Summary0001156: SOGo should rely on a configuration file in /etc/
DescriptionThis would provide a more standard "unix way" of configuring a server process. Also, it would enable sogo-tool and the OpenChange backend to make use of the same configuration file. Moreover, it would prevent the buggy code in NSUserDefaults from rewriting plist files in XML.

The case of having multiple instances running in parallel could be simply solved by leaving the user-based configuration take over in those cases.

I'm not sure that this is the correct approach, but I did some basic testing and it seems to work. When /etc/sogo/sogo.conf doesn't exist we fallback to the old code of using the user defaults, but when it does exists we read it and create a volatile sogod domain from it. Because the domain is volatile it isn't written back to the GNUstep Defaults directory. It will also try to read debconf.conf, the idea is that debconf generated configuration items such as the configured database will live in debconf.conf. This should probably be only included on Debian systems, but I added it because I'd feedback whether this is the right approach.

This is now possible in v2.0.2.
