In my last post about moving an existing Drupal Git repository into Acquia Dev Cloud without losing history, the best way I could put together to actually merge in the Git repository was to use a rather obtuse (if effective) git filter-branch command. Thankfully, Barry Jaspan, the project owner of Dev Cloud, was kind enough to point out that there was an easier way.

Moving an Existing Drupal Git Repository into Acquia Dev Cloud without Losing History

Tue, 04/10/2012 - 20:01 -- Russell Keppner

So after much investigation and deliberation, we decided as a shop to do our Drupal hosting on Acquia Dev Cloud. We’ve been working our way up the abstraction stack (first we got out of taking care of hardware, moving everything to hosted services or virtual private servers in the cloud), and luckily this takes us about as far as we can go. No more initial build-out of a new web server, and no more handling OS-level security upgrades. Woohoo! Now I can just focus on building cool sites.
