I have a really old install of Debian on my Thinkpad, and I want to refresh it now that I'm using it again. However, I have a LOT of old scripts all over this install for beauty fixes, shortcuts, and keybinds.
These scripts are in various locations all over the install, and I want to send them all to a single 'catch-all' repo in github to save/share in case I need them, sort of like an online folder. But seeing as git's general purpose is to track changes in projects, I'm not sure how to do this without pulling the entire repo into my working directory, committing the files I want, and then pushing the whole thing back.
Is there a way to just send individual files to a repo without having to pull the whole repo? Am I wrong in trying to use github for this purpose?
