Sharing environments when using dev packages

I am using an environment that needs MAT.jl so I had to install it as a dev package with some fixes to make it work with 1.0. I want to share that environment with my laptop. But there is an issue where Pkg3 seems to hard code the dev package location so I am not able use it seamlessly. On the server JULIA_PKG_DEPOT is different to that of my laptop so one needs to use dev each time when switching systems. Is there an easier way to use dev packages?

Push your changes to a branch and then add the branch instead of using dev.
