git-tar-tree - Creates a tar archive of the files in the named tree
'git-tar-tree' [--remote=<repo>] <tree-ish> [ <base> ]
THIS COMMAND IS DEPRECATED. Use `git-archive` with `--format=tar`
option instead.
Creates a tar archive containing the tree structure for the named tree.
When <base> is specified it is added as a leading path to the files in the
generated tar archive.
git-tar-tree behaves differently when given a tree ID versus when given
a commit ID or tag ID. In the first case the current time is used as
modification time of each file in the archive. In the latter case the
commit time as recorded in the referenced commit object is used instead.
Additionally the commit ID is stored in a global extended pax header.
It can be extracted using git-get-tar-commit-id.
The tree or commit to produce tar archive for. If it is
the object name of a commit object.
Leading path to the files in the resulting tar archive.
Instead of making a tar archive from local repository,
retrieve a tar archive from a remote repository.
By default, file and directories modes are set to 0666 or 0777. It is
possible to change this by setting the "umask" variable in the
repository configuration as follows :
umask = 002 ;# group friendly
The special umask value "user" indicates that the user's current umask
will be used instead. The default value remains 0, which means world
readable/writable files and directories.
