How do you handle file permissions? E.g. .ssh directory contents or PGP
key files having restricted permissions and a git checkout pulling them
out of the repository with more lax default permissions based on your
umask (at least I think that's what it does). IIRC Joey Hess wrote some
kind of tool to use git to track /etc changes and had to add something
on top to deal with permissions and file ownership. I'd think you'd need
to do something similar.
