Alternate Repository Forking

Post by jhicks » Mon Jul 01, 2013 9:38 am

I'm trying to understand alternate repositories based on what I read in the PDF. One hand it seems like you can specify a second repository path but it won't be synchronized. Then the doc mentions setting up a fork, which is what I would like to do. I would like to have changes recorded on my D:\ drive as well as a Dropbox folder.

But either this doesn't work as I thought it would, or I'm not following something in the documentation.

Pictures are always good. :P Especially as the PDF has screen shots of what looks like an earlier build.

Yeah, you know how that happens...
A manual is in the works though.
