I've done this before and it is pretty painless, only a small number of
files. I think this is it (on my system at least):
- /etc/hostname, /etc/hosts, /etc/mailname,
- probably some of your mail config files (I use smail, so
- others, depending upon your installation: apache, etc.
My approach would be to use a recursive grep on /etc to find these. I
think there is a recursive grep in the 'git' package, I think the
application is 'gitrgrep'.
Hope this helps...
