I wouldn't recommend rsyncing a git repository, and why would you when
there is a much more suitable tool for the job... git!
Just git push it wherever you want and git will be able to figure out
what it actually needs to send.


On the day *I* go to work for Microsoft, faint oinking sounds will be
heard from far overhead, the moon will not merely turn blue but
develop polkadots, and hell will freeze over so solid the brimstone
will go superconductive.
