Subject: [gentoo-user] How to work with etc-updates.
Date: Tue, 30 Aug 2005 14:13:26
1 As I understand the process etc-update lists new configuration files
2 provided by the program authors. I have tried to define some rules for
3 myself to determine how to handle these new files.
5 1. If I made a change to a file I will never allow the new config file
6 to overwrite the old file.
8 2. If the new config file is a new default file I will accept the new file.
10 3. I will never change a file that is program code, (I am not a programmer).
12 Are these rules sane? What kind of problems could I run into doing this?
13 What would be some better rules to use? I have tried dispatch-conf but I
14 still have to make the same decisions. Am I missing something?
16 Thanks for any advice.
18 Jerry
