I have to specify the git-upload-pack with git. Since there are options in
the gitconfig file for specifying the upload and receive pack commands on
the remote side, why do I have to use the -u option with clone?
My gitconfig contains:
uploadpack = /path/to/server/git-upload-path
receivepack = /path/to/server/git-receive-path
If I try:
git clone ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/repo.git
I get the dreaded:
ksh: git-upload-pack: not found
If I include the -u option it works:
git clone -u "/path/to/server/git-upload-path"
Cloning into 'repo'...
So apparently git is not using the settings in the config file, so why does
the config file even support such options?
