No it doesn't.  The live copy on the web would simply be a current

The pattern would become:

1. Develop, develop, develop.
2. Commit (which if svn[1] were used, is also a push to central).
3. <optional>Review of changes</optional>
4. Login to bender, proceed to web directory, update local copy.

This could all be done on the live copy to, but with a repo living
outside the code tree, easier testing is facilitated without affecting
the live stuff.


[1] I have a personal distaste for svn but it's likely the logical
    choice given that all other project-wide type stuff lives in svn
