Yeah, that's the cost of compatibility with upstream so conf fragment printed 
by "etcdctl member add" could be used as-is without translation to old 
variable convention. We had to move to new upstream variable names, also to 
avoid collisions with generic "$NAME" etc. Preserving compatibility with 
unfinished package from "experimental" would require quite an effort for 
little gain so naturally I did not do it...
I thought that DPKG prompt to merge conffile should raise enough attention...

Also "debug" mode helps as Etcd logs very clearly which variables are used.

Speaking about logs, I'm a bit concerned that current SysV init script 
discards log entirely... Do you think we should log to "/var/log/etcd.log" 
and drop "debug" mode? I could not figure out how to log to syslog on SysV...

No worries. :) I'm glad that everything is OK. :)

Best wishes,
 Dmitry Smirnov.


I am easily satisfied with the very best.
