This emacs folder sits in my AeroFS folder (Linux/OSX/Windows) with the following in my .emacs file:
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/AeroFS/emacs-init") (load "init") (custom-set-variables ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom. ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful. ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance. ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right. '(blink-cursor-mode nil) '(column-number-mode t) '(cua-enable-cua-keys nil) '(cua-mode t nil (cua-base)) '(ergoemacs-mode-used "5.8.0") '(ergoemacs-theme nil) '(fringe-mode (quote (nil . 0)) nil (fringe)) '(kill-ring-max 600) '(py-pychecker-command "pychecker.sh") '(py-pychecker-command-args (quote (""))) '(python-check-command "pychecker.sh") '(save-place t nil (saveplace)) '(show-paren-mode t) '(tool-bar-mode nil) '(uniquify-buffer-name-style (quote forward) nil (uniquify))) (custom-set-faces ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom. ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful. ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance. ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.

- does add-to-list and load-path for stuff in the vendor folder
- loads stuff from the user folder
- contains system specific initialization files, e.g. bindings.el, require.el, global.el, env.el
- contains files for setting/configuring items in the vendor folder
- some add-on functionality
I don't have Dropbox running on all the machines I work on, e.g. lab computers at work, so I keep a copy on Github for easy access.
