Whonix project metadata could be distributed using Tahoe-LAFS - a redundant, encrypted storage array accessible over Tor. Instructions to users about alternative download mechanisms of the project's code and documentation can be passed thru this channel.

json is not trivially parsed in shell scripts. For shell scripts, something that can be simply evaluated would be nice. (Just echo listen_ip=xxx, so listen_ip=xxx gets set.)

Hmm, maybe I was not very clear on the explanation. I did not suggest changing the configs format (the .conf files). They should still look like something evaluable.

I did not interpret your suggestion as a change in the conf files.

What I suggested was the use of json to return the *parsed* configs to applications.

Yes, got that. That's why I wanted to point out, that json is hard to parse in shell scripts.

As a Python user (and as this would be a Python package) I would expect to get a dict with the configs to use on my application. For non-Python applications, that dict would be serialized to json because I believe that is one of the most popular formats these days with support from many languages. Also, we can offer multiple "serializers" if needed.

Yes, something that works for shell scripts would be nice.

Was that your concern?

Yes.

On the other hand... I personally prefer the very at the end and to have some consistency, i.e. config_read, config_check and so forth.

This class is reasonably flexible so that people are able to customize how files are found and parsed. I pretty much just wrote the API, but here is what I have in mind:

I think [zzz] is a bonus. No need to wait for it or to let it block our progress here. We got some great suggestions for our initial draft which we then implemented. I think in this case it's fair to interpret the absence of criticism and praise as an okay signal to move forward. This is probably also how things work. Some people create some convention, then just do it. If it then proves to be useful and working, it might become an official Debian standard. Neither Debian nor freedesktop want to be the gatekeepers of innovation.

I'd suggest to add the link to the ticket and repo rather as a bonus. To be added somewhere at the end. We are mainly addressing the people on the mailing list. Beginning the text with two external links, I mean with...

Good idea!

Btw, can I use numbers to index the references instead of `x`, `xx`, etc?

Neither /etc/server-config.d nor /etc/server look like ideal choices
for folder names to me. I was hoping for better suggestions. =)

/etc/server/main.config is not so pretty. A folder with a single
config file. Why a folder then.

(I also had in mind /etc/listen/main.conf as well as
/etc/listen/conf.d/*.conf. That would be similar to /etc/dpkg. But
/etc/listen/conf.d/ would be less consistent with /usr/lib/listen.d/.)

What about as name, listen? Is this specific enough only on the topic
of listen or will it likely expand to also covering "server"?

Let's go with the following?

  • /etc/listen.conf
  • /etc/listen.d/*.conf
  • /usr/local/etc/listen.d/*.conf
  • /usr/lib/listen.d/*.conf
