and if it is not found, honors `push.default` configuration to decide
what to push (See linkgit:git-config[1] for the meaning of `push.default`).
+When neither the command-line nor the configuration specify what to
+push, the default behavior is used, which corresponds to the `simple`
+value for `push.default`: the current branch is pushed to the
+corresponding upstream branch, but as a safety measure, the push is
+aborted if the upstream branch does not have the same name as the
