Well, I don't see the point of people downloading the code to their *local* windows machine when they can edit files and working directly into the development server through the network, I said mount but I wanted to say network drive. Does anyone have clue why git is behaving this odd? I'm really

Thanks for the help Thomas! I can't wait to become a full-fledged Git user. Unfortunately, I seem to have left out some finer details, which I need further guidance on. First off, the UK website is not the same as the US website, it's two different code bases, but I suppose I can just replicate

[git-users] slowness pulling data to mobile devices

2011-04-21 Thread Qianqian Fang
Dear list: I used git to sync all my stuff across multiple computers as well as my cell phone. Currently, I have a git repo roughly 4G in size (the size of the .git folder), synchronizing between computers are reasonablely fast, but I found syncing with my cell phone via a USB cable is awfully

Hi Angelo, I think the reason that git is behaving oddly is because you are not using it the way it was intended to be used. Git is intended to have a copy of the code on each machine that is running it. That being said, I'm not aware of any CVS system that doesn't require that code be kept

Yes, if it's two different websites, there's no point in them sharing a repository. Have two repositories: website-us and website-uk. There's nothing wrong with having more machines involved, of course. You can clone around the repository as many times as you want. But before a developer in

Thanks again, Thomas. Would you suggest having the intermediate server (Model 1), as opposed to just using the webserver (Model 2), or vice-versa? If you do suggest having the intermediate server, can you explain more about cloning around the repository? Also, in that case, would I push from my

If it's only for backup or transport purposes, you could still rsync the repository to your mobile. Making it a bare repository would reduce the size of stuff to be rsynced. I'm not familiar with the internals http://progit.org/book/ch9-6.html of a git push or pull, but there is a lot of

Oh, I didn't spot the difference there. Hmm. Well, you can have an intermediate intermediate repository if you want. This is a nice place for sharing branches and stuff between developers. If you have it push onward to the webserver automatically or if you have the developers push themselves..

Almost getting there! Couple more questions for clarification: Why is it more secure to force all changes through an intermediate repository? Or maybe I'm confused on how to force all changes through an intermediate repositoryHere's the 3 scenarios I'm imagining, please correct me where I'm
