Git - force a pull to overwrite everything, on every pull
I have a CENTRAL bare repo that has 3 developer repositories pulling and pushing to it normally.
I also have 2 other repositories that pull from the CENTRAL bare repo: one is the live server and the other is a test/stage server, each pulling their own respective branch.
The scenario is this: i have a post-update hook script on the CENTRAL repo that automatically accesses the test and live repos and runs a pull command on each. this updates both test and live servers, all depending on what branch has new commits. This all works great.
The problem is this: there may be times in an emergency that files may be directly updated on the server (via ftp or whatever) and the CENTRAL post-update script will then fail since merge/overwrite conflicts will occur. There is no way to avoid this scenario and it is eventual.
What i would like to have happen is this: I want the pull from the live and test sites to ALWAYS overwrite/merge on pull. ALWAYS. These repos will be pull-only as they are not for development.
In all my research, i cannot find a good solution to have a pull ALWAYS force an overwrite of the local files. Is this at all possible? It would make for a great development scenario if so.
Thanks in advance!
