-Does something not yet documented.
+A really simple TCP git daemon that normally listens on port "DEFAULT_GIT_PORT"
+aka 9418. It waits for a connection, and will just execute "git-upload-pack"
+when it gets one.
+It's careful in that there's a magic request-line that gives the command and
+what directory to upload, and it verifies that the directory is ok.
+It verifies that the directory has the magic file "git-daemon-export-ok", and
+it will refuse to export any git directory that hasn't explicitly been marked
+for export this way.
+This is ideally suited for read-only updates, ie pulling from git repositories.
-       Some option not yet documented.
-       Some argument not yet documented.
+       Have the server run as an inetd service.
+       Listen on an alternative port.
