+
+NAME
+----
+git-clone - Clones a repository.
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git clone' [-l] [-u <upload-pack>] [-q] <repository> <directory>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Clones a repository into a newly created directory.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-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.
+
+-q::
+ Operate quietly. This flag is passed to "rsync" and
+ "git-clone-pack" commands when given.
+
+-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 an "rsync://host/dir" URL, an "http://host/dir" URL,
+ or [<host>:]/dir notation that is used by 'git-clone-pack'.
+ Currently http transport is not supported.
+
+<directory>::
+ The name of a new directory to be cloned into. It is an
+ error to specify an existing directory.
