#16329 closed enhancement (fixed)

Inheritance of macports.conf configuration files

Reported by: adambyrtek@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone: MacPorts 1.7.0
Component: base Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: configuration patch Cc: adambyrtek@…
Port:

Description

There are two possible locations of MacPorts configuration file:
$prefix/etc/macports.conf
$home/.macports/macports.conf

Currently user defined file if present *substitutes* the global file completely. The attached patch allows user to override only a few configuration options, keeping the global file as a default for other options. This is more in line with other Unix tools and more convenient, as often user only wants to tweak a few options keeping the rest in place.

Quite trivial yet very useful change. Discussed recently on macports-users and more than a year ago at macports-dev:
