DESCRIPTION
       Manage the set of repositories ("remotes") whose branches you track.

OPTIONS
       -v, --verbose
           Be a little more verbose and show remote url after name. NOTE: This must be placed between remote and
           subcommand.

COMMANDS
       With no arguments, shows a list of existing remotes. Several subcommands are available to perform operations on
       the remotes.

       add
           Adds a remote named <name> for the repository at <url>. The command git fetch <name> can then be used to
           create and update remote-tracking branches <name>/<branch>.

           With -f option, git fetch <name> is run immediately after the remote information is set up.

           With --tags option, git fetch <name> imports every tag from the remote repository.

           With --no-tags option, git fetch <name> does not import tags from the remote repository.

           With -t <branch> option, instead of the default glob refspec for the remote to track all branches under the
           refs/remotes/<name>/ namespace, a refspec to track only <branch> is created. You can give more than one -t
           <branch> to track multiple branches without grabbing all branches.

           With -m <master> option, a symbolic-ref refs/remotes/<name>/HEAD is set up to point at remote's <master>
           branch. See also the set-head command.

           When a fetch mirror is created with --mirror=fetch, the refs will not be stored in the refs/remotes/
           namespace, but rather everything in refs/ on the remote will be directly mirrored into refs/ in the local
           repository. This option only makes sense in bare repositories, because a fetch would overwrite any local
           commits.

           When a push mirror is created with --mirror=push, then git push will always behave as if --mirror was
           passed.

       rename
           Rename the remote named <old> to <new>. All remote-tracking branches and configuration settings for the
           remote are updated.

           In case <old> and <new> are the same, and <old> is a file under $GIT_DIR/remotes or $GIT_DIR/branches, the
           remote is converted to the configuration file format.

       rm
           Remove the remote named <name>. All remote-tracking branches and configuration settings for the remote are
           removed.

       set-head
           Sets or deletes the default branch (i.e. the target of the symbolic-ref refs/remotes/<name>/HEAD) for the
           named remote. Having a default branch for a remote is not required, but allows the name of the remote to be
           specified in lieu of a specific branch. For example, if the default branch for origin is set to master,
           then origin may be specified wherever you would normally specify origin/master.

           With -d, the symbolic ref refs/remotes/<name>/HEAD is deleted.

           With -a, the remote is queried to determine its HEAD, then the symbolic-ref refs/remotes/<name>/HEAD is set
           to the same branch. e.g., if the remote HEAD is pointed at next, "git remote set-head origin -a" will set
           the symbolic-ref refs/remotes/origin/HEAD to refs/remotes/origin/next. This will only work if
           refs/remotes/origin/next already exists; if not it must be fetched first.

           Use <branch> to set the symbolic-ref refs/remotes/<name>/HEAD explicitly. e.g., "git remote set-head origin
           master" will set the symbolic-ref refs/remotes/origin/HEAD to refs/remotes/origin/master. This will only
           work if refs/remotes/origin/master already exists; if not it must be fetched first.

       set-branches
           Changes the list of branches tracked by the named remote. This can be used to track a subset of the
           available remote branches after the initial setup for a remote.

           The named branches will be interpreted as if specified with the -t option on the git remote add command
           line.

           With --add, instead of replacing the list of currently tracked branches, adds to that list.

       set-url
           Changes URL remote points to. Sets first URL remote points to matching regex <oldurl> (first URL if no
           <oldurl> is given) to <newurl>. If <oldurl> doesn't match any URL, error occurs and nothing is changed.

           With --push, push URLs are manipulated instead of fetch URLs.

           With --add, instead of changing some URL, new URL is added.

           With --delete, instead of changing some URL, all URLs matching regex <url> are deleted. Trying to delete
           all non-push URLs is an error.

       show
           Gives some information about the remote <name>.

           With -n option, the remote heads are not queried first with git ls-remote <name>; cached information is
           used instead.

       prune
           Deletes all stale remote-tracking branches under <name>. These stale branches have already been removed
           from the remote repository referenced by <name>, but are still locally available in "remotes/<name>".

           With --dry-run option, report what branches will be pruned, but do not actually prune them.

       update
           Fetch updates for a named set of remotes in the repository as defined by remotes.<group>. If a named group
           is not specified on the command line, the configuration parameter remotes.default will be used; if
           remotes.default is not defined, all remotes which do not have the configuration parameter
           remote.<name>.skipDefaultUpdate set to true will be updated. (See git-config(1)).

           With --prune option, prune all the remotes that are updated.

DISCUSSION
       The remote configuration is achieved using the remote.origin.url and remote.origin.fetch configuration
       variables. (See git-config(1)).

EXAMPLES
       ?   Add a new remote, fetch, and check out a branch from it

               $ git remote
               origin
               $ git branch -r
               origin/master
               $ git remote add linux-nfs git://linux-nfs.org/pub/linux/nfs-2.6.git
               $ git remote
               linux-nfs
               origin
               $ git fetch
               * refs/remotes/linux-nfs/master: storing branch ?master? ...
                 commit: bf81b46
               $ git branch -r
               origin/master
               linux-nfs/master
               $ git checkout -b nfs linux-nfs/master
               ...


       ?   Imitate git clone but track only selected branches

               $ mkdir project.git
               $ cd project.git
               $ git init
               $ git remote add -f -t master -m master origin git://example.com/git.git/
               $ git merge origin
