It would fit well with a German stereotype. ;-)

Okay, so keeping it regular and subintuitive, we'd have:

PROTOTYPE_FILES_mytweaks = $(bindir)/.*\.conf
PROTOTYPE_PERMS_mytweaks = 0644
PROTOTYPE_CLASS_mytweaks = cswconffile
PROTOTYPE_USER_mytweaks = somebody
PROTOTYPE_GROUP_mytweaks = somegroup

I'm fine with the above.

By the way, I'm having this problem:

A line in the Makefile
SAMPLECONF = $(sysconfdir)/cups/cupsd\.conf\.CSW

The problem: The file in the prototype doesn't have the correct class:
$ ggrep conf\\.CSW work/build-global/*prototype
work/build-global/CSWcupsd.prototype:f none
/etc/opt/csw/cups/cupsd.conf.CSW 0644 root bin
work/build-global/prototype:f none /etc/opt/csw/cups/cupsd.conf.CSW
0644 root bin

How to debug it?
