This makes no sense. How can the server be in a different geographic
location from the repository? I'm guessing you are using the term
repository to refer to a working copy which is completely unrelated. Or
maybe you really do mean that the repository is on a mapped drive and the
server is in a different location, which would be very both very dangerous
to your data and very slow.

If I commit changes on my PC on the mapped drive to Melbourne, is the

Regardless of what you mean by 'repository', why do you need to use mapped
drives at all? You should never put a repository on a mapped drive. Sharing
a working copy on a mapped drive can work in some circumstances but is not
generally recommended. Sharing a working copy between two people is
definitely not recommended. There are several articles on this in the FAQ.

What problem are you trying to solve by using mapped drives? Very often
people do this (misguidedly) to avoid setting up a server, but you have
already done that part.
