REMOTES[[REMOTES]]
------------------
The name of one of the following can be used instead
of a URL as `<repository>` argument:
* a remote in the git configuration file: `$GIT_DIR/config`,
* a file in the `$GIT_DIR/remotes` directory, or
* a file in the `$GIT_DIR/branches` directory.
All of these also allow you to omit the refspec from the command line
because they each contain a refspec which git will use by default.
Named remote in configuration file
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can choose to provide the name of a remote which you had previously
configured using linkgit:git-remote[1], linkgit:git-config[1]
or even by a manual edit to the `$GIT_DIR/config` file. The URL of
this remote will be used to access the repository. The refspec
of this remote will be used by default when you do
not provide a refspec on the command line. The entry in the
config file would appear like this:
------------
[remote "<name>"]
url = <url>
pushurl = <pushurl>
push = <refspec>
fetch = <refspec>
------------
The `<pushurl>` is used for pushes only. It is optional and defaults
to `<url>`.
Named file in `$GIT_DIR/remotes`
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can choose to provide the name of a
file in `$GIT_DIR/remotes`. The URL
in this file will be used to access the repository. The refspec
in this file will be used as default when you do not
provide a refspec on the command line. This file should have the
following format:
------------
URL: one of the above URL format
Push: <refspec>
Pull: <refspec>
------------
`Push:` lines are used by 'git-push' and
`Pull:` lines are used by 'git-pull' and 'git-fetch'.
Multiple `Push:` and `Pull:` lines may
be specified for additional branch mappings.
Named file in `$GIT_DIR/branches`
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can choose to provide the name of a
file in `$GIT_DIR/branches`.
The URL in this file will be used to access the repository.
This file should have the following format:
------------
<url>#<head>
------------
`<url>` is required; `#<head>` is optional.
Depending on the operation, git will use one of the following
refspecs, if you don't provide one on the command line.
`<branch>` is the name of this file in `$GIT_DIR/branches` and
`<head>` defaults to `master`.
git fetch uses:
------------
refs/heads/<head>:refs/heads/<branch>
------------
git push uses:
------------
HEAD:refs/heads/<head>
------------
