Matthieu Moy:

One option is to have the symlink in the other direction: make /etc/foo a symlink to $GIT_WORKTREE/foo and version the later.

I do that for the software that supports it, but ssh, for instance, is very picky that ~/.ssh is a directory and such. And at least one of the other files I version-control will be unlinked and overwritten in such a way that that does not work.

I could split the repo up (that seems to be what "vcsh" is doing) and check the parts out in the corresponding directories, but I do like the idea of having one single repo.

Oh, well, if I have the time, maybe I can come up with a patch. There is already some hacks in the "core.symlinks" setting, so I guess it should be possible.
