  • I've been keeping my entire home directory under version control for a few years now, and it works great. When I connect to a new machine for the first time, I simply do:

    cvs -d:blah:blah:blah co HOME

    And I get my full home directory, with all of my configs and so on, right away. There's a small quirk though, in that this checks HOME out into a directory called HOME, but I follow it up with:

  • I just rsync the important dot files and scripts from my main desktop to the others. This works the best when everything is running Linux with similar versions.

    # I'm with Andy on this.  I use subversion to sync my vimrc between machines.

    # Moreover, I've customized my .vimrc for both Win32 and otherwise

        set backupdir=c:\\temp\\\\
        set directory=c:\\temp\\\\
        if argc() == 0
