In my experience, I have only found a need to version /etc and $HOME
(and really only parts of $HOME, as opposed to all of it).
I find that git works really well for that. In particular, on Debian
you can install etckeeper and it will automatically commit any changes
to /etc before a package installation run, after a package installation
run, and on a daily basis. You can also manually commit and customize
More than that might be overkill and/or more trouble than it is worth.
