Howdy all, I'm just starting the journey of a home directory in VCS.
Like many others, I intend to keep configuration files ("dot files") separated into common, roaming configuration, and local, site-specific configuration, to be combined together on each machine. For me, this begins with a directory tree to store these "roaming profile" configuration files, named '$HOME/.roam/'. $HOME/.roam/ .screen/ screenrc Then, each machine is configured with a symlink to that common "roaming" configuration. $HOME/ .screenrc # has a directive to include '.screen/screenrc' .screen/ screenrc -> ../.roam/.screen/screenrc screenrc-local My question is: What strategy would you advise to automate deployment of this to a new machine, and to deploy updates on existing machines when it changes in the VCS? -- \ “The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure | `\ and the intelligent are full of doubt.” —Bertrand Russell | _o__) | Ben Finney _______________________________________________ vcs-home mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.madduck.net/listinfo/vcs-home
