This is the way that we deploy sites from our development servers to  
(either our own or our clients') production servers. For maximum  
portability you'll want to use only static resources that are stored in  
the repository. Database connections and featuresources connected to  
unmanaged resources will require some tinkering after deployment, but  
static resources get included in the package and it is pretty much a case  
of load the package and everything works.
