I've touched on this before which didn't get much attention but it would be really handy to have git repos generated on site creation to allow the cloning of the site dir for theming out of sites/sitename/themes offering version control on sites for theme changes etc and perhaps a front end commit history in the aegir panel that way we'd get better use of the dev/stage/live setups in octopus by default.
So in short, we'd happily pay to have these aspects in boa:
- Git repo initialized on site creation only for the site directory or an extra button to add it if site already exists like verify/backup/clone etc.
(Obviously keep all other code in makefile vcs etc)
- remote access to a url for clone/push changes
- commit history in aegir site UI (similar to pantheon)
