How do you manage your user configuration files? I have around four home
directories I frequently use. They are sufficiently well enough in sync, but I
have been considering to actually use some file management to synchronize them
better. I'm talking about files such as shell config, ssh config, .vimrc etc.
I had some discussions about this before, and the consensus had been that
some version control system probably is best. Git seemed to be a good
candidate; I remember having read about things like this a dozen years ago when
CVS was still common and Subversion was new.
So dear lazyweb, what are your experiences with managing your user
configuration? What setup would you recommend?
Update: See vcs-home
various related links and at least five different ways of doing this.
, a multi-repository VCS wrapper
seems particularly well at this.
