13 DESCRIPTION
14 -----------
15 This is meant to be used as a login shell for SSH accounts you want
16 to restrict to GIT pull/push access only. It permits execution only
17 of server-side GIT commands implementing the pull/push functionality.
18 The commands can be executed only by the '-c' option; the shell is not
19 interactive.
20
21 Currently, only the `git-receive-pack` and `git-upload-pack` commands
22 are permitted to be called, with a single required argument.
