What's the best way to deploy a new FuelCMS site using git?

edited February 2015 in Installation
Is there a way to deploy FuelCMS as a git submodule of my git repo so that updating FuelCMS is done with a pull rather than downloading a zip and copy/pasting it into my folder?

    We normally set it up as an external repo that we pull from. We'll have one for our project and another for FUEL to do periodic updates.

    Any chance you could explain how you're doing this? Are you using git submodules? If the code for your project is in /fuel/application how do you handle this? Are you using .gitignore directives?

    We don't use a submodule but just another remote repo that points to here:

    We normally will check out a fresh copy from GitHub, then setup a remote repo for our own development on that project which we push our changes to.

    Then periodically, we do a pull from the FUEL GitHub repo, to merge in any changes from GitHub. There can occasionally be conflict, which sometimes happens if there are changes to the fuel/application/config files or fuel/application/view files, but not very often. Make sense?
