Improve config upgrade – Ep 03 – GSoC implementation
Thanks to Google, Debian and more importantly Krzysztof Tyszecki, the “accept” feature discussed in episode 2 is now implemented 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 needsa new apache like read/write backend …)
Next episode should provide more details on the work required to provide this minimal model.
All the best
