git – manual replay of commits from git log to a different repository?

I have a repository with some commits. I want these commits replayed on a different copy of the repository in the exact same order, same commit messages, etc. I’m hoping there is some combination of git-log, patch, and git-commit that can re-run the commits on the new repository.

php remote development workflow: git, symfony & hudson

Edited: (after seeing Luke’s answer) I’m looking to develop a website and all the work will be done remotely (no local dev server).

Working with repos

When working with repos (I have github in mind), should we also commit third party libraries? For example, boost and poco compile to 5G with samples. Should we upload all that to github?
