Re: [augeas-devel] httpd.conf and beyond

Just wondering: would it make sense to have a lens which could edit
well-formed XML ? Many config files are in XML nowdays, and it would be
convenient to be able to use augeas to manage every config file on the
system, not only the non-xml ones.

Wow, this will be super useful ! I'm looking forward to try it out.

A problem I see is that older Apache versions have other/fewer
directives, Another is that 3rd party modules usually add more
directives to the available ones.

An idea how this could be handled ? Should we expect a "mod_security"
lens which extends httpd.aug, for example ?
