User configuration file for fedora-create-review

The configuration file is an ini file of this form:

    bugzilla_api_key = ..
    bugzilla_username = ..
    upload_target = ..

"bugzilla_api_key" and "bugzilla_username" are the API key to a bugzilla instance, and a username respectively. They are both optional. If the "bugzilla_username" is not set, fedora-create-review will ask for it interactively.

"upload_target" takes a URL where the spec and SRPM file will be uploaded to using the "scp" command. So you must have write access to this location.

A common URL here for Fedora package maintainers would be of the form "fedorapeople.org:public_html/".

Two place holders may be used in the URL which are substituted by fedora-create-review:
   - "@username@" is a place holder for the value provided by the --username flag
   - "@pkgname@" is place holder which is substituted by the name of the package.

     For example, this will create a new directory for each package on your Fedora people space:
     upload_target = fedorapeople.org:public_html/@pkgname@/
