The "remote" repository to pull from. One of the
following notations can be used to name the repository
to pull from:
-
- Rsync URL
- rsync://remote.machine/path/to/repo.git/
-
- HTTP(s) URL
- http://remote.machine/path/to/repo.git/
-
- GIT URL
- git://remote.machine/path/to/repo.git/
- remote.machine:/path/to/repo.git/
-
- Local directory
- /path/to/repo.git/
-
- In addition to the above, as a short-hand, the name of a
- file in $GIT_DIR/remotes directory can be given; the
- named file should be in the following format:
-
- URL: one of the above URL format
- Push: <refspec>...
- Pull: <refspec>...
-
- When such a short-hand is specified in place of
- <repository> without <refspec> parameters on the command
- line, <refspec>... specified on Push lines or Pull lines
- are used for "git push" and "git fetch/pull",
- respectively.
-
- The name of a file in $GIT_DIR/branches directory can be
- specified as an older notation short-hand; the named
- file should contain a single line, a URL in one of the
- above formats, optionally followed by a hash '#' and the
- name of remote head (URL fragment notation).
- $GIT_DIR/branches/<remote> file that stores a <url>
- without the fragment is equivalent to have this in the
- corresponding file in the $GIT_DIR/remotes/ directory
-
- URL: <url>
- Pull: refs/heads/master:<remote>
-
- while having <url>#<head> is equivalent to
-
- URL: <url>
- Pull: refs/heads/<head>:<remote>

<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.
-
- When used in "git push", 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).
-
- For "git push", 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.
-
- For "git fetch/pull", the remote ref that matches <src>
- is fetched, and if <dst> is not empty string, the local
- ref that matches it is fast forwarded using <src>.
- Again, if the optional plus '+' is used, the local ref
- is updated even if it does not result in a fast forward
- update.
-
- Some short-cut notations are also supported.
-
- * For backward compatibility, "tag" is almost ignored;
- it just makes the following parameter <tag> to mean a
- refspec "refs/tags/<tag>:refs/tags/<tag>".
-
- * A parameter <ref> without a colon is equivalent to
- <ref>: when pulling/fetching, and <ref>:<ref> when
- pushing. That is, do not store it locally if
- fetching, and update the same name if pushing.
