How would you rollback?

After looking into WordMove more I could not find anything on rollback in case something did break with my upgrades to the site. How would you go about rolling back in case something broke on an upgrade Jesse?

I believe you would just need to have a backup of whatever it is you are editing incase it doesn't work out. Sort like if you want to edit your theme, make a child theme and test the edits there.

Well I know that Mark Jaquith's version of WP Skeleton has the ability to roll back to older versions with Capistrano, but I also think that is due to hooking it up to a git repo.

I think instead of using WordMove at this point I'm going to be working with dploy.io as it has a rollback feature and is pretty simple to implement. You just simply connect it to your bitbucket repo and deployments can be automatic. Pretty nifty stuff!
