+git-clone-pack(1)
+=================
+v0.1, July 2005
+
+NAME
+----
+git-clone-pack - Clones a repository by receiving packed objects.
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-clone-pack' [-q] [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory> [<heads>...]
+
+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 invoking 'git-unpack-objects' locally
+to receive the pack.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-q::
+ Pass '-q' flag to 'git-unpack-objects'; this makes the
+ cloning process less verbose.
+
+--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>:]<directory::
+ The (possibly remote) repository to clone from.
+
+<heads>...::
+ 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.

+git-clone-script(1)
+===================
+v0.1, July 2005
+
+NAME
+----
+git-clone-script - 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.
