I am aware of the convention and the nature of local repositories.
That's not my problem.
Git repositories can have a "remote repository" by means of the
origin/[branch] aspect. This is the "remote" tracked branches that are
used in Upstreams.
I want to know how I can define an upstream repository on my local system,
a network system, or by way of a cloud service. If it is local it CANNOT
be Linux. It must be a windows host. If I had the capability of doing a
linux box or VM I would already be using GitLab, because i know it. But
since I can't do linux, I need a windows or cloud solution for this.
And trust me, I've already searched a hundred times for what i'm looking
for and I keep getting routed to GitLab or GitHub. I need a different
Now i don't know what API GitHub uses, and it appears you can do a single
project, but I want a remote repository for a 100 projects. They have a
"personal" that seems to allow unlimited private projects for $7 a month,
but I don't know if they have an API, a way to automate my stuff via other
interfaces than a web browser, and I'm not going to pay for anything until
I can verify it will do what I want.
