Does Git only use the remote name origin for a repository which was created by cloning?
eg, say I create a repository, place it on a remote, and try to clone it again into the same directory, which one would Git name origin?
origin is the default name used by
git clone, but you can use any other name when cloning:
--origin <name> -o <name>
Instead of using the remote name
originto keep track of the upstream repository, use
If you don't, any time you clone a repo, that remote repo will be referenced by the default name
