kgb.conf -- KGB bot configuration file
kgb.conf is the main configuration file of the KGB bot. Its location is in /etc/kgb-bot/ unless changed with the --conf command line option. See kgb-bot(1).
The file format is YAML. Elaborate example configuration is at the end of this document.
A map with the following possible keys:
IP address to listen to.
Port to listen to.
SOAP service name. Defaults to
Directory to store PID file to. Defautls to /var/run/kgb-bot/.
Path to file with additional configuration. May be a path to a directory, in which case all files in it ending with
".conf" are loaded, in alphabetical order.
Minimum version of the protocol that will be supported by the server. Defaults to
1. Protocol version 0 has no authentication.
When messages are sent to IRC, there is certain rate limitting, which may prevent the message to be sent right away. In this case messages are enqueued, and this parameter configures the size of the queue. When the queue is full client requests are rejected.
A map with keys project names and values maps with project details:
Password used for authenticating all requests from this project.
If true, disables commit announces to 'broadcast' IRC channels.
A map with keys network names and values map of network configuration, containing the following items:
IP address/hostname of the IRC server to connect to.
Port number to connect to.
Bot's nick on the network.
The full name of the bot on the network.
The username presented to the network.
A password for the network.
A password for Nick server identification.
If defined to a true value, the built-in rate-limitting feature of the IRC component will be turned off. WARNING: this may cause the bot to be kicked off the IRC network. Use only when you control both the bot and the IRC network (e.g. when testing).
A list of channels. Each element is a map and represents the channel's configuration:
Channel name, e.g.
Network name, as described in the networks map. Mandatory.
Enables broadcasting all commit notifications to this channel.
A list of project names, as described in the repositories map. Mandatory unless broadcast is enabled.
Each channel can contain separate list of smart answers, see below.
A list of strings to be used as replies when the bot is addressed on IRC.
If set to a true value, polygen(1) will be used to generate replies when the bot is addressed on IRC.
Enables logging of additional diagnostic information.
A list of IRC masks, used to determine if a given IRC nick is bot administrator. Note that currently these nicks have no additional power.
A map of colors to be used when painting commit messages. The following keys are recognized:
Commit ID. Default: none.
Changed path. Default: teal.
Depending on the action performed to the path, additional coloring is made:
Used for added paths. Default: green.
Used for modified paths. Default: teal.
Used for deleted paths. Default: bold red.
Used for replaced paths (a Subversion concept). Default: brown.
