Hi All,

I would like to declare default variable and then overwrite it only if
some class is true for the host.

Current way that I know to implement it is :

!Classname::

        variable = default

Classname::

        variable = variable_value


I believe this will do what you would like:

control:
  all::
    var = ( "some default value" )
    AllowRedefinitionOf  = ( var )

  poopyHost::
    var = ( "some other value" )

  crappyHost::
    var = ( "yet another value" )

  plainHost::
    othervar = ( "I am not a poopy host, so var is still default" )

HTH,
