So, I am in the last stages of development of a really big project and I need to figure out a way to package future patches and updates for the client in order for them to manually update the project on prod server.

For reasons I cannot specify here, they will not use any automated process, and we need to provide regular patches and updates for the next year.

So I was thinking of using git archive to package changed files from our repo for every new commit, or series of commits, and just give them that, along with any database schema updates as sql files (again, no automation can be used).

We are talking about a large PHP + MySQL app, and cannot use automated deployment strategies.

I feel there must be a better way to do this, but this is the best I could come up with so far.

What do you people think?

Any ideeas?
