For whatever reason, direct connection between A and B is not allowed,
but we can move data from A to B via some mechanism (CD, email, etc).
We want to update R2 with developments made on branch master in R1.

+To create the bundle you have to specify the basis. You have some options:
+
+- Without basis.
++
+This is useful when sending the whole history.

+- Using temporally tags.

We set a tag in R1 (lastR2bundle) after the previous such transport,
and move it afterwards to help build the bundle.
-in R1 on A:
-
------------
$ git-bundle create mybundle master ^lastR2bundle
$ git tag -f lastR2bundle master

-(move mybundle from A to B by some mechanism)
+- Using a tag present in both repositories

+- A basis based on time.

+- With a limit on the number of commits

-$ git-bundle verify mybundle
