Could you be more pedantic in your scenario?
You originally suggested to crontab to a "working copy under backup".
To me that means my workstation is periodically executing `git push
myserver` where myserver is a remote repo setup in .git/config. If
this is the case you have in mind then if a change I made creates an
unresolvable conflict (e.g., modification of the exact same line) then
my cron'ed `git push` cannot resolve my conflict and my pushes fail.
The only other way I can interpret your comment is that my server has
a crontab to `git pull` from all the workstations. Again, the git
pull could hit an unresolvable conflict and the pulls fail.
