12DESCRIPTION
13-----------
62cd033d
LAS
14A really simple TCP git daemon that normally listens on port "DEFAULT_GIT_PORT"
15aka 9418. It waits for a connection, and will just execute "git-upload-pack"
16when it gets one.
17
18It's careful in that there's a magic request-line that gives the command and
19what directory to upload, and it verifies that the directory is ok.

LAS
21It verifies that the directory has the magic file "git-daemon-export-ok", and
22it will refuse to export any git directory that hasn't explicitly been marked
23for export this way.
24
25This is ideally suited for read-only updates, ie pulling from git repositories.
