I was able to clone my repos using the following the following syntax:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:tools.git
However, it does not work anymore. I get the following error:
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/t0122659/workspaceTemp/git-
fatal: 'tools.git' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
However, it does work, if I add "~/git/" before the name of the repo
git clone email@example.com:~/git/tools.git
Does anybody know why I need to add "~/git/" now?
Would it have any ill-effects?
