Yes, that's gonna start another discussion of that topic. Here goes:

As long as the repository is backed up, why would you need to backup a

commit them? Just don't put working copies on network folders, alright?

Not necessarily. Just get a local working copy and be done with it!
Otherwise yes.

It's all in the manual, by the way ...
