  1. make installer settings optional

    1. move from git submodules to composer(or other alternative like pip)
    2. make vim submodules selectable for install
    3. make git configuration optimal
    4. add check for installing configurations check that tech exists.. vim, zsh, grc, ccze, git, curl, git-flow
    5. Rewrite install script with python or haskell (study integration with capistrano)
  2. make zsh themes optional

    1. powerline
    2. list options to choose from
    3. list oh-my-zsh plugins –installed by default & link to a list with all
  3. Complete the script that copies necesarry files on subservers

    1. Add option to clone|check
    2. interactive git config
    3. do you want to confirm each git setting
    4. add option to complete a config file using a template for deploy
    5. verify if .gitconfig exists, generate backup and diff
  4. Document user made functions

    1. Document emag functions with sugestions and help – move to repo
    2. Create a command that lists avaiable user made functions
    3. Add swiss army knife functions & document them
  5. Config as beeing client

    1. server vs client (test options for bash users too)
    2. limited rights on cloning… maybe no repo, just files or remove right to push to master directly
    3. deploy on clients with capistrano
