SYNOPSIS

git-update-server-info [--force]

DESCRIPTION

A dumb server that does not do on-the-fly pack generations must have some auxiliary information files in $GIT_DIR/info and $GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY/info directories to help clients discover what references and packs the server has. This command generates such auxiliary files.

OPTIONS

-f|--force

Update the info files from scratch.

OUTPUT

Currently the command updates the following files. Please see repository-layout for description of what they are for:

  • objects/info/packs

  • info/refs

BUGS

When you remove an existing ref, the command fails to update info/refs file unless --force flag is given.
