ls-remote: document the '--get-url' option
While looking for a way to expand the URL of a remote that uses a 'url.<name>.insteadOf' config option I stumbled over the undocumented '--get-url' option of 'git ls-remote'. This adds some minimum documentation for that option. And while at it, also add that option to the '-h' output. Signed-off-by: Stefan Naewe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
