Comment 3 Matthias Saou 2008-12-22 16:22:11 UTC
Added in 1.4.20-2, only in devel for now. Note that from my testing, this makes it quite hard to find the errors in the conf.d/*.conf files since lighttpd reports the error as being on the include_shell line from the main configuration. But I understand how useful this can be, which is why I've included the change.
