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

30 OPTIONS
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.
