subvert - Store system configuration files in a source-code control system and link them into place --- Current version available from git://github.com/bryanstearns/subvert.git (I realize the irony here: currently, the only supported source code control system is Subversion; I haven't needed to add Git support, but will add it soon.) --- /subvert is an svn checkout tree that mirrors the file system structure; files and directories are hardlinked/softlinked (respectively) to their positions in the real filesystem. A configuration file, /subvert/subvert.conf, lists groups of files to be installed ("subverted") together. This subvert tool manages that file, performs installs using it, and can report on the status of subverted files. Example: we're managing Apache configuration, including the file /etc/httpd/conf/http.conf and an entire subdirectory /etc/httpd/sites. subvert.conf contains this: [apache] /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf /etc/httpd/sites/ "subvert --apply apache" would rename /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.orig and hardlink our version in its place, then would softlink our /etc/httpd/sites into the /etc/httpd directory. "subvert --check" would report which subverted files have been changed and/or had their hard links broken. "subvert --add new_key /usr/local/bin/foo" would hardlink the existing file /usr/local/bin/foo into /subvert/local/bin/foo and add an entry to subvert.conf for it, within the [new_key] group (creating that group if necessary. It would also "svn add" the new file, but not commit it. "subvert --apply some_key" installs the files & directories associated with the [some_key] group. "subvert --help" explains more.
