       ucf.conf - site-wide configuration file for ucf


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

       All the variables have reasonable default values, and some may be over
       ridden 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  environ
	  ment	variable.   These  values  override  the  config  file and the

       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	debug
			 ging output, set the value to 1.

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

			 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

			 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 over
			 ridden 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 histor
			 ical  md5sums	are  looked  for  in  either  the file
			 ${filename}.md5sum,  or  the	subdirectory   ${file

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

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


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