UCF.CONF(5)                          Debian GNU/Linux manual                          UCF.CONF(5)

NAME
       ucf.conf - site-wide configuration file for ucf

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/ucf.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The  file  /etc/ucf.conf  is  actually  a Bourne Shell snippet included during the package
       build process, and hence you may put any shell directive in that file (just make very sure
       you know what you are doing).

       All  the variables have reasonable default values, and some may be overridden on a per run
       or a per individual basis by using environment variables, and all  configurable  variables
       can be overridden by options to the scripts themselves.

       The value of a variable can be set so:

       a) Defaults  exist  in  the  rules  file. These are the values used if no customization is
          done.

       b) Some variables can be set in the config file /etc/ucf.conf.  These values override  the
          defaults.

       c) Some  variables can also be set by setting a corresponding environment variable.  These
          values override the config file and the defaults.

       d) Using script command line options. All  configurable  variables  may  be  set  by  this
          method, and will override the other methods above.

Configuration File options
       At the moment, the user modifiable variables supported are:

       DEBUG             Debugging  information: The default value is 0 (no debugging information
                         is printed). To enable debugging output, set the value to 1.

       VERBOSE           Verbosity: The default value is 0 (quiet). To change the default  behav‐
                         ior, set the value to 1.

       conf_force_conffold
                         Force  the  installed  file  to be retained. The default is to have this
                         variable unset, which makes the script ask in case of doubt.   This  can
                         be overridden by the environment variable UCF_FORCE_CONFFOLD

       conf_force_conffnew
                         Force  the  installed file to be overridden. The default is to have this
                         variable unset, which makes the script ask in case of doubt.   This  can
                         be overridden by the environment variable UCF_FORCE_CONFFNEW

       conf_source_dir   This is the directory where the historical md5sums for a file are looked
                         for.  Specifically, the historical md5sums are looked for in either  the
                         file ${filename}.md5sum, or the subdirectory ${filename}.md5sum.d/

       conf_old_mdsum_file
                         Force  the  historical  md5sums  to  be read from this file, rather than
                         defaulting to living in the source directory.  Setting this option over‐
                         rides settings in the environment variable UCF_OLD_MDSUM_FILE

Files
       System-wide defaults are placed in /etc/ucf.conf,

BUGS
       There are no bugs.  Any resemblance thereof is delirium. Really.
