I think it could be useful to have a notion of repository-wide
The UI I have in mind is something like a changepref patch with the name
By setting this, you can give Darcs one place to look for version-
Things which would then go under that directory would be:
- boring file
- email (this needs another feature, will follow-up with ticket)
- motd (ditto)
The idea is to avoid having to set a lot of different preference
settings when really what you want is version-controlled metadata.
If there is a boringfile and binariesfile pref, they would override the
value of repoprefsdir
Action required to make this idea work in the current form: verify with
some hand-written patches that old darcsen (say 1.0.9) will cope
gracefully with new changepref types.
