AFAIK, no.

What you can do is:
1. Checkout a your projects into a sandbox intended
for reading only.
2. For each task you undertake, make a copy of either
the read-only sandbox or of another sandbox.
3. When you have a connection to the repo, checkin (ie
update then checkin) the sandboxes making sure that
you checkin in the order you made the copies.
