Hello,

i'm using many different backup profiles and it would be nice to set global options, like a global conf for things like KEY, ... and then only small conf-files with different SOURCE/TARGET.

Thanks

    conf files are shell scripts really.

    so you can include a global.conf with
    . ${CONFDIR}/../globals.conf
    e.g. if the file is located in the profiles folder (~/.duply or /etc/duply)

    currently the GPG_PW must be located in the <profile>/conf file. but i might reverse that, not sure now.

    does that help? ..ede

    the GPG_PW restriction was waived. please use the suggested solution below to achieve global configuration.

    Hi Edso,

    That is helpful for those who happen to come across this feature request, but it seems to me that the more logical solution would be to have a "conf" created in the ~/.duply folder by default (with everything commented out) that is automatically included. This could then say at the top of the file that anything entered in that file would provide a default that would apply unless it is specifically overridden by a specific profile's conf file.
