Description Jeff Fearn 2011-07-08 02:19:01 EDT
GIT is the new black, so it'd be nice to be able to use git for distributed sets.

Hi Jarek -- do you or your team have (or can easily make) a distributed <set> in Git so that we can test this functionality? Any pointers appreciated! :D
Comment 6 Jeff Fearn 2013-10-01 00:43:30 EDT
First shot checked in, without a set to test on so buyer beware.

Edit your publican.cfg like this:

books: "book1 book2"
repo: '"book1=git://git.example.org/book1.git""book2=git://git.example.com/git/book2.git"'

Assumption: each books is the only thing in the repository, so cd $book gets you to the books root directory

Added missing wrapper for dirmove.

Was able to build test set after removing Revision_History.xml from set's main file. Appendix is lot legal in a set.
