New to the forums (and Dreamhost in general), but basically I’m working on developing a child theme for one of my client’s wordpress site, and I thought it would be pretty beneficial to use Git as I develop it. Someone else might need to inherit the code base of the theme one day, or one of my other co-workers might jump on the project after the first version of the site launches.
However, I’d have to bug my client for login credentials to Dreampress, and before I do, I would like to know be sure that this is the right choice. So I’m curious about the experiences of git paired with Dreampress:
Is it worth the trouble of setting up Git with Dreampress?
What experiences have you had paring Git with Dreampress?
What can I expect when trying to add new users to the project?
Does anyone know why Dreamhost does not recommend creating your git directly in the child theme’s directory?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
