I just set up a dev shop on Partners for a client. My question is, when I move this to a live, paid site, how can I keep working on it? Obviously, I don't want to keep experimenting and working on a live site. I prefer t have a dev copy and deploy my chnages when I am ready.

Has anybody done this? What are the steps?

What are you working on? Just a theme? Work on those in unpublished versions.

OR 

If it is more then setup another development site, and you will have to manage synching the information between the two...

It is more the second one. But the question is how to sync the information between the two. Do I have to do it manually? Is it possible to have a local, desktop environment for development and deploy tolive site when ready?

Same problem here. How is this a $100B platform when there is no way to include a simple dev server in the development process?

Mind-boggling.
