Git status in regards to multiple remote repositories
I have a script which emails me a reminder if I’ve forgotten to commit or push some code on each of my 40+ repositories.
With 2 of my projects, I have followed the answers in these posts, where I have set-up “git-push” to push to multiple repositories:
- how do I close the ssh-agent.exe for git?
- Git clone is incredibly slow on my Mac. How can I fix that?
- Download Github pull request as unified diff
- is this a valid git fork use-case?
- Stop tracking an entire repository to delete local files
- Google App Engine push to deploy from GitHub for Windows (and git bash)
pull/push from multiple remote locations
git push to multiple repositories simultaneously
So I have a .git/config file with:
[core] repositoryformatversion = 0 filemode = true bare = false logallrefupdates = true [branch "master"] remote = origin merge = refs/heads/master [remote "origin"] url = https://www.example.com/git/project/ url = email@example.com:username/project.git [remote "example"] url = https://www.example.com/git/project/ fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/example/* [remote "github"] url = firstname.lastname@example.org:username/project.git fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/github/*
This works well when it comes to doing a git push/pull.
With the script I have used:
git status --short
But this only shows un-commited changes… even without the “–short” flag, it does not show what normally appears with only 1 remote:
Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 1 commit.
Trying to run any of the following “diff” commands also doesn’t seem to work… well it does on the first time, but it seems to remember the remote files at the date/time when it was setup, so as you make more changes it compares them against that version in history:
git diff --name-status "origin"; git diff --name-status "origin/master"; git diff --name-status "example/master"; git diff --name-status "github/master";
Any thoughts? I am fairly new to Git.

I believe this method is possibly a bit buggy, as it seems to remember a commit ref for each remote, but this does not get updated when doing a push/pull… so when checking via a diff, its always going to look at the old commit ref for a comparison.
While its not a solution to this setup, I have gone back to a single remote setup, but edited it so that it has 2 urls… so while the pull only happens from one remote, when I push, it goes to two:
[core] repositoryformatversion = 0 filemode = true bare = false logallrefupdates = true [branch "master"] remote = origin merge = refs/heads/master [remote "origin"] fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/* url = https://www.example.com/git/project/ url = email@example.com:username/project.git
Note: This only works for now, as I’m the only committer.
