    You do not need to run a git server to share a git repository between different stations.
    I like to separate strage & sync from the version control. You might see the advantage if you migrate from svn to git.

    You only need 4 steps to create a Dropbox or OneDrive [insert your storage provider here] synced git repro:

    1. Create git repro

      git init --bare ~/OneDrive/gits/wlanrepo.git

    2. Add git to your project (the project should not be on your Dropbox/Onedrive)
      cd ~/projects/sites/wlanboy
      git init
      git add --all
      git commit -m “Initial commit of project wlanboy"

    3. Add the git repro as remote
      git remote add origin ~/OneDrive/gits/wlanrepo.git

    4. Push everything to your remote repro
      cd ~/projects/sites/wlanboy
      git push --set-upstream origin master


    Try a "git log" and you will see that everything git-like is working.
