Christopher,

Thanks for the heads up. When I said "they will go with me" I meant that I and the repositories would no longer exist within the office since, at the time, there was nowhere else for me to put them not that I was bringing it with me, if that makes any sense.

As of yesterday we have a repository on our server and I have imported everything into that.
