if I had only, I don't see why I would have to duplicate it, but I have sevrel 
in several computers

so, If I understand, you have an empty wiki folder with the latest version and 
update there, making it the farm source. But what about the cookbooks? farm 
wide ones have to be in the farm source, as well as the farm wide config file?

I will think about this

I guess there is no secure way to share a single farm source with several 
computers spread on the net?

I always try to script my work as much as possible, because it's pretty easy 
to mistype a tar option. of course I always begin with a backup, but as you 
may know these things are often made on a hurry..
