No repo-borking to expect at all when using different versions of git
really, especially 1.7.6 which isn't that old. We've got a few servers and
developers with different versions of Git (from 1.7+ to 2.1+) at work and
it works just fine. The only thing you might need to pay attention to is
the behavior of some git commands which can change from one version to
another. For instance, starting from git 2.0 the default behavior of
git-push when run with no arguments is to push only the current branch *if*
it has a matching branch on the remote, whereas in earlier versions it used
to push all branches having the same name on both ends. But again, as
Philip said the release notes are quite copious if you have a problem.

Avinash, please don't hijack other people's threads. Also, this isn't a
git-specific question, it depends on your Linux distribution -- Check
