Well, depends on what you're after.

The file ~/.gitconfig stores the so-called "global" configuration, which
is per-user (there also exist two other levels: "system" and local to a
particular Git repository).

So, we hypothesized you have lots of stuff accreted in your global
config. If you want to delete it, simply _move_ the file ~/.gitconfig
somewhere (the easiest it so just rename it), and then see whether your
offending config stuff is gone.

There is no need to recreate that file: Git will do that automatically
whenever you call `git config` with the "--global" command-line option.
