Was surprised,
When I re-sized and modified the partition at the disk block level (using 
gparted) where my GIT client folders were located, none of my directories  
configured as mirrors of repos on Github retained their configurations.

I would have thought that the git repo information about each directory 
should be stored at the Filesystem or higher level, either as file 
attributes or as configuration files, but if that were the case I highly 
doubt that the partition modifications I did should have affected git 

Resolution for re-creating git configs should be simple, I'll just remove 
existing local copies, then start over by cloning and/or initializing new 
local repos and doing a fetch or pull.

But, am still curious <why> my git configurations didn't survive, where are 
configurations kept that they might be vulnerable?
