Some of the packages don't have their own dotfiles config for diversion reasons:

  • no support for any configuration (e.g., the silver searcher)
  • configuration is only system wide (e.g., networkmanager)
  • none is needed, use defaults (e.g., curl)
  • config is part of another package (e.g., fzf, variables part of shell config)

Unless they have their own dotfiles config, the list doesn't include the following kind of required packages:

  • POSIX utilities (e.g., sed)
  • packages not required directly by our own config (e.g., gawk, dependency of translate-shell)
  • standard Linux packages (e.g., util-linux)
  • base Arch Linux packages (e.g., pacman)
