Hello all -
I am new to Git and have only used it for a handful of files on a small
personal project. I'd like to explore using it further at my company. We
currently use Synergy, which everyone loves to hate, and which I personally
am fed up from having to constantly babysit. However, one unique feature
of Synergy in its handling of distributed repositories is that it does
incremental pushes that can be created as a file set between
two repositories that are on totally separate networks. This has been
useful to us to sync hypothetical repository "Main" to hypothetical
repository "Spoke" by literally burning change sets to a DVD nearly
everyday. The nice thing about Synergy is that "Main" remembers the last
time it created a change set for "Spoke", and subsequently only sends
deltas since the last changeset.
It seems that we could have a similar workflow using Git or other DVCS by
simply burning the entire "Master" repository to DVD everyday and
subsequently pushing to "Spoke", however the people that actually do the
DVD burning would get angry at us quickly. Any ideas if it would be
possible for Git to create a delta changeset that we could burn to DVD?
Seems like if I could setup a "Staging Spoke" on the same network as
"Main", and somehow record the push operations that happen from "Main" to
"Staging Spoke" that might do the trick, but I have no idea if something
like that is possible.
