Re: Checkin/checkout via 'sneakernet'

What about just keeping the whole repository on the zip disk, provided
it doesn't get too large. Then, wherever you go, you have the
repository, so you can commit to it and update from it. As a safety
measure, you could have backup scripts that backup the repository
whenever it is connected to one of your computers. Am I missing
something that makes this solution unfeasible?
