You would only need to do an update, not a full checkout (if I
understand what you mean).

Also I remember to have read somewhere that a version control system
does not replace the personal discussion between person. So I would
suggest that you use a server and as soon as somebody of you two have
made a commit he/she tells it the other one (by voice, phone, email,
whatever is easier).

So that way you do not need an automatic email sender in the so-
called post-commit-hook of your server (with the potential problem
that email are rather public.)

If you really really do not want a server, you could use the file:///
protocol but beware of file permissions (as you would write as
different users) and that you *cannot* use file:/// throught a remote
file system (or you would risk corruption).

Have a nice day!
