We need a local copy of the hosted bitbucket git repository to satisfy our escrow agreements.

You FAQ details that "Backups are managed by the Bitbucket team. You will not have to do anything yourself" but this is an issue for us because we need a copy for our escrow deposits. Is there a way of us getting and maintaining our own copy of the repository. Under SVN we used synsync to download newer revisions, is there any equivalent we can use for git?

Raise support call with Atlassian and got the following response:

Good day to you. Well, since BitBucket is using Git & Hg, whatever your repository is, you can always clone it to a local directory for safe keeping, or for simply doing changes locally before pushing them to your BitBucket repository, here's a page that explains Forking repository and cloning it locally, you can also keep that local copy of yours sync with your BitBucket repository by doing pull requests, all that explained here:

Hope this clarifies some of the doubts you had, feel free to ask more questions.

In case of GIT you anyways have the whole repository once you clone it on your machine.

Yes, but once uploaded the host environment will be responsible for the repository and we will need to somehow syncronise that with a local copy for an escrow deposit.

Hi. Yes, that's correct. Pull revisions from the hosted onDemand environment to what is, at present, a Solaris 10 SPARC environment with the process fired from cron which is then FTP'd to a windows 2000 Server. Direct to the windows 2000 Server would be the ideal. Thanks.

you need to pull the updates regularly, what is host environment in this case ?
