    I wish there was a way to see what the default values in a config file are for a given distro.
    I’m guessing there probably is, and I just don’t know it.

    Maybe I should just make / a git repo…

      Without knowing a better way, my go-to solution woukd just be getting an full installation image and diffing my files with the files on it

      Don’t modify the config in /etc/, copy them in ~/.config/ and then modify them. You’ll always be able to just look at the /etc/ for defaults.

      You should check out the Fedora atomic distros if you haven’t already. Making the system work more like a git repo is what they are doing with rpm-ostree. I am liking it a lot.

      Usually if its a boolean or nullable, a good config file will have a # uncommemt this line to enable this feature/disable this feature/bind to this IP address/give this thing a name that is at least vaugely hints what the option does. But yes, its still fairly annoying.
