This variable is the same as `transfer.hideRefs`, but applies
only to `upload-pack` (and so affects only fetches, not pushes).
An attempt to fetch a hidden ref by `git fetch` will fail. See
When `uploadpack.hideRefs` is in effect, allow `upload-pack`
to accept a fetch request that asks for an object at the tip
of a hidden ref (by default, such a request is rejected).
See also `uploadpack.hideRefs`. Even if this is false, a client
may be able to steal objects via the techniques described in the
"SECURITY" section of the linkgit:gitnamespaces man page; it's
best to keep private data in a separate repository.
Allow `upload-pack` to accept a fetch request that asks for an
object that is reachable from any ref tip. However, note that
calculating object reachability is computationally expensive.
Defaults to `false`. Even if this is false, a client may be able
to steal objects via the techniques described in the "SECURITY"
section of the linkgit:gitnamespaces man page; it's best to
keep private data in a separate repository.
Allow `upload-pack` to accept a fetch request that asks for any
object at all.
Defaults to `false`.
When `upload-pack` has started `pack-objects`, there may be a
quiet period while `pack-objects` prepares the pack. Normally
it would output progress information, but if `--quiet` was used
for the fetch, `pack-objects` will output nothing at all until
the pack data begins. Some clients and networks may consider
the server to be hung and give up. Setting this option instructs
`upload-pack` to send an empty keepalive packet every
`uploadpack.keepAlive` seconds. Setting this option to 0
disables keepalive packets entirely. The default is 5 seconds.
If this option is set, when `upload-pack` would run
`git pack-objects` to create a packfile for a client, it will
run this shell command instead. The `pack-objects` command and
arguments it _would_ have run (including the `git pack-objects`
at the beginning) are appended to the shell command. The stdin
and stdout of the hook are treated as if `pack-objects` itself
was run. I.e., `upload-pack` will feed input intended for
`pack-objects` to the hook, and expects a completed packfile on
Note that this configuration variable is ignored if it is seen in the
repository-level config (this is a safety measure against fetching from
If this option is set, `upload-pack` will support partial
clone and partial fetch object filtering.
Provides a default value for unspecified object filters (see: the
below configuration variable).
Defaults to `true`.
Explicitly allow or ban the object filter corresponding to
`<filter>`, where `<filter>` may be one of: `blob:none`,
`blob:limit`, `tree`, `sparse:oid`, or `combine`. If using
combined filters, both `combine` and all of the nested filter
kinds must be allowed. Defaults to `uploadpackfilter.allow`.
Only allow `--filter=tree=<n>` when `n` is no more than the value of
`uploadpackfilter.tree.maxDepth`. If set, this also implies
`uploadpackfilter.tree.allow=true`, unless this configuration
variable had already been set. Has no effect if unset.
If this option is set, `upload-pack` will support the `ref-in-want`
feature of the protocol version 2 `fetch` command. This feature
is intended for the benefit of load-balanced servers which may
not have the same view of what OIDs their refs point to due to
