That said, though, there are some projects so modest they don't
require dedicated repositories. I have a repo called "shed" - it's a
collection of random tools that I've put together, no more logical
grouping exists. Generally each one is a single file, although I have
a couple of related ones in there. (Code at if anyone's curious.) If I have an idea
for a program that doesn't really merit a full repo, I'll just save it
into shed. Keeps the "where did I put that, what did I call that" to a
minimum :)
