NAME

       ucf.conf - site-wide configuration file for ucf

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/ucf.conf

DESCRIPTION

       The  file  /etc/ucf.conf  is  actually  a Bourne Shell snippet included
       during the package build process, and  hence  you  may  put  any  shell
       directive  in  that  file  (just  make  very sure you know what you are
       doing).

       All the variables have reasonable  default  values,  and  some  may  be
       overridden  on a per run or a per individual basis by using environment
       variables, and all configurable variables can be overridden by  options
       to the scripts themselves.

       The value of a variable can be set so:

       a) Defaults  exist  in  the rules file. These are the values used if no
          customization is done.

       b) Some variables can be set in the config file  /etc/ucf.conf.   These
          values override the defaults.

       c) Some   variables   can  also  be  set  by  setting  a  corresponding
          environment variable.  These values override the config file and the
          defaults.

       d) Using script command line options. All configurable variables may be
          set by this method, and will override the other methods above.

Configuration File options

       At the moment, the user modifiable variables supported are:

       DEBUG             Debugging information: The default  value  is  0  (no
                         debugging   information   is   printed).   To  enable
                         debugging output, set the value to 1.

       VERBOSE           Verbosity: The default value is 0 (quiet). To  change
                         the default behavior, set the value to 1.

       conf_force_conffold
                         Force  the installed file to be retained. The default
                         is to have  this  variable  unset,  which  makes  the
                         script  ask in case of doubt.  This can be overridden
                         by the environment variable UCF_FORCE_CONFFOLD

       conf_force_conffnew
                         Force  the  installed  file  to  be  overridden.  The
                         default  is  to have this variable unset, which makes
                         the script  ask  in  case  of  doubt.   This  can  be
                         overridden     by     the     environment    variable
                         UCF_FORCE_CONFFNEW

       conf_source_dir   This is the directory where  the  historical  md5sums
                         for   a  file  are  looked  for.   Specifically,  the
                         historical md5sums are looked for in either the  file
                         ${filename}.md5sum,      or      the     subdirectory
                         ${filename}.md5sum.d/

       conf_old_mdsum_file
                         Force the historical md5sums to  be  read  from  this
                         file,  rather than defaulting to living in the source
                         directory.  Setting this option overrides settings in
                         the environment variable UCF_OLD_MDSUM_FILE

Files

       System-wide defaults are placed in /etc/ucf.conf,

BUGS

       There are no bugs.  Any resemblance thereof is delirium. Really.
