Using git to deploy/update source code to production server

I've just tried the we-all-know-what-it-is tool, git, to deploy and update changes to production server:


1. On my development computer, commit all changes and push to the repository:

$ git add -A .
$ git commit -m "Before deploying"
$ git push origin master


2. On the production server:

$ git clone myaccount@my.repo.address


3. In the development machine, update code, commit, and push to repository:

$ git add -A .
$ git commit -m "Updates"
$ git push origin master


4. In production server, pull code from master:


$ git pull origin master



...and so on


It's quite interesting!
