Re: Trigger Rally updated in Debian?
do I read that response correctly that a configuration file template
should be stored in /usr/bin? That's a no-go and I hope we'll be able
to apply a patch for that within Debian at least. If Andrei feels
insulted by questions then I'm worried if we are allowed to be puzzled
by an approach of storing configuration files within an executable
search path ...
Hope that gets us further though,
