The goal is / was to have asdf.git be a bare git repo (in fact, I  
thought it was!). The files in public_html aren't really "checked  
out", they are rsynced there as part of the generated website. Aside  
from having the same names, is there a reason to think that they are  
checked out? So I think what I want things to look like is

	asdf.git						 a bare repo
		(internal files)
	other files for the website

thanks for this information.
