Im putting together a thumb drive that boots into an evil operating system (yes, that one), and has some applications and data on it. It would be nice to have the whole thing under version control. Yes, I know this is unconventional.
It seems to me that I might create a folder for this project, which would contain the repository, and a shortcut to the drive (/dev/sd_n_), and track the shortcut as a binary file.
Im new to VCS, but I know about the concept of filters for binary files. Is there one for ntfs? I dont think I would track changes to individual files, but rather track changes to sectors.
Any help at all will be appreciated, even if youre just telling me that this is impossible or impractical.
