The decision on SVN vs. GIT was not rigorously researched, SVN was probably the more familiar. Perhaps I need to research the benefits of GIT vs. SVN.
I appreciate all the input, the daily/weekly checkin to the two repositories does seem to work in practice, although the revision counts do not seem to jump contiguously,
where the weekly repository jumps from say revision 1 to revision 5 for a single checkin, for which there is probably an explanation.
I recognize that during the weekly office checking, many individual changes are bundled into a less granular checking.
I consider this an interrum working solution until such a time that we establish VPN and utilize a singular repository.
