Again, this sounds like an unnecessarily complicated and fragile
setup. Just use a single repository, hosted from a location that's
available to all developers and to the live production server. Maybe
that means you should host it on the live production server itself,
since that's theoretically always available. Develop in trunk, and
when you have things you want to move to production, copy the trunk
to a new branch. Or, merge from trunk to an always-present
"production" branch. Or something.
