First - I am not sure what Edgar is talking about - perhaps he
mistakenly thought you were asking about Monticello2 which hasn't gotten
a remote repository protocol yet.

But Monticello deals *just perfectly fine* with remote repositories - of
different kinds. So doing collaborative work using Monticello is really

In Gjallar we just serve a directory with all snapshots using Apache -
readonly for the public. And then we access the exact same dir using
pureFtpd - a really nice ftp daemon. This way we can give out a
username/password for a selected set of committers.

But if you work internally in a company the *trivial* way to share is by
using a shared file directory on some file server. That's it.
