Hmm... Yeah. when you tell heat client the url to a template file, you could set a flag telling the heat client it is in a git repo. It could then automatically look for repo information and set a stack metadata item pointing back to it.

If you didn't care about taking a performance hit, heat client could always try and check to see if it was a git repo url. That may add several extra http requests though...

This exhibits similar problems to our Copyright header problems. Relying
on authors to maintain their authorship information in two places is
cumbersome and thus the one that is not automated will likely fall out
of sync fairly quickly.

Or you could have Heat able to pull from any remote source rather than
just allowing submission of the template directly. It would just be
another column in the stack record. This would allow said support person
to see where it came from by viewing the stack, which solves the use case.
