16DESCRIPTION
17-----------
18
19Reflog is a mechanism to record when the tip of branches are
20updated. This command is to manage the information recorded in it.
21
22The subcommand "expire" is used to prune older reflog entries.
23Entries older than `expire` time, or entries older than
24`expire-unreachable` time and are not reachable from the current
25tip, are removed from the reflog. This is typically not used
26directly by the end users -- instead, see gitlink:git-gc[1].

30OPTIONS
31-------
32
33--expire=<time>::
34 Entries older than this time are pruned. Without the
35 option it is taken from configuration `gc.reflogExpire`,
36 which in turn defaults to 90 days.
37
38--expire-unreachable=<time>::
39 Entries older than this time and are not reachable from
40 the current tip of the branch are pruned. Without the
41 option it is taken from configuration
42 `gc.reflogExpireUnreachable`, which in turn defaults to
43 30 days.
44
45--all::
46 Instead of listing <refs> explicitly, prune all refs.
