    git-index-pack

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           git index-pack [-v] [-o <index-file>] <pack-file>
           git index-pack --stdin [--fix-thin] [--keep] [-v] [-o <index-file>]
                            [<pack-file>]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Reads a packed archive (.pack) from the specified file, and builds a
           pack index file (.idx) for it. The packed archive together with the
           pack index can then be placed in the objects/pack/ directory of a git
           repository.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -v
               Be verbose about what is going on, including progress status.
    
           -o <index-file>
               Write the generated pack index into the specified file. Without
               this option the name of pack index file is constructed from the
               name of packed archive file by replacing .pack with .idx (and the
               program fails if the name of packed archive does not end with
               .pack).
    
           --stdin
               When this flag is provided, the pack is read from stdin instead and
               a copy is then written to <pack-file>. If <pack-file> is not
               specified, the pack is written to objects/pack/ directory of the
               current git repository with a default name determined from the pack
               content. If <pack-file> is not specified consider using --keep to
               prevent a race condition between this process and git repack.
    
           --fix-thin
               Fix a "thin" pack produced by git pack-objects --thin (see git-
               pack-objects(1) for details) by adding the excluded objects the
               deltified objects are based on to the pack. This option only makes
               sense in conjunction with --stdin.
    
           --keep
               Before moving the index into its final destination create an empty
               .keep file for the associated pack file. This option is usually
               necessary with --stdin to prevent a simultaneous git repack process
               from deleting the newly constructed pack and index before refs can
               be updated to use objects contained in the pack.
    
           --keep=why
               Like --keep create a .keep file before moving the index into its
               final destination, but rather than creating an empty file place why
               followed by an LF into the .keep file. The why message can later be
               searched for within all .keep files to locate any which have
               outlived their usefulness.
    
           --index-version=<version>[,<offset>]
