I want to copy all my git repos from my old machine to my new machine (both Ubuntu). I will keep using both machines... I am doing this primarily out of laziness (well: there are for some local branches at the moment, and convenient stashes at hand, also the fact that I have multiple remotes connected, ... transfer of all of that is a bit tedious...),
...but (with some pains) yes, I could just well freshly clone from the various upstream repositories...
Question: Is this harmful in some way?
(Of course the repo states should be binary identical, whether I copy files or go for
git clone. But I could imagine, git puts some kind of unique (g)uuid into the .git folder upon first clone or so, to distinguish machines or such... but just a guess. I simply don't know the inner workings...)
update: My worries are primarily around uuids or similar, non-uniqueness of then two local git 'repos' ("clients") connecting towards one remote repo ("master/server").
If you know about this being ok or not-ok, I need actual sources for that knowledge (beyond „I believe“ or „It is“).
That being said, I think I found sort of a duplicate of my question on Superuser.
