I've picked out Enrico's key points.

Maybe I should try to explain the problem in terms of repository
hierarchy. Let's assume, there is this hierarchy of repositories:

Let's talk about branches instead - repos are just containers for
branches (and tags, etc).

This is often the key point that requires the 'new mindset'. Most folk
use/used the directory heirarchy (subtle distinction with the .git
'repo' directory heirarchy to be noted) as a way of separating ownership
between groups. They find it very hard to undo the old mindset and use
branches _instead of_ directories for the different group
configurations.

Teaching git is easy. Undoing the old mindset is hard hard hard. [it's
still hard]


By the way: you really should use non-conflicting tag names (eg.
adding some <site>+"/" or <site>+"-" prefix), otherwise you'll
easiy run into conflicts, because per default retrieved and local
tags will all be in some namespace
         Better consider tag names to be really global.

Definitely.

Apologies if it's a bit of bike-shedding.

Philip
