  Subject: [git-users] Why no git remote get-url origin?

  git-remote offers a set-url subcommand for setting a remote's URL:

  $ git remote set-url origin g...@github.com:mcandre/regenboog.git

  But I can't find a get counterpart:

  $ git remote get-url origin
  error: Unknown subcommand: get-url

  Could we add this getter to make the interface more intuitive?

Git doesn't use a get/set mindset. 

It's not clear to me what you expect that command to do.

Try using 'git config' if you wanted to readback any of the configuration 

If you were wanting to distinguish between a fetch and a push url have a look 
at the pushurl setting (which sometimes has differing authorisation setting 
depending on your server configs)

The world is only intuitive in retrospect ;-)
