You're missing the fact that "git push" merely copies the changes to
the remote object store. It doesn't (by default) check them out, so
they're not visible in the filesystem. There are hooks that allow you
to do the checkout when a new object arrives if you want to do that,
or you could use a VCS like darcs that does represent the changes in
the filesystem immediately. Or just use rsync.
