# @ECLASS: savedconfig.eclass
# @BLURB: common API for saving/restoring complex configuration files
# It is not uncommon to come across a package which has a very fine
# grained level of configuration options that go way beyond what
# USE flags can properly describe. For this purpose, a common API
# of saving and restoring the configuration files was developed
# so users can modify these config files and the ebuild will take it
# into account as needed.
inherit portability
# @FUNCTION: save_config
# @USAGE: <config files to save>
# Use this function to save the package's configuration file into the
# right location. You may specify any number of configuration files,
# but just make sure you call save_config with all of them at the same
# time in order for things to work properly.

# @FUNCTION: restore_config
# @USAGE: <config files to restore>
# Restores the configuation saved ebuild previously potentially with user edits.
# You can restore a single file or a whole bunch, just make sure you call
# restore_config with all of the files to restore at the same time.
# Config files can be laid out as:
# ${PORTAGE_CONFIGROOT}/etc/portage/savedconfig/${CTARGET}/${CATEGORY}/${PF}
# ${PORTAGE_CONFIGROOT}/etc/portage/savedconfig/${CHOST}/${CATEGORY}/${PF}
# ${PORTAGE_CONFIGROOT}/etc/portage/savedconfig/${CATEGORY}/${PF}
