Fedora Update Notification
2011-02-13 08:11:03

Name        : etckeeper
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 0.52
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://kitenet.net/~joey/code/etckeeper/
Summary     : Store /etc in a SCM system (git, mercurial, bzr or darcs)
Description :
The etckeeper program is a tool to let /etc be stored in a git,
mercurial, bzr or darcs repository. It hooks into yum to automatically
commit changes made to /etc during package upgrades. It tracks file
metadata that version control systems do not normally support, but that
is important for /etc, such as the permissions of /etc/shadow. It's
quite modular and configurable, while also being simple to use if you
understand the basics of working with version control.

The default backend is git, if want to use a another backend please
install the appropriate tool (mercurial, darcs or bzr).
To use bzr as backend, please also install the etckeeper-bzr package.

To start using the package please read /usr/share/doc/etckeeper-0.52/README
