Re: Sharing files between repositories

I'm confused as to why you are mentioning branches?

I don't want my own branch to work on. I was to have my own private copy
of some of the work I do. For example I wrote something in my spare
time, brought it to work and checked it in. But now if I make a bugfix
then I have to copy it back home and check it in there as well. Stupid.
I'd like to make a bugfix and have both a copy at work and a copy at
home, separate repositories. The second one at home is private to me and
things I work on. It is not for anybody but myself to access. I just
don't want to have to duplicate work.
