A way to get configs

I'm wondering what apps specifically do you use? I think we can help you better if we know what those are.
For example Qtractor, but I don't have a list of apps I'm using, I want be able to handle the app that will be written tomorrow too.
For Qtractor it's easy to find the configuration in /home/rocketmouse/.config/rncbc.org/, so I could copy and restore it, but I hope there's a better way, than to do it like this. HOME=/path/foo app might work for some apps.
I think someone else said the same, but i really think you should consider a version system like git. A real configuration system like cfengine could also work, but might be a bit overkill for this situation.
The cleanest would be if the apps run under a dedicated user account, so that you can clear everything without worrying about losing stuff.
When this is setup, all you have to do is create the necessary configurations and add (and tag) those to your repository.
Then, for every new production, clear the homedir, checkout the right config-set and do your thing.
If necessary, you could do this on an application-by-application base, though that could get messy soon...
Hope that helps.
