I am converting an old Subversion repository to Git. Here is an example:

$ svn info http://alfa.com/bravo/charlie
Path: charlie
URL: http://alfa.com/bravo/charlie
Relative URL: ^/charlie
Repository Root: http://alfa.com/bravo
Repository UUID: 01234567-89ab-cdef-0123-456789abcdef

Does Git have some equivalent to Repository UUID?

    Why? What do you want to use it for? What is your goal? – Lightness Races in Orbit Apr 3 '16 at 16:30
  • You could use the url or the root-hash. But without context it's hard to advise you. – CodesInChaos Apr 3 '16 at 17:26

No, there is no unique identification for a Git repository.
