Well, I just meant that I didn't have to set up gitolite or something; it just works as is.  You only need that if you want multiple users without different accounts and such.

Yes.  Also, I could still use a similar system to what I was doing with my own machine, just making sure to push now and then to my clone in the PLT usr/ space.  However, I just moved to using the usr/ space as my coordinating repository because it means the exact same workflow across all my machines.  This avoids a different workflow on my lab machine, which would otherwise hold the coordinating repository.
