FR: git for backup user?


Is it / would it be possible to include git as one of the backup user commands? I would love to have a backup of my dotfiles on dreamhost; not that they take up a lot of space, just that redundancy is good.


why couldn’t you just use rsync?


Not possible. Sorry.

(git can execute arbitrary commands on the server through the use of hooks, and we’d like to avoid having that possible on the backup server.)


bobocat, I could, it’s just a matter of convenience since I already use git (without pushing)

andrewf, OK, sounds reasonable. Thanks for explaining why not :slight_smile:


You could add a hook to call rsync :stuck_out_tongue:
