4 NAME
5 ----
6 git-daemon - A really simple server for GIT repositories.
7
8 SYNOPSIS
9 --------
10 'git-daemon' [--verbose] [--inetd | --port=n]
11
12 DESCRIPTION
13 -----------
14 A really simple TCP git daemon that normally listens on port "DEFAULT_GIT_PORT"
15 aka 9418. It waits for a connection, and will just execute "git-upload-pack"
16 when it gets one.
17
18 It's careful in that there's a magic request-line that gives the command and
19 what directory to upload, and it verifies that the directory is ok.
20
21 It verifies that the directory has the magic file "git-daemon-export-ok", and
22 it will refuse to export any git directory that hasn't explicitly been marked
23 for export this way.
24
25 This is ideally suited for read-only updates, ie pulling from git repositories.
