I need to pass some startup options on to my rails application. Using environment variables will not work because multiple mongrel clusters of my rails application (each of a slightly different flavour) served from a single code base can run concurrently and each cluster instance is activated via mongrel_service.
Extra arguments passed in to either mongrel_rails service::install or mongrel_rails cause errors. The only documentation on the --script option I could find related to unix so I gave up on that thought. I also tried using the --config option, but I had the same problem there: as soon as I added an option to the YAML file that wasn't documented, mongrel complained with an error. The last one is a real nuisance. It just doesn't make sense that my config file should be restricted to content mongrel understands. Wouldn't it be a better approach to parse that file and look/apply the options mongrel recognises and provide a public interface so that other interested clients can access the config file? Or are there other ways to achieve this without resorting to modifying mongrel and mongrel services startup code?
