Hey, guys, sorry to dig up this old thread, don't know if someone
still is interested in this script.

I just want to inform you guys that a new version 0.3 is released
recently with a bunch of bug fixes as well as a new feature which
allows dotploy to deploy .dotfiles from a local path outside the dot
files repo or even from a VCS source(currently, only Git is supported)
in the same manner as the makepkg does.
