1 Is there any way to improve the granularity in the merge function of
2 dispatch-conf, or make it more intelligent?
4 The particular situation where it gives me problems is in configuration
5 files where the value of an option has been manually changed following
6 initial installation, then on an upgrade a new option is added close to
7 the one previously changed. In this situation, dispatch-conf almost
8 invariably wants to reset the changed option line back to its default.
9 When selecting 'm' to merge changes it will present a left hand side
10 with the already existing value (often plus other lines) with the right
11 hand side with the default lines for both the existing line(s) and the
12 new ones.
