NAME

etc-update - handle configuration file updates  

SYNOPSIS

etc-update [options] [--automode <mode>] [paths to scan]  

DESCRIPTION

etc-update is supposed to be run after merging a new package to see if there are updates to the configuration files. If a new configuration file will override an old one, etc-update will prompt the user for a decision.

etc-update will check all directories specified on the command line. If no paths are given, then the CONFIG_PROTECT variable will be used. All config files found in CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK will automatically be updated for you by etc-update. See make.conf(5) for more information.

etc-update respects the normal PORTAGE_CONFIGROOT and EROOT variables for finding the aforementioned config protect variables.
