comment Subversion behind router
The simplest solution would be to use local version control. You can put an SVN repo on a USB stick (it's just a folder). Or go all the way and use distributed version control, then you can even have multiple repos.

@KeithS: "One of your boss's primary duties as a software development manager is to remove obstacles that are above your pay grade. " Cool - I'll keep this as a favourite quote :-).

After discussion on meta, I tried to make the question more concrete, in the hopes that it may become on-topic.

Well, seeing the question was closed as "off-topic" without comment, I reposted on SU: superuser.com/questions/422601/…

Oh, I see the question has already attracted 3 close votes. Should I move it to superuser.com?

@ceejayoz: Yes, I realize this may be borderline off-topic. Still, it is a networking question - and runningamajortelecom.stackexchange.com is still in private beta ;-).

comment Are there any good reasons for disabling hardware-assisted virtualization?
-1 The question is not about systems where HV is completely unavailable in the BIOS. It's about why it is shipped disabled, even though it's available.

comment Is there any any merit to routinely restore a linux system, even if unnecessary?
Yes, and additionally, returning to a base snapshot will may also wipe data that is still needed, such as logfiles, temporary files or result data. You could store this on a different partitions, but it still means extra work (and risk).

comment sync time on linux using ntp and persist it
Good point. Note that problems with the clock battery will only affect the RTC / hardware clock. The system clock used by the OS is maintained independently.

@JannePikkarainen: True, ntpdate does no good if there's no network connection, but hwclock does. You need to use hwclock if you want the correct time right after booting.

I took the liberty of expanding your already good answer a bit. Hope you don't mind.
