Default variable details¶
debops.etckeeper default variables have more extensive
configuration than simple strings or lists, here you can find documentation and
examples for them.
etckeeper__*_gitignore variables configure the contents of a section in
/etc/.gitignore file managed by the
debops.etckeeper role. This
file specifies what paths (directories, files) should be ignored by
etckeeper and git. You can check the gitignore(5)
manual page for the allowed syntax.
Each entry in the list defined in the variables is a YAML dictionary with specific parameters:
- Required. Name of a given entry. If the
ignoreparameter is not specified, the
nameparameter is used as-is, otherwise it's not included in the file.
- Optional. A string or YAML text block with a comment that describes a given entry.
- Optional. String or YAML text block that contains the paths which should be
present in the
/etc/.gitignorefile, it will be added in the file as-is.
- Optional. If not specified or
present, a given entry will be included in the generated section. If
absent, and entry will be removed from the generated section.
