Re: [augeas-devel] Less-stuffed interfaces lens

I've finally committed and pushed this - sorry for the delay; part of it
was that I actually wanted to sit down and understand Debian network
config in more detail; that never happened. But from what I gather from
the man page, the changes make perfect sense to me.

Just to help my understanding: this means that ifup -a should bring up
the interfaces 'lo', 'eth0', and '#foo', right ?

I completely agree - the two problems we've had with that so far are (a)
lack of expertise (e.g., calling me a Debian n00b is charitable) and (b)
lack of people willing to do reviews.

If I had known/understood the breakage, I would have probably fixed it
myself ;)

I agree though that a facility to indicate the stability and/or version
of a lens would be useful.
