OK. Max did reply to me yesterday saying that he understood the concept
quite well and whatever Ryan replied was the answer he was looking for.

So, its probably more a lack of understanding of the setup on my side.

Everywhere I have worked, they have had a separate test user that checked
out latest from the repository and tested it in a dev/qa/staging server
before going to production. Almost always there is db access to the dev
server from individual's workstation, there wer one click setup scripts that
installed all the dependencies (libraries etc) on the local machine, etc.
Basically, working copies on a central server is new to me. Now I know
better :-)
