AgeCommit message (Collapse)Author avoid selecting synopsis at wrong placeNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
In "common" man pages there is luckily no "NAME" anywhere except at beginning of documents. If there is another "NAME", sed could mis-select it and lead to common-cmds.h corruption. So better nail it at beginning of line, which would reduce corruption chance. Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-12-02Consolidate command list to one.Junio C Hamano
The categorized list of commands in git(7) and the list of common commands in "git help" output were maintained separately, which was insane. This consolidates them to a single command-list.txt file. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-11-14Make the list of common commands more exclusiveTheodore Ts'o
Remove apply, archive, cherry-pick, prune, revert, and show-branch, so "git help" is less intimidating. Signed-off-by: "Theodore Ts'o" <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2007-01-12use 'init' instead of 'init-db' for shipped docs and toolsNicolas Pitre
While 'init-db' still is and probably will always remain a valid git command for obvious backward compatibility reasons, it would be a good idea to move shipped tools and docs to using 'init' instead. Signed-off-by: Nicolas Pitre <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-09-09Add git-archiveFranck Bui-Huu
git-archive is a command to make TAR and ZIP archives of a git tree. It helps prevent a proliferation of git-{format}-tree commands. Instead of directly calling git-{tar,zip}-tree command, it defines a very simple API, that archiver should implement and register in "git-archive.c". This API is made up by 2 functions whose prototype is defined in "archive.h" file. - The first one is used to parse 'extra' parameters which have signification only for the specific archiver. That would allow different archive backends to have different kind of options. - The second one is used to ask to an archive backend to build the archive given some already resolved parameters. The main reason for making this API is to avoid using git-{tar,zip}-tree commands, hence making them useless. Maybe it's time for them to die ? It also implements remote operations by defining a very simple protocol: it first sends the name of the specific uploader followed the repository name (git-upload-tar git:// Then it sends options. It's done by sending a sequence of one argument per packet, with prefix "argument ", followed by a flush. The remote protocol is implemented in "git-archive.c" for client side and is triggered by "--remote=<repo>" option. For example, to fetch a TAR archive in a remote repo, you can issue: $ git archive --format=tar --remote=git://xxx/yyy/zzz.git HEAD We choose to not make a new command "git-fetch-archive" for example, avoind one more GIT command which should be nice for users (less commands to remember, keeps existing --remote option).
