git-upload-archive - Send archive back to git-archive


git upload-archive <directory>


Invoked by git archive --remote and sends a generated archive to the other end over the
Git protocol.

This command is usually not invoked directly by the end user. The UI for the protocol is
on the git archive side, and the program pair is meant to be used to get an archive from a
remote repository.


In order to protect the privacy of objects that have been removed from history but may not
yet have been pruned, git-upload-archive avoids serving archives for commits and trees
that are not reachable from the repository’s refs. However, because calculating object
reachability is computationally expensive, git-upload-archive implements a stricter but
easier-to-check set of rules:

1. Clients may request a commit or tree that is pointed to directly by a ref. E.g., git
archive --remote=origin v1.0.

2. Clients may request a sub-tree within a commit or tree using the ref:path syntax.
E.g., git archive --remote=origin v1.0:Documentation.

3. Clients may not use other sha1 expressions, even if the end result is reachable. E.g.,
neither a relative commit like master^ nor a literal sha1 like abcd1234 is allowed,
even if the result is reachable from the refs.

Note that rule 3 disallows many cases that do not have any privacy implications. These
rules are subject to change in future versions of git, and the server accessed by git
archive --remote may or may not follow these exact rules.

If the config option uploadArchive.allowUnreachable is true, these rules are ignored, and
clients may use arbitrary sha1 expressions. This is useful if you do not care about the
privacy of unreachable objects, or if your object database is already publicly available
for access via non-smart-http.
