I would like to put /etc under version control (subversion to be
precise). However to do that I must import the existing file tree (ie
/etc/*), remove all the files from /etc then check it out again (so
that it's a proper svn working copy).
Removing the contents of /etc from a working server while it's running
can't be a good idea. It might be possible to do some kind of hackish
work around (like create an empty repository, check that out into
/etc, then svn add all the files, then one big commit), though I'm not
to comfortable doing rough hacks on /etc on a running server.
Can anyone think of a safe and easy way to do this?
