You might want to look at the latest in git annex:


For those not aware, git annex is an add-on written by Joey Hess that
allows one to treat files that one wouldn't want to bloat a git
repository with (i.e. photos & music) pretty much as though they were in
a git repository, with the added bonus that if you delete them, they're
not still cluttering up the repository.

More info here: http://git-annex.branchable.com/

As mentioned on the "what git annex is not" page there, someone is
building a FUSE filesystem on top of git annex called ShareBox:


Cheers, Phil.
