I don't think this is a bug in git-config. It is generally the shell that is responsible for expanding "~" and passing along the result to commands. E.g.: $ strace -e execve git config --file ~/foo --list execve("/home/peff/local/git/current/bin/git", ["git", "config", "--file", "/home/peff/foo", "--list"], 0x7ffc10a88130 /* 55 vars */) = 0 > [System Info] > git version: > git version 2.31.1.windows.1 > cpu: x86_64 > built from commit: c5f0be26a7e3846e3b6268d1c6c4800d838c6bbb > sizeof-long: 4 > sizeof-size_t: 8 > shell-path: /bin/sh > feature: fsmonitor--daemon > uname: Windows 10.0 19042 > compiler info: gnuc: 10.2 > libc info: no libc information available > $SHELL (typically, interactive shell): <unset> I'd guess this might be related to Windows somehow. Are you entering the command in a bash shell, or via some other mechanism? -Peff
