thanks for the answer. I'm sorry, I didnt explain my question clearly. I
try to clarify it by this scenario:
"Paul has a repository on GitHub called *rep1 *with some files. On his pc,
Paul clones it into the local repo called *rep2 *and stored, say, in C:\ "
Now the question is:
How does git know that the local repo stored in "C:\rep2" is mapped on the
remote rep1 (so that, when I push any local change I've commited, they are
sent to the right origin)?
Is this piece of info stored in a file? I mean, the* remote -v *command you
wrote about, how does it retrieves the info it then displays?
Hope this is clearer now.
Thanks a lot in advance for your time and help.
