Changes remote repository configurations. The NAME refers to the name of the remote.

The BRANCH arguments to the add subcommand specifies the configured branches for the remote. See the branches section in ostree.repo-config(5) for more information.

The gpg-import subcommand can associate GPG keys to a specific remote repository for use when pulling signed commits from that repository (if GPG verification is enabled). The gpg-list-keys subcommand can be used to see the GPG keys currently associated with a remote repository.

The GPG keys to import may be in binary OpenPGP format or ASCII armored. The optional [KEY-ID] list can restrict which keys are imported from a keyring file or input stream. All keys are imported if this list is omitted. If neither --keyring nor --stdin options are given, then keys are imported from the user's personal GPG keyring.

The various cookie related command allow management of a remote specific cookie jar.
