I have GIT syncing working, kind of. I couldn't get my local files to
push to my web server using SSH (it kept complaining that I couldn't
push to the branch that was checked out, so I had to login to the
server, check out a temporary/fake branch, push from the local
machine, then switch back on the remote machine...annoying), so I am
using Github as an intermediary.
Of course this still means that "syncing" means logging into my web
server and checking out new changes when I work locally and
vice-versa...and as you noted, the conflict resolution of git isn't
going to be of much help if I forget.
Ideally, I'd have something working like DropBox, where the syncing
happens automagically...but I'm not sure I can set up a dropbox client
on my linux web server.
It feels like this shouldn't be so difficult!
