if I'm getting it right, there is a read only repo that you want to take home. In this case, git-bundle is good for you. Follow the git-bundle man-page, where R1 should be the read only repo, and R2 your home repo.
First, create the initial bundle: cd R1 git bundle create /home/you/file.bundle master As you don't have write access, you can't create tags, so you will have to write down the last commit hash. Now take file.bundle home, and issue git clone file.bundle game-folder which will create game-folder/ and check out the whole repo there. Next time when R1 is at hand, use cd R1 git bundle create /home/you/file.bundle lastCommitHash..master Again, you can't create tags, so write down the new last commit hash. Now take this new file home, overwrite the old file.bundle, and issue a git pull in your home repo (game-folder/). Voilà! An easier approach can be if you clone the repo to a private folder, if possible. E.g. take a pendrive with you, do a git clone to clone the read only repo into a folder on it, and periodically do a git pull when you are around again.
