Re: Promotion system (for lack of a better term)

I have thought about that as well...the way I currently have it set up is
on the dev box, when I commit changes from my local development directory,
using the post commit hooks...it updates the dev box's live directory.
What i want to be able to do is when i am happy with the change I
made...promote them to he production server. I could just have the live
directory on the production server be a check out of the repository on the
dev box... My only concern is that if my partner has to work on something
and for whatever reason, my dev box is not available (it's located in my
home office and we have been known to lose internet access due to storms
from time to time) that he be able to check out the latest version (or
update to the latest version) from the live repository...hence the 2
repositories....just a little redundancy. If there is a way to update the
production repository from the live directory on dev while still having the
live directory on dev as a checked directory from the dev repository...that
would be ideal.

Why do you want to have two repositories?

I recommend you use separate repositories only for concepts which
really are separate from one another. For example, I have a
repository for my software source code, and another repository for my
music.

I recommend you have just a single repository, served from a machine
that's accessible to both your live and dev environments -- which
could be either the live or dev machine, or a third machine,
depending on your setup. You can manage the separate dev and live
environments by making one of these a branch.
