Fresh host setup / bootstrapping for Debian and derivatives.
DISCLAIMER: These scripts and configs set things up they way I like it, which means you don't need to. I don't install things globally that I don't need to be globally available, i.e. stuff ends up in $HOME more than is usually the case. All scripts are idempotent, i.e. you can call them as often as you like and they still "do the right thing" (keeping existing things untouched or updating them). Even if you don't use the configs, the provided helper functions and install scripts might still be useful to roll your own setup.
- Debian 6 (Squeeze),
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise),
- anything you test it on, and report back to me.
