Linux: Use Git to backup/store /etc directory

If more than one person has to manage a server, it might come in handy to have some kind of versioning of the config files.
But also having the possibility to keep track of local configuration changes in your system could be very usefull.

I found 2 tools that can help you:

1. etckepper

etckeeper is a collection of tools to let /etc be stored in a git, mercurial, darcs, or bzr repository. It hooks into apt (and other package managers including yum and pacman-g2) to automatically commit changes made to /etc during package upgrades. It tracks file metadata that revison control systems do not normally support, but that is important for /etc, such as the permissions of /etc/shadow. It’s quite modular and configurable, while also being simple to use if you understand the basics of working with revision control.

2. Changetrack:

Changetrack logs modifications of a set of files, and allows recovery of the tracked files from any stage of development. The changes are presented in a powerful web-based form, a text file, or an email message. A handful of options allow situation-specific configuration, but the code is readily available for more complex modifications.
