Make /etc a symlink to /var/config/etc. Make /var/config a symlink to config-0. Flip configs by atomically replacing the /var/config symlinks. You'll have to move /etc, or part of it, out of the root filesystem anyway, because you'll want to make your / read-only: so, kill two birds with one stone. > PS As an aside, I've always wanted /etc/hosts to also have a parallel /etc/hosts.d/. > It'd make maintaining things without a DNS server extremely easy - think dynamically > adding and removing VMs in most cloud providers, especially those where multicast DNS > doesn't work... like Azure. Honestly, using djbdns is almost as easy, thanks to the programmatically sane config file formats; and it will scale better. -- Laurent
