Hi,

I use Org mode & agenda on both my personal and work machines, in a
private git repo repository. I use auto-commit and push automatically
from each machine. It works alright. New items go in inbox.org, and I
refile most to tasks.org, which has a structure a little like this:

* Home :@home:
** TODO Some task to do at home
** TODO Another task to do at home
* Work :@work:
** TODO A task to do at work
** TODO Another work task
* TODO Some task that is not inherently work/home
* WAITING Another task that blurs the barriers

The different sections for Home and Work means that there are not too
many merge conflicts. However, inbox.org is a different matter. My todo
template adds a LOGBOOK with an `Added' property, and it's almost
impossible to resolve the conflicts that result.

I see that
https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/gsoc2012/student-projects/git-merge-tool/
sadly never produced a tool. But I'm wondering if people have some
strategy for how to best deal with git conflicts (perhaps a non-default
merge strategy works better with Org?) or maybe even better: how not to
create conflicts in the first place! 

I could use a different default agenda file for each machine, since the
inbox.org is worst affected. Is anyone doing this? I could extend this
to use {work,home}_tasks.org too, but I kinda like having that "neither
@work nor @home" option... Decisions decisions.

Hi

probably not want you want, since it is not a pure emacs solution (maybe could 
be adapted). For my org agenda files I have the following set-up:

1. One directory ("DIR1") with a collection of org agenda files that are parsed 
at work and at home

2. One directory ("DIR2") I use only for work (since I am not allowed to store 
work related things on outside servers)

3. Host specific emacs config files that declare the agenda files separately for 
each host (home machines and work machines) The functions for these  are more 
or less those from E. Schultes 24.1 emacs starter kit. in these config files 
only the settings that differ between hosts are in, all other config is 
identical for the different machines.

4. Sync only DIR1 via my nextcloud server with the desktop sync client.

So, at work machine I have all agenda files DIR1 + DIR2. DIR1 also includes 
diary and the refile file (set-up similar to B. Hansen). At home I have only the 
DIR1 files synced 

So in a nut-shell, this set-up requires additional host specific config, 
separation of org directories work/home and a file syncer (the set-up might 
work with git, but I never tried that).

Maybe this gives some idea, even if not what you look for
