Or do you only mean give info about someone else's configs?

It doesn't necessarily mean tracking configuration files and copying them into someone else's computer. Reproducing someone else's setup is usually a more complex task and it doesn't have to be related to any configs. Also, what about the case where a user only wants to reproduce a part of another setup. Moreover, simply installing a bunch of stuffs doesn't teach you anything while reading the way it was done in a comment or note will.

There are already ton of tools to track files but do they really teach people how to reproduce a setup? In most of the cases it's a no and in the cases where it works there are too many architecture/hierarchy differences between the distros/OSs that it mostly fails.

Remember the main user base for this program is the "beginner ricer".
I am not saying that tracking configuration files is a bad thing but does it fulfil our needs?
