I've got a similar issue (maintaining course-related code that should
never leave my laptop or that of one of my colleagues -- our students
become very good at cracking when project deadlines approach), and we
use a USB key to resynchronise. If you've got any more convenient
suggestions, I'd be interested in hearing them, as it's an everyday
issue for me.

I sometimes use |send --context|. I agree that having a way to say
``send just these patches, I know what I'm doing'' would be convenient.

|apply --ignore-hash| (which would also be able to take a raw patch
file), while a potentially useful addition, feels like too much rope
to hang oneself.

Could you please clarify ? Why can't you have multiple repositories
on the target machine ?
