The repository *must* be separate from the website and developer

Here are my ideas, which I stole from smart people :-) like Nik
Clayton and Phillip Greenspun.

Use Makefiles and the make utility to implement the triggering:

   make checkout     to checkout a site into a new working
   make update       to commit/update changes in a working
   make test         to put the latest version in the test site,
                     if you have one
   make production   to put the latest version in the live
                     production site

pserver commands allow for the repository, development, test and
host servers to be different, which is usually a good practice.
