So many things can have to be changed when switching hosting providers that sometimes code branching is the best answer (DUH). Here’s my feeble attempt at trying to explain the process during one such move. This actually went on for months, with me merging privately and creating builds for testing.

This was the final branching plan, once I knew everything would merge properly and I was asked to get everyone comfortable.

This is from sometime around 2002.
