git-http-push - Push objects over HTTP/DAV to another repository


   git http-push [--all] [--dry-run] [--force] [--verbose] <url> <ref> [<ref>...]


   Sends missing objects to remote repository, and updates the remote

   NOTE: This command is temporarily disabled if your libcurl is older
   than 7.16, as the combination has been reported not to work and
   sometimes corrupts repository.


       Do not assume that the remote repository is complete in its current
       state, and verify all objects in the entire local ref's history
       exist in the remote repository.

       Usually, the command refuses to update a remote ref that is not an
       ancestor of the local ref used to overwrite it. This flag disables
       the check. What this means is that the remote repository can lose
       commits; use it with care.

       Do everything except actually send the updates.

       Report the list of objects being walked locally and the list of
       objects successfully sent to the remote repository.

   -d, -D
       Remove <ref> from remote repository. The specified branch cannot be
       the remote HEAD. If -d is specified the following other conditions
       must also be met:

       *   Remote HEAD must resolve to an object that exists locally

       *   Specified branch resolves to an object that exists locally

       *   Specified branch is an ancestor of the remote HEAD

       The remote refs to update.


   A <ref> specification can be either a single pattern, or a pair of such
   patterns separated by a colon ":" (this means that a ref name cannot
   have a colon in it). A single pattern <name> is just a shorthand for

   Each pattern pair consists of the source side (before the colon) and
   the destination side (after the colon). The ref to be pushed is
   determined by finding a match that matches the source side, and where
   it is pushed is determined by using the destination side.

   *   It is an error if <src> does not match exactly one of the local

   *   If <dst> does not match any remote ref, either

       *   it has to start with "refs/"; <dst> is used as the destination
           literally in this case.

       *   <src> == <dst> and the ref that matched the <src> must not
           exist in the set of remote refs; the ref matched <src> locally
           is used as the name of the destination.

   Without '--force`, the <src> ref is stored at the remote only if <dst>
   does not exist, or <dst> is a proper subset (i.e. an ancestor) of
   <src>. This check, known as "fast-forward check", is performed in order
   to avoid accidentally overwriting the remote ref and lose other
   peoples' commits from there.

   With --force, the fast-forward check is disabled for all refs.

   Optionally, a <ref> parameter can be prefixed with a plus + sign to
   disable the fast-forward check only on that ref.
