kgb-client.conf -- KGB client configuration file

Description

kgb-client(1) can be configured via command line options and/or via a configuration file (via the --conf option). Most of the settings can use either way, with command line options overriding settings from the configuration file.

The file format is YAML. Elaborate example configuration is at the end of this document.

Server connection configuration

repo-id

Unique project identifier on the server. Mandatory.

password

Pass phrase string. Used together with repo-id to authenticate the request to the servers. Per-server configuration overrides this setting.

timeout

Request timeout in seconds. Defaults to 15.

servers

A list of maps, describing the servers to try to send ntifications to. Each server map can have the following members:

uri
The URI of the server. Something like "http://kgb.server.org:port/".
proxy
SOAP proxy to use. Mandatory if using SOAP protocol. Defaults to to the value of the uri setting, with "?session=KGB" appended.
password
Per-server pass phrase. Defaults to the global password setting.
timeout
Timeout of the request. Defaults to the global timeout setting.

status_dir

Directory to store information about the last successfuly contacted server. If the request is soon after the last contact, the last server is tried first. This way related notifications tend to come out of the same server.

Content configuration

branch-and-module-re

A list of regular expressions. These are matched against the path of the modified files and should have two captures in them -- the first capture is for the branch and the second capture is for the module.

This is useful with Subversion repositories where there is a single repository for the project, with all the modules and branches.

module-and-branch-re

Same as branch-and-module-re, but captures are in reverse order -- module first and branch second.

ignore-branch

A name of a branch to ignore. All changes in that branch are sent without branch info. Useful if most of the branches are made in one branch (e.g. trunk, master).

short-url-service

The name of the URL shortening service to use. If given, the service is used to shorten the result of web-link substitution.

See WWW::Shorten for the list of available services. Note that kgb-client comes with an additional service called "Debli", which is primarily useful for clients running on Debian's collaboration server, alioth.

single-line-commits

Send only a single line of the commit message to the channel. Possible values: auto|force|off.

auto
(default) Uses single line notification if the commit log's second line is an empty string. Otherwise uses the whole commit log (as if set to off).
force
Uses only the first line of the commit log, ignoring the rest.
off
Uses the whole commit log, ignoring any empty lines.

use-irc-notices

If set to a true value will make the IRC bot use IRC "notice" messages instead of the ordinary "privmsg" messages.

use-color

If set to a false value will make the IRC bot use no color in the notifications.
