Description Patrick Ohly 2012-07-29 18:36:00 UTC

---- Reported by patrick.ohly@intel.com 2010-09-06 12:28:19 +0000 ----

"--configure --source-property evolutionsource/type/...=bar scheduleworld addresssbook"

somewhat unexpectedly modifies the property for *all* peers in the @default context.

There were several suggestions for avoiding this pitfall. Reject such changes unless
a) a -f/--force option is given, or
b) there is only one peer in the context or
c) the <config> names a context

b) is useful for casual users with only one peer. But they don't learn about the concept of SyncEvolution.

Therefore the proposal in this issue is to add immediate feedback about the changes made to a configuration, for example like this (suggested by Matthijs Kooijman):

    Operating on context "default"
    Setting property "evolutionsource" to "foo" for source "addressbook"
    Setting property "sync" to "two-way" for source "addressbook" and peer "scheduleworld"
    Setting property "syncURL" to "http://foo" for peer "scheduleworld"
