That's pretty much what I do, except that my dotfiles directory is a
public repo: https://github.com/carlohamalainen/dotfiles
I should keep a separate repo for private things like .ssh.

I also have a shell script that I can download from a semi-secret
location that will wget a few key dot files (bashrc-extra, .gitconfig,
.screenrc, and .vimrc) from my public repo and drop them into my home
directory. I found this useful in my previous job where I set up about a
billion new VMs and wanted a sane environment to get things done quickly.
