Hi Phil,

Not a problem with the questions. Augeas has 'lenses', views basically, on
files on the filesystem. Those lenses are the aug files. Essentially they
provide a framework that describes the contents of those files - there are lots
of assume default locations for these files, hence the content warnings (and me
deciding to add ignores for them, blanketly - rather like Puppet in that

You do raise a good point about not looking for sudoers in our standard
location actually - and I think I'll do a patch to remedy that. 

Please, therefore, ignore this release request and I'll sort a patch for at
least sudoers location and do another cut.

Hmm, should all be there. My checkout is committed...

current10x:augeas$ svn info | grep URL
URL: https://gar.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gar/csw/mgar/pkg/augeas
current10x:augeas$ svn st
X       trunk/gar

Performing status on external item at 'trunk/gar'

It was probably the case that the roll that's sitting in experimental hadn't
yet been committed - I tend to svn commit after I've rolled the package and
installed it, testing that it at least installs properly. When I'm confident it
does, it then gets committed.

Hope that helps.
