Can't you find an old discarded PC to use for this? If you use a
stripped-down install of Linux, and you should be able to use quite a
low-end machine for this.

The main trick, I suspect, is file locking. I don't know FSFS's locking
requirements, but a lot of network filesystem implementations do not
support this very well. There may also be trouble on the Linux side.
Say you use SMB to connect to the NAS box...does the Linux kernel smbfs
implementation support the necessary locking semantics?

Again, I don't know the answers. Just trying to help you find the right

Perhaps a better solution would be to host the repository on a separate
machine, and only store periodic repository dumps on the NAS box. A
little scripting and a cron job or two and this will run itself.
