After having my homedirs in subversion for years, moved this collection to Git in 2014 and standardised over all my machines.

To install:

mkdir ~/.dot
cd ~/.dot
clone <url>
cd dotfiles    # this takes you to the freshly cloned ~/.dot/dotfiles
sh  # follow the instructions and install the files in the homedir

Fix for shift+F6 in tmux (and screen probably)

In tmux, do infocmp > screen-256color. Add the line kf16=\E[17;2~, and compile the file with tic. This will result in ~/.terminfo/s/screen-256color with the correct keycode for shift+F6. .tmux.conf needs the line setw -g xterm-keys on for it to register correctly.

~/.git_repos config file

The update_repos script takes the ~/.git_repos config file and lets you update and clone your projects automatically (or at least in a batch). In the example the first four repos are located in ~/workspace/projects/github, and the other two in workspace/projects/others and workspace/projects/private respectively; then the workspace and group are empty, so mydocs is cloned into the homedir. At the moment, only paths relative to the user's homedir are supported.
