After re-reading the git documentation and with Andrew's input I have changed my thinking on how to set this up and want a central repository. If I understand correctly, I am doing builds while I am developing new code so I need to clone my repository for Eclipse (I'm assuming the git plugin supports all this). Before I go to the trouble of setting it up please correct where my thinking is flawed or where I may run into gotchas.
1) Install git on Linux. 2) Copy existing Eclipse project to a new directory to become the central repository. 3) git init in that new directory (I think I then do a git add and git commit). 4) Modify build scripts to build from that directory (I am guessing I need to git ignore the javac generated binary directory). 5) Install git plugin on Windows version of Eclipse. (Do I need git on Windows or is the plugin sufficient?) 6) Configure plugin for remote git, if necessary? 7) Clone new repository for development and testing on Windows. (Do I need the shared drive any more?) 8) When a new version is ready for release, push commit to remote repository after which builds will use new code (I'm assuming the file copies happen automagically). Am I over simplifying things? I also think that this will open the door for collaborators in the event I need them with no changes to the way I work. I should note that builds are done on demand so is there a way to detect when a push is occurring and have the build script wait for completion and I suppose vise-versa? Thanks.
