I'm learning git, and the test case I'm using it for is keeping a repo of my linux profile settings (.bashrc .profile .tmux.conf etc)
on my main machine, the repo is created at the home folder: base=/home/bvector/ files=/home/bvector/.profile, etc
but when I go to clone the repo on machine2, it goes to /home/bvector/home (as the repo is called home) base=/home/bvector/home/ files=/home/bvector/home/.profile, etc
Is there a way to have the cloned repo be based in my home folder with all the files in the correct place by default? Everything I've read says you cant clone a repo to a nonempty directory, which would make it a lot more cumbersome to have the repo on multiple machines and be able to seamlessly commit changes.
