Need to collect all git configs, I use

find / -type f -name '.gitconfig'

But also I need find out all locals 'config' under hidden .git dirs

/some_name/.git/config - i have to find this config file – Yurij73 Dec 23 '12 at 14:18
Yes, I understand. And standard find will find it. – Mat Dec 23 '12 at 14:19
i tryed find / -type f -name 'config' -type d -name '.git' dont works :( – Yurij73 Dec 23 '12 at 14:21
What is your Linux distro and version of find? What you describe is unusual, people usually ask the opposite (e.g. here) – Mat Dec 23 '12 at 14:24

This command:

ls -a

should do it.

That just lists all files and directories within the current dirctory, including hidden ones. It does not help with the use of find (e.g. for a recursive search, for a specific filename) in any way. – Bob Dec 23 '12 at 15:03
