The short answer is: git remote add (and git help remote for
details). It's also possible to manally edit .git/config if it's
basically just a adress change you're doing.

The long answer is harder. You've experience with centralized systems.
Remember that git is decentralized. Every developer you've is a fully
functional unit on his own. All you need is a way for the developers to
interact with eachothers. It can be done via e-mail, or with them
pulling from eachother directly or as you've done, with one central
repository that everyone sync to.

The questions you've is rather fundamental to git. I tells me that you
do not fully utilize the strengths of git. I suggest reading the
progit book.

Good luck!
