My rancid SCM repos are read-only.
Checking in changes to your SCM doesn't apply those changed configs to
your devices. (unless I'm missing something fundamental about rancid)
Yes, git is great for handling complicated merges, but the rancid
process should be the only thing doing 'commits' to the tree so
complicated merges are moot.
There's a git-svn tool which acts as a conduit for svn trees if you
really can't grock svn. But as I say, most of the big git wins won't
apply for a read-only repo.
Are people using the rancid repo to push changes to devices??
