It is exactly spelled like so.  Just like '.' in the filesystem
refers to our current directory, a dot-repository used there refers
to our local repository.  "Git is distributed and no repository is
special" principle extends to our own local repository in that you
can use it just like you can use anybody else's repository as the
source of fetch or the destination of push.
