Thank for your response.  I think I confused myself and am making it
harder than it should be.

Ok, so one repository it is, on the dev server.  I think I understand
how it should work, but please go easy on a newbie....just need a few
things clarified.

Ok, so I create the repository on dev.  I checkout the module, make
changes, update the module (commit the module/files???).  Can someone
explain the difference in an "update" and a "commit"?

Say I have tested a change and am ready to move the code to the
production server....what's the best way?

Here's how I can think to get it from the dev repo to the prod box.
Say the module is called "em" and is stored on the prod box in

I would do an initial checkout of the code on the dev repo.

Then after a change was made to a file on the dev repo, I would do the
following to get the changes to prod.

1) On the prod box, make the cwd /home/kevin/em.
2) Connect to the dev box via the pserver and checkout the em module.
3) I assume only the file(s) I've made changes to would be copied over.

Is this correct?  Any suggestions?

Thanks so much for your help with this!
