I correctly set up the system configuration file manager GNU Stow and the version control system (VCS) Git on my Fujitsu Lifebook so that the former can automatically install system configuration files like modules, whereas the later can track the code in those files.
What I mean for correctly is that in the
ssh folder of the remote
dotfiles repo, there is neither SSH key files nor entries
representing SSH keys in the gitignore file. You may view
Jan Uhlik’s dotfiles on GitLab as an example.

modules, I reinstalled my SSH files after the creation of the
~/.ssh so that this path represents a folder instead of a
