Where does Xcode 4.3.1 store local git repository?

Im use Xcode's local repository for my projects. Unless it is not recommended to do so, I am wondering if SourceTree offers better management of my repository than the built-in Xcode tools. I don't know how to add it, i.e., I don't know where Xcode stores the local repository.

Yep, or dragging / dropping the folder in which your project resides into the SourceTree Bookmarks window should do the trick.

XCode has to adhere to the same Git repository rules as anything else, which means that the root project folder has a (hidden) folder called '.git' where all the repository data is kept. So the root project folder is your git repository folder, and SourceTree can use that too.

Great! Thank you very much.

I haven't check in 4.3.1 (so YMMV) but in 4.2 the git repository is the directory ".git" inside your project directory.

Setting the "Source Path/URL" of a SourceTree bookmark to the top level Xcode project works for me with Xcode 4.2.

Great! Thank you very much.
