FR: git for backup user?


#1

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.


#2

why couldn’t you just use rsync?


#3

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.)


#4

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:


#5

You could add a hook to call rsync :stuck_out_tongue:
