Defines the action `git push` should take if no refspec is
given (whether from the command-line, config, or elsewhere).
Different values are well-suited for
specific workflows; for instance, in a purely central workflow
(i.e. the fetch source is equal to the push destination),
`upstream` is probably what you want. Possible values are:
* `nothing` - do not push anything (error out) unless a refspec is
given. This is primarily meant for people who want to
avoid mistakes by always being explicit.
* `current` - push the current branch to update a branch with the same
name on the receiving end. Works in both central and non-central
* `upstream` - push the current branch back to the branch whose
changes are usually integrated into the current branch (which is
called `@{upstream}`). This mode only makes sense if you are
pushing to the same repository you would normally pull from
(i.e. central workflow).
* `tracking` - This is a deprecated synonym for `upstream`.
* `simple` - in centralized workflow, work like `upstream` with an
added safety to refuse to push if the upstream branch's name is
different from the local one.
When pushing to a remote that is different from the remote you normally
pull from, work as `current`. This is the safest option and is suited
for beginners.
This mode has become the default in Git 2.0.
* `matching` - push all branches having the same name on both ends.
This makes the repository you are pushing to remember the set of
branches that will be pushed out (e.g. if you always push 'maint'
and 'master' there and no other branches, the repository you push
to will have these two branches, and your local 'maint' and
'master' will be pushed there).
To use this mode effectively, you have to make sure _all_ the
branches you would push out are ready to be pushed out before
running 'git push', as the whole point of this mode is to allow you
to push all of the branches in one go. If you usually finish work
on only one branch and push out the result, while other branches are
unfinished, this mode is not for you. Also this mode is not
suitable for pushing into a shared central repository, as other
people may add new branches there, or update the tip of existing
branches outside your control.
This used to be the default, but not since Git 2.0 (`simple` is the
new default).
If set to true enable `--follow-tags` option by default. You
may override this configuration at time of push by specifying
May be set to a boolean value, or the string 'if-asked'. A true
value causes all pushes to be GPG signed, as if `--signed` is
passed to linkgit:git-push[1]. The string 'if-asked' causes
pushes to be signed if the server supports it, as if
`--signed=if-asked` is passed to 'git push'. A false value may
override a value from a lower-priority config file. An explicit
command-line flag always overrides this config option.
When no `--push-option=<option>` argument is given from the
command line, `git push` behaves as if each <value> of
this variable is given as `--push-option=<value>`.
This is a multi-valued variable, and an empty value can be used in a
higher priority configuration file (e.g. `.git/config` in a
repository) to clear the values inherited from a lower priority
configuration files (e.g. `$HOME/.gitconfig`).
push.pushoption = a
push.pushoption = b
push.pushoption = c
push.pushoption =
push.pushoption = b
This will result in only b (a and c are cleared).
Make sure all submodule commits used by the revisions to be pushed
are available on a remote-tracking branch. If the value is 'check'
then Git will verify that all submodule commits that changed in the
revisions to be pushed are available on at least one remote of the
submodule. If any commits are missing, the push will be aborted and
exit with non-zero status. If the value is 'on-demand' then all
submodules that changed in the revisions to be pushed will be
pushed. If on-demand was not able to push all necessary revisions
it will also be aborted and exit with non-zero status. If the value
is 'no' then default behavior of ignoring submodules when pushing
is retained. You may override this configuration at time of push by
specifying '--recurse-submodules=check|on-demand|no'.
If not set, 'no' is used by default, unless 'submodule.recurse' is
set (in which case a 'true' value means 'on-demand').
If set to "true", it is equivalent to specifying
`--force-if-includes` as an option to linkgit:git-push[1]
in the command line. Adding `--no-force-if-includes` at the
time of push overrides this configuration setting.
If set to "true", attempt to reduce the size of the packfile
sent by rounds of negotiation in which the client and the
server attempt to find commits in common. If "false", Git will
rely solely on the server's ref advertisement to find commits
in common.
