I'd like to disable autosaves and backups when using tramp, because I neither want to save stuff from remote machines nor stuff belonging to root in my backup/autosave directory. How to do that?
I have read the documentation about tramp autosave and backup.
In particular I have read the suggestion
(add-to-list 'backup-directory-alist (cons tramp-file-name-regexp nil))
Unfortunately I fail to grasp if that is valid if
'backup-directory-alist already contains an entry for my other backup files
(".*" . ,init-backup-directory).
Besides disabling backups, disabling autosave would also be nice.
