Projects / rconftool


rconftool is a reimplementation of Sam Varshavchik's sysconftool in Ruby. Its purpose is to keep configuration files "fresh" when upgrading an application from one version to another, ensuring that all necessary settings are present and that obsolete ones are removed. To use it, application writers need to distribute their config files marked up with some simple metadata in comments, and arrange for the "make install" or "make install-configure" target to invoke rconftool. rconftool can be called as a library function or from the command line. It can also install groups of files recursively from one directory tree into another.
