That'd work if I had git on the windows machine that can actually access the
internet.  Unfortunately, I don't, and I won't.  It's pretty tightly locked
down.  "firewall" is a bad term, because it implies there's an actual path
to the internet.  There isn't, at least not from the place I do actual
work.  Have to burn files and copy them.  Virus paranoia and such.

... yes, it's a pain in the ass.

Ah.  I'd been going on the assumption that the occasional gem version bumps
were signifying real checkpoints.  If not, then, I havn't yet been burned by
pulling down head once a week or so
