It is true we always use this in documentation and help as the explicit 
(long) way is 100% failsafe as it doesn't make any (possibly wrong) 
assumptions, doesn't rely on shortcuts or special configs and works on 
any project/branch (using gerrit).

If you understand it, then it is pretty logic, push needs two params: a 
remote (origin) and a couple of <sourceref>:<targetref>. By this git 
knows which server/URL to contact and which local ref to store under 
which remote ref.

It is also true that there are numerous ways to do it differently, you 
should know that from using TYPO3. ;)

My suggestion is to go the long explicit way until you are confident 
with git and this workflow has been working for more than 10 times. 
After that you can dig into "making things easier". ;)
