Improve config upgrade – Ep 03 – GSoC results

August 31, 2010


Thanks to Google, Debian and more importantly Krzysztof Tyszecki, the “accept” feature discussed in episode 2 is now implemented and tested in Config::Model 1.206 and Config::Model::Itself 1.216.

Next task is to create a minimal model to enable upgrades for cupsd.conf.  This minimal model will heavily use the new “accept” feature coded during this GSoC. Cups configuration is an interesting use case because:

  • cupsd.conf is often upgraded (at least in Debian/sid)
  • its syntax and structures are more complex than configuration found in INI files (although, cupsd.conf needs a new apache like read/write backend :-/ …)

Next episode should provide more details on the work required to provide this minimal model.

All the best
