I'm trying to setup home-dir versioning ala Joey Hess,
but it's a bit unclear how is the whole thing bootstraped.
I though that I should manually git clone (mine version of)
thus obtain the ~/bin/mr and ~/.mrconfig
a then just let 'mr co' finish it all.
but I've run into a problem, cos I don't know how to git clone (mine)
into my home, cos git gives me
fatal: destination directory already exists.
(and I do not have root access on all machines)
and what is more perplexing to me:
Joey's own .mrconfig specifies following checkout cmd for his home:
order = 1
git clone ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/srv/git/joey/home joey
Is he really checking out his home into ~joey/joey ?
