How to Distribute Movefile with team of Developers without git?

I am now in love with wordmove after using it for 1 day. But With my companies current workflow, we only keep out theme directory (or at most the wp-content) directory under version control.

Because the move file lives at the WordPress root, what is the easiest, most secure way to distribute the move file among a team of developers?

Hey man, nice to hear you love Wordmove. I use it all the time and it is awesome. I have had the same experience where only the wp-content is under our version control.

What I usually do in this case is save my wordmove file in the wp-cotnent or theme folder and name it something like _Movefile.yaml then when I clone my repo to local i just make a copy of the file to where it belongs with the correct name.... is not pretty but it works for me!

Hope this helps.
