Re: "include" files

This does not scale as well as you might think.  You might also
want to copy, link then copy again.  We have arranged our config
files by function instead:

cfagent.conf:
 import:
   any::
     cf.globalclasses
     cf.globalvariables
     cf.main

in cf.globalclasses and cf.globalvariables we define classes and
variables that may be used by any 'agent'
cf.main imports the individual self-contained 'agents'

cf.main:
 import:
   any::
     cf.nis
     cf.hosts
     cf.auto
     cf.dns
     cf.ntp
     cf.inetd
     cf.passwd
     ...

here is a simple example of an agent:

cf.ntp:
 control:
  actionsequence = ( 
                     copy._ntp
                     shellcommands._ntp
                    )
 groups:
  _ntp_server    = ( somemachinename )
   
 copy:
  _ntp._ntp_server::
    ${gold}/etc/ntp.conf.default   dest=/etc/ntp.conf define=_ntp_bounce
  _ntp.!_ntp_server::
    ${gold}/etc/ntp.conf.ntpserver dest=/etc/ntp.conf define=_ntp_bounce

 shellcommands:
  _ntp._ntp_bounce::
    "/etc/init.d/xntpd restart"


The actionsequence class '_ntp' is what makes the whole thing work.
See 'actionsequence classes' in the Tutorial
