    How to check if a Git remote repository is available in python

    This simple python code shows how to check if a given Git remote repository is available. The code invokes the git command 'git ls-remote' on the remote URL path as subprocess with Popen and checks the exit code, using the communicate() method. The command exit status is stored into the 'returncode' property. A value not-equals to '0' mean
    from subprocess import Popen, PIPE, STDOUT
    p = Popen(["git", "ls-remote", "git://remote_path"], stdout=PIPE)
    output = p.communicate()[0]
    if p.returncode != 0:
      print "Command failed ["+str(p.returncode)+"]"
