If you go back in the thread, you may find a link to a gitfs client that
somebody kindly posted. This client pretty much defines the transparency
I'm talking about. The only problem is that it's read-only.

To make it really useful, it has to support versioning locally, disconnected
from the server repository. One way to implement this, could be by
committing every update unconditionally to an on-the-fly created git
repository private to the gitfs client.

With this transparently created private scratch repository it should then be
possible for the same gitfs to re-expose the locally created commits, all
without any direct user-intervention.

Later, this same scratch repository could then be managed by the normal
git-management tools/commands to ultimately update the backend git
repositories.

BTW: Sorry for my previous posts that contained the wrong date; it seems
that hibernation sometimes advances the date by a full 24h. Has anybody
noticed this as well?


Thanks!
