Mac Pro Tip: When copying a git repository directory to your network file server using rsync, try this:
rsync -brtlvP --chmod=Fu+w --delete-before Code/MyProject/ /Volumes/MyServer/Code/MyProject/
This will copy the files with timestamps but no other attributes, and will also give the file owner (you) full access rights. This ensures that you (or even Windows users with access rights) can overwrite the directory contents later because local read-only files (e.g. in the
.git directory) won't be read-only on the server. You can also change the
chmod option to customize the rights, like ensuring everyone has full control.
