Hi, I have been using git as a local VCS for a little and now reading up on how to enable collaboration with the rest of the team. I think we’ll be using “remote repo”.
Since I am new, I am not sure what is the team behaviour pattern here, maybe you could advice on that.
The section of the official git manual that got me confused is the following:
Looking at their example of some ‘git remote’ output, I can see that there’s:
* What does that mean? That there are two different repos named samely (“ticgit”)?
* Why would a team work like that?
I am only able to do ‘git remote’ within an existing repo, isn’t that a little diminishing the usefullness of ‘git remote add’, as (I think) it means that the remote aliases are only defined for each local repo?
In the example provided, they are defining an alias for “…/schacon/ticgit” but when I want to clone a repo that’s hosted in the cloud, the command I am told to copy-paste is more like: …/schacon/ticgit.git
* Shouldn’t the manual tell us to refer to the full address (all the way including ticgit.git)?
I thought there can be only one repo hosted online and all users have a clone locally that they modify and stage to commit to the one that’s in the cloud… Or I am totally missing the way git is used with a cloud distribution server?
Kudos and thanks!
