Description

I find it pretty handy to have my dotfiles installed by a configuration management system. For example:

Repos like that are generally good for one person's dotfiles across multiple machines. The idea with this support would be to allow each of us to have our own vim config, git config, shell, etc. installed automatically.

I tried this, and while it's pretty trivial with Puppet, it requires a bit too much elbow-grease in Ansible to be worthwhile.

I'd like to try it.

BTW, if you copy your Puppet snippet, it might be a bit easier.
