/.git/config is a good source for reconnaissance

Many programmers deploy their /.git/config file and it is sometimes accessible from the web server.

This file is often useful as the means to find the URL to the git repository used by the developer. From there one can find the true identity of the developer.

I sometimes leave this file in the deployment. I like people being interested in me and finding what I do.
