         Planned Release: 



Having files that are supposed to be configured *locally* in version control
repository makes development much more difficult. While git is better than svn
in that it does not automatically push my local changes to the master repo
copy of the file, I still must be very careful when doing git reset (need to
restore my correct local configuration after that), or when git pull would
want to replace my local file with one from the master.

Even when you need to have version of the file preconfigured for the image
you're distributing, couldn't that be under different name so that using even
the image would require minimum setup work of running some script that
automatically sets the configuration files as required by the image usage?

I'd want to do some freeciv-web development every now and then, but constantly
hardcoding things not to work on my setup is making that more involved process
than what I have time for. At one point we agreed that freeciv-web changes
would now on be subject to reviews like rest of the freeciv project changes,
but that has not been executed - breakages like this one go in without anybody
allowed to object.
