I'm well aware. But that does NOT in any way stop you from doing that
once, change it to your need and then put that in the debian dir and
replace the one installed in the debian/tmp (or whatever) dir. And then
keep that updated template updated through the different versions.

That way you have 100% control of what's happening.

And that's _EXACTLY_ my point! Yes it IS fixable! See above.

See my other mail for comments about this.

dashboard.conf => Doesn't exist at all, no config what so ever in the

openstack-configure => Basically just a shell wrapper for pkgos_inifile()

The other I can't remember exactly, in detail, why I have them.

But if I remember correctly, it was Trove that we talked about in
the other mail, where upstream didn't provide a decent template file..

I know, but the sheer amount of files and scripts is starting to be quite
big and cumbersome.

It's not much use to anyone else. Lots of hardcoded values that fit my

I was considering that in the beginning, but I struggled enough just to
set it up with my own values..
