[PATCH 0/2] Config fragment tools

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Last week at Plumbers, Darren Hart and I hosted a BOF on config fragments.
I wanted to say thanks to all the hungry attendees (8pm on the evening where
dinner was fend-for-yourself made it especially hard to draw a crowd) for
their thoughts and discussion. 

There I promised to send out some patches to try to get some common tooling
pushed upstream. I realize this isn't difficult code, but after seeing
almost every distro and build system re-implement the same basic
functionality over and over, it seems like there should be some tooling for
this common use case.

I'm sure this tooling won't work for everyone, and I expect it will need to
evolve to adapt for various use cases, but I wanted to push it out so that I
could make concrete what I was describing in the talk, as well as get some
wider feedback.

So let me know if you have any comments or thoughts!
