Request from WPE Support: If we had a way of only syncing the database while using Local this would allow Git to work alongside it so they get both advantages. Versioning files, while also allowing customers to deploy database changes without 1) contacting support, 2) logging in via SSH, importing, search & replacing etc.
If we could push/pull only the database everything else is handled for them. It should be a pretty big QOL improvement.
