hello everybody

Thank you for the excellent job you're all doing with vservers !

I am using Vservers daily ;-) but I create new ones once every three
months only. So I'm perpetually a newby there.
I can confirm that new style config is just beginner's nightmare. Time
to understand the great flower page is ten times what's needed to
create a vserver.
Wouldn't it be great if someone who knows proposes a script to
translate an old-style file to a new-style tree ? may be it already
exists ?
And sorry to be so stupid : how do you adapt the GFP css ? So far I
have to use lynx to read it ;-)

I'm dealing with failover intensively too. In any case of failover
(automated or manual) I have to check that configuration is exactly
replicated and up-to-date on all nodes (usually four or five nodes),
else I disable failover. So I used to check versionning information
hard-coded in comments of all configuration files that matter, in
particular vserver config. I'm quite puzzled to do so with the new
style config.

Hope this helps
