@jfrankcarr as a developer at a law school, I think you'd regret that.

@MatthewScharley I already implement guard and think it'd be great in this situation.

comment Web development: no local server workflow
I have a LOT of flexibility - we run gigabit between the two sources, so speed shouldn't be an issue at all. I might just have to test it out for awhile and see if it is fast enough.

We don't currently implement a build step. I'm on the path to learning VIM, but not quite there yet. Thanks for your input!

comment Is switching from a CVCS to a DVCS a considerable bandwidth save?
@stijn I'd say a combination of both. The straight-over conversion yielded quite a drastic increase, and tweaking it further reduced the size even more. In looking for evidence to support my experience, I found this article: codeforest.net/git-vs-svn which states that the Mozilla project found similar gains when switching away from SVN, although no direct link/evidence from Mozilla.

The size of the .git folder is/was ~346mb. I'm not sure what the entire directory tree is now, but my baseline is the size of our gitolite server repo versus the size of the svn repo.

In our SVN -> git conversion, we went from a 4.06gb codebase to 346mb. Imagine the bandwidth savings every time the codebase was checked out/cloned :)

But what is there to fix? What exactly is the problem? Does it just need to be refactored?
