Description R P Herrold 2002-11-25 07:08:06 UTC
The present (v 2.3.3-3) result ks.cfg files are unversioned and undated. May we have someting added along the lines of: version: 2.3.3-3 date: 2002-11-25 vendor-local: accept and ignore arbitrary data so that secondary management tools can identify, parse and manipulate these files more intelligently, please.

Created attachment 86268 [details] sample showing the proposed changes

The version and date fields are no problem, but I'm not sure about the vendor-local part. Are you wanting that exposed in the UI?
Comment 3 R P Herrold 2002-11-26 20:34:27 UTC
Mebbe I should have split the RFE, because the version and date require no user input handling, too. /me bad. My thought was to provide for a optional 'comment' type field, not hidden with a leading # -- avoiding the leading # permits avoiding the ugliness in parsing which chkconfig has to do. Makes for simpler regex's and so forth It seems to make sense either on a separate tab of its own, maybe called 'Comment', or at the bottom of the present Basic Configuration; _maybe_ it might make sense on Post Configuration, but not really ... My thought was to have a panel or section which says something like: "You may optionally identify this configuration file with a comment which is otherwise ignored by the Installer; some vendors may user this field to embed local vendor configuration system management information." and a one line text entry field.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-12-16 18:03:17 UTC
I see your point, but I'm going to say no to this one...mainly because the UI is cluttered enough as it is. I'm really trying to resist adding more widgets to the UI. Closing as 'wontfix'.
