bcfg2-lint.conf - configuration parameters for bcfg2-lint
bcfg2-lint.conf includes configuration parameters for
The file is INI-style and consists of sections and options. A section
begins with the name of the sections in square brackets and continues
until the next section begins.
Options are specified in the form 'name = value'.
The file is line-based each newline-terminated line represents either a
comment, a section name or an option.
Any line beginning with a hash (#) is ignored, as are lines containing
The file consists of one [lint] section, up to one [errors] section,
and then any number of plugin-specific sections, documented below.
(Note that this makes it quite feasible to combine your bcfg2-lint.conf
into your bcfg2.conf(5) file, if you so desire.)
These options apply to bcfg2-lint generally, and must be in the [lint]
A comma-delimited list of plugins to run. By default, all
plugins are run. This can be overridden by listing plugins on
the command line. See bcfg2-lint(8) for a list of the available
Error handling is configured in the [errors] section. Each option
should be the name of an error and one of error , warning , or silent ,
which tells bcfg2-lint(8) how to handle the warning. Error names and
their defaults can be displayed by running bcfg2-lint(8) with the
These options apply only to a single plugin. Each option should be in
a section named for its plugin; for instance, options for the InfoXML
plugin would be in a section called [InfoXML]
If a plugin is not listed below, then it has no configuration.
In many cases, the behavior of a plugin can be configured by modifying
how errors from it are handled. See ERROR HANDLING , above.
The Comments plugin configuration specifies which VCS keywords
and comments are required for which file types. The valid types
of file are global (all file types), bundler (non-templated
bundle files), sgenshi (templated bundle files), properties
(property files), cfg (non-templated Cfg files), tgenshi
(templated Cfg files), infoxml (info.xml files), and probe
The specific types (i.e., types other than "global") all
supplement global; they do not override it. The exception is if
you specify an empty option, e.g.:
By default, the $Id$ keyword is checked for and nothing else.
Multiple keywords or comments should be comma-delimited.
Ensure that files of the specified type have the given VCS
keyword. Do not include the dollar signs. I.e.:
infoxml_keywords = Revision
infoxml_keywords = $Revision$
Ensure that files of the specified type have a comment
containing the given string. In XML files, only comments are
checked. In plain text files, all lines are checked since
comment characters may vary.
· required_attrs A comma-delimited list of attributes to require
on <Info> tags. Default is "owner,group,perms".
· threshold The threshold at which MergeFiles will suggest
merging config files and probes. Default is 75% similar.
· schema The full path to the XML Schema files. Default is
"/usr/share/bcfg2/schema". This can be overridden with the
--schema command-line option
