I like git very much as version control system form code development and
I'm using it for a while. But now I've got a different task and I want to
use git for it.
I've got a windows share folder, located on a server I don't have access
to. There are few people working with this folder. The folder contains
mainly Excel files. Every file can be edited only by one user at any moment
of time. The task is to organize a version control system on this shared
folder. My idea is just to create git repository on that shared folder,
install git gui like TortoiseGit on local machines of user working with it
and make commits from local machines to the repository. I don't need
branching, local copies of repository and merging. Only simple commits to
store history of changes and be able to compare different revisions of the
file (I'm using a custom utility with git-difftool). The thing I'm worried
about is would be such approach safe. For example, if 2 users make commits
at the same time, will it be ok? Or what will happen if the connection to
the server would be lost during a commit (though it's not likely to
happen)? Can this make any damage to repository? Maybe there are some other
problems I haven't thought about?
I would be glad for any help or comments.
