We are using GitHub enterprise, and I have a local repository that I have already set up with git CLI commands to be a clone of a repository on our internal GitHub enterprise. It is all working fine with the git CLI commands. There is a lot of configuration around (and inside of) the local repo that is necessary for execution and testing.
I would like try out GitHub Desktop using this repository, but I can’t find any way to tell it that I have a local repository that is already a clone of a remote repo. There are several choices for how to tell it about a repo, but none of them cover the particular use case I’ve described (that I can tell, at least).
Is there some way to get GitHub desktop to understand that my local repo is already a clone of a remote repo, and just have it understand that existing relationship?
