I started looking at my local machine and finally found where I had tucked away the code. But when I tried to ask git where it was pointing to I got an error:
git remote show origin ERROR: Repository not found. fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
Ooops, that didn't work out. My curiosity was peaked though. Surely there was a way to get at this information even though the remote might not be there any longer. And there is. You can ask your gitconfig for it:
git config --get remote.origin.url firstname.lastname@example.org:sware/duoness.git
This is telling git to get the url of the remote's origin repository out of the local configuration information.
What is duoness you may ask? It stands for "Do Unto Others-ness". It hopes to be a record of people either having done a random act of kindness or having received a random act of kindness. Time will tell if it makes it out to production.
