    Command:

    git-bundle

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           git bundle create <file> <git-rev-list args>
           git bundle verify <file>
           git bundle list-heads <file> [refname...]
           git bundle unbundle <file> [refname...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Some workflows require that one or more branches of development on one
           machine be replicated on another machine, but the two machines cannot
           be directly connected, and therefore the interactive git protocols
           (git, ssh, rsync, http) cannot be used. This command provides support
           for git fetch and git pull to operate by packaging objects and
           references in an archive at the originating machine, then importing
           those into another repository using git fetch and git pull after moving
           the archive by some means (e.g., by sneakernet). As no direct
           connection between the repositories exists, the user must specify a
           basis for the bundle that is held by the destination repository: the
           bundle assumes that all objects in the basis are already in the
           destination repository.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           create <file>
               Used to create a bundle named file. This requires the git rev-list
               arguments to define the bundle contents.
    
           verify <file>
               Used to check that a bundle file is valid and will apply cleanly to
               the current repository. This includes checks on the bundle format
               itself as well as checking that the prerequisite commits exist and
               are fully linked in the current repository.  git bundle prints a
               list of missing commits, if any, and exits with a non-zero status.
    
           list-heads <file>
               Lists the references defined in the bundle. If followed by a list
               of references, only references matching those given are printed
               out.
    
           unbundle <file>
               Passes the objects in the bundle to git index-pack for storage in
               the repository, then prints the names of all defined references. If
               a list of references is given, only references matching those in
               the list are printed. This command is really plumbing, intended to
               be called only by git fetch.
    
           [git-rev-list-args...]
               A list of arguments, acceptable to git rev-parse and git rev-list,
               that specifies the specific objects and references to transport.
               For example, master\~10..master causes the current master reference
               to be packaged along with all objects added since its 10th ancestor
               commit. There is no explicit limit to the number of references and
               objects that may be packaged.
    
           the union of the given bases. Each basis can be specified explicitly
           (e.g. ^master~10), or implicitly (e.g. master\~10..master,
           --since=10.days.ago master).
    
           It is very important that the basis used be held by the destination. It
           is okay to err on the side of caution, causing the bundle file to
           contain objects already in the destination, as these are ignored when
           unpacking at the destination.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLE

           Assume you want to transfer the history from a repository R1 on machine
           A to another repository R2 on machine B. For whatever reason, direct
           connection between A and B is not allowed, but we can move data from A
           to B via some mechanism (CD, email, etc.). We want to update R2 with
           development made on the branch master in R1.
    
           To bootstrap the process, you can first create a bundle that does not
           have any basis. You can use a tag to remember up to what commit you
           last processed, in order to make it easy to later update the other
           repository with an incremental bundle:
    
               machineA$ cd R1
               machineA$ git bundle create file.bundle master
               machineA$ git tag -f lastR2bundle master
    
           Then you transfer file.bundle to the target machine B. If you are
           creating the repository on machine B, then you can clone from the
           bundle as if it were a remote repository instead of creating an empty
           repository and then pulling or fetching objects from the bundle:
    
               machineB$ git clone /home/me/tmp/file.bundle R2
    
           This will define a remote called "origin" in the resulting repository
           that lets you fetch and pull from the bundle. The $GIT_DIR/config file
           in R2 will have an entry like this:
    
               [remote "origin"]
                   url = /home/me/tmp/file.bundle
                   fetch = refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
    
           To update the resulting mine.git repository, you can fetch or pull
           after replacing the bundle stored at /home/me/tmp/file.bundle with
           incremental updates.
    
           After working some more in the original repository, you can create an
           incremental bundle to update the other repository:
    
               machineA$ cd R1
               machineA$ git bundle create file.bundle lastR2bundle..master
    
           for this purpose, but you can use any other options that you would give
           to the git-log(1) command. Here are more examples:
    
           You can use a tag that is present in both:
    
               $ git bundle create mybundle v1.0.0..master
    
           You can use a basis based on time:
    
               $ git bundle create mybundle --since=10.days master
    
           You can use the number of commits:
    
               $ git bundle create mybundle -10 master
    
           You can run git-bundle verify to see if you can extract from a bundle
           that was created with a basis:
    
               $ git bundle verify mybundle
    
           This will list what commits you must have in order to extract from the
           bundle and will error out if you do not have them.
    
           A bundle from a recipient repository's point of view is just like a
           regular repository which it fetches or pulls from. You can, for
           example, map references when fetching:
    
               $ git fetch mybundle master:localRef
    
           You can also see what references it offers.
    
               $ git ls-remote mybundle
