How to examine a remote with git remote and git ls-remote.

Examine branches

Local branches:

$ git branch
* master

Remote branches:

$ git branch -r
  origin/HEAD -> origin/master

All branches:

$ git branch -a
* master
  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master

Verbose branches:

$ git branch -v
* master 610cd4eadec4 Merge branch 'x86-uv-for-linus' of git://
$ git branch -vv
* master 610cd4eadec4 [origin/master] Merge ...

Examine remotes

git remote

$ git remote
$ git remote -v
origin (fetch)
origin (push)
$ git remote show origin
* remote origin
  Fetch URL:
  Push  URL:
  HEAD branch: master
  Remote branch:
    master tracked
  Local branch configured for 'git pull':
    master merges with remote master
  Local ref configured for 'git push':
    master pushes to master (up to date)

git ls-remote

Lots of options here …

$ git ls-remote origin
