You can clone the repository wherever you want. (I like to keep it in `~/Projects/dotfiles`, with `~/dotfiles` as a symlink.) The bootstrapper script will pull in the latest version and copy the files to your home folder.
```bash
-git clone https://github.com/mathiasbynens/dotfiles.git && cd dotfiles && ./bootstrap.sh
+git clone https://github.com/mathiasbynens/dotfiles.git && cd dotfiles && source bootstrap.sh
```
To update, `cd` into your local `dotfiles` repository and then:
```bash
-./bootstrap.sh
+source bootstrap.sh
```
Alternatively, to update while avoiding the confirmation prompt:
```bash
-./bootstrap.sh -f
+set -- -f; source bootstrap.sh
```
