Finally got my dotfiles all up at GitLab:
They are still a mess but I’m working hard on improving that.

And also a huge thanks to @amolith for showing me the world of dotfile managers!

@Ghosty @amolith Nice to be able to review other's configuration. Thanks.

But what is a dotfile manager?

@hdasch Really, they just automate the deployment of dotfiles so it's a lot faster, simpler, safer, etc.

@amolith Sounds useful. I should give it try. I see Arch lists several alternatives. Do you have a suggestion?

@hdasch Like I said, I've been using stow for a very long time so it's the one I'm most familiar with. However, @Ghosty found a really cool one called yadm that looks a lot better than stow. I plan to migrate to it as soon as I have time.
