Would this be backwards incompatible? i.e. if overwrite_warning doesn't exist in the _config. Would this be better?

if getattr(, 'overwrite_warning', False) and os.path.exists(path):
     # ...

Unless I've missed somewhere that sets default values for missing configs?

Ryan McGuire

Yep, thanks!

Ryan McGuire

Actually I take that back, it will be compatible. the configuration is distributed with Blogofile and this change is in the writer, which is part of Blogofile.
