'::
+ Due to the immutable nature of git objects, old objects can be
+ archived into shared, read-only directories. This variable
+ specifies a ":" separated list of git object directories which
+ can be used to search for git objects. New objects will not be
+ written to these directories.
+
+'GIT_DIR'::
+ If the 'GIT_DIR' environment variable is set then it
+ specifies a path to use instead of the default `.git`
+ for the base of the repository.
+
+git Commits

+'GIT_AUTHOR_NAME'::
+'GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL'::
+'GIT_AUTHOR_DATE'::
+'GIT_COMMITTER_NAME'::
+'GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL'::

+object::
+ The unit of storage in git. It is uniquely identified by
+ the SHA1 of its contents. Consequently, an object can not
+ be changed.
+
+object name::
+ The unique identifier of an object. The hash of the object's contents
+ using the Secure Hash Algorithm 1 and usually represented by the 40
+ character hexadecimal encoding of the hash of the object (possibly
+ followed by a white space).
+
+SHA1::
+ Synonym for object name.
+
+object identifier::
+ Synonym for object name.
+
+hash::
+ In git's context, synonym to object name.
+
+object database::
+ Stores a set of "objects", and an individual object is identified
+ by its object name. The objects usually live in `$GIT_DIR/objects/`.
+
+blob object::
+ Untyped object, e.g. the contents of a file.
+
+tree object::
+ An object containing a list of file names and modes along with refs
+ to the associated blob and/or tree objects. A tree is equivalent
+ to a directory.
+
+tree::
+ Either a working tree, or a tree object together with the
+ dependent blob and tree objects (i.e. a stored representation
+ of a working tree).
+
+DAG::
+ Directed acyclic graph. The commit objects form a directed acyclic
+ graph, because they have parents (directed), and the graph of commit
+ objects is acyclic (there is no chain which begins and ends with the
+ same object).
+
+index::
+ A collection of files with stat information, whose contents are
+ stored as objects. The index is a stored version of your working
+ tree. Truth be told, it can also contain a second, and even a third
+ version of a working tree, which are used when merging.
+
+index entry::
+ The information regarding a particular file, stored in the index.
+ An index entry can be unmerged, if a merge was started, but not
+ yet finished (i.e. if the index contains multiple versions of
+ that file).
+
+unmerged index:
+ An index which contains unmerged index entries.
+
+cache::
+ Obsolete for: index.
+
+working tree::
+ The set of files and directories currently being worked on,
+ i.e. you can work in your working tree without using git at all.
+
+directory::
+ The list you get with "ls" :-)
+
+revision::
+ A particular state of files and directories which was stored in
+ the object database. It is referenced by a commit object.
+
+checkout::
+ The action of updating the working tree to a revision which was
+ stored in the object database.
+
+commit::
+ As a verb: The action of storing the current state of the index in the
+ object database. The result is a revision.
+ As a noun: Short hand for commit object.
+
+commit object::
+ An object which contains the information about a particular
+ revision, such as parents, committer, author, date and the
+ tree object which corresponds to the top directory of the
+ stored revision.
+
+parent::
+ A commit object contains a (possibly empty) list of the logical
+ predecessor(s) in the line of development, i.e. its parents.
+
+changeset::
+ BitKeeper/cvsps speak for "commit". Since git does not store
+ changes, but states, it really does not make sense to use
+ the term "changesets" with git.
+
+clean::
+ A working tree is clean, if it corresponds to the revision
+ referenced by the current head.
+
+dirty::
+ A working tree is said to be dirty if it contains modifications
+ which have not been committed to the current branch.
+
+head::
+ The top of a branch. It contains a ref to the corresponding
+ commit object.
+
+branch::
+ A non-cyclical graph of revisions, i.e. the complete history of
+ a particular revision, which is called the branch head. The
+ branch heads are stored in `$GIT_DIR/refs/heads/`.
+
+master::
+ The default branch. Whenever you create a git repository, a branch
+ named "master" is created, and becomes the active branch. In most
+ cases, this contains the local development.
+
+origin::
+ The default upstream branch. Most projects have one upstream
+ project which they track, and by default 'origin' is used for
+ that purpose. New updates from upstream will be fetched into
+ this branch; you should never commit to it yourself.
+
+ref::
+ A 40-byte hex representation of a SHA1 pointing to a particular
+ object. These may be stored in `$GIT_DIR/refs/`.
+
+head ref::
+ A ref pointing to a head. Often, this is abbreviated to "head".
+ Head refs are stored in `$GIT_DIR/refs/heads/`.
+
+tree-ish::
+ A ref pointing to either a commit object, a tree object, or a
+ tag object pointing to a tag or commit or tree object.
+
+ent::
+ Favorite synonym to "tree-ish" by some total geeks. See
+ `http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ent_(Middle-earth)` for an in-depth
+ explanation.
+
+tag object::
+ An object containing a ref pointing to another object, which can
+ contain a message just like a commit object. It can also
+ contain a (PGP) signature, in which case it is called a "signed
+ tag object".
+
+tag::
+ A ref pointing to a tag or commit object. In contrast to a head,
+ a tag is not changed by a commit. Tags (not tag objects) are
+ stored in `$GIT_DIR/refs/tags/`. A git tag has nothing to do with
+ a Lisp tag (which is called object type in git's context).
+ A tag is most typically used to mark a particular point in the
+ commit ancestry chain.
+
+merge::
+ To merge branches means to try to accumulate the changes since a
+ common ancestor and apply them to the first branch. An automatic
+ merge uses heuristics to accomplish that. Evidently, an automatic
+ merge can fail.
+
+octopus::
+ To merge more than two branches. Also denotes an intelligent
+ predator.
+
+resolve::
+ The action of fixing up manually what a failed automatic merge
+ left behind.
+
+rewind::
+ To throw away part of the development, i.e. to assign the head to
+ an earlier revision.
+
+rebase::
+ To clean a branch by starting from the head of the main line of
+ development ("master"), and reapply the (possibly cherry-picked)
+ changes from that branch.
+
+repository::
+ A collection of refs together with an object database containing
+ all objects, which are reachable from the refs, possibly accompanied
+ by meta data from one or more porcelains. A repository can
+ share an object database with other repositories.
+
+git archive::
+ Synonym for repository (for arch people).
+
+file system::
+ Linus Torvalds originally designed git to be a user space file
+ system, i.e. the infrastructure to hold files and directories.
+ That ensured the efficiency and speed of git.
+
+alternate object database::
+ Via the alternates mechanism, a repository can inherit part of its
+ object database from another object database, which is called
+ "alternate".
+
+reachable::
+ An object is reachable from a ref/commit/tree/tag, if there is a
+ chain leading fro
