Interesting, but I think I'll stick with my own system[1]. I organize by task, not repo or program. Also I try to do a minimum of symlinking, instead relying on convention and PATH manipulation.

Edit: I don't mean to discourage you, by the way. The more variety in dotfile management the better.

Organising by task sounds very similar to our goals.

One of fresh's major features is being able to source a subset of another's dotfiles (at a per file level). For example, in my office we are all using fresh to source common git aliases.

This module/task idea is certainly interesting and is something we have been thinking about. Thanks for your feedback.
