@astrugatch Looks like there would be an edge case if you answered ‘no’ to php/apache reinstall during update where it would just carry on with the ‘packages’ line from .fogsettings and thus cause no problems.
@sudburr Just so you’re aware - we are still working on the 1.5.x version of FOG. Long term aim is to finish that, merge all the things into the 1.6 branch (Tom does this every now and then with all the fixes we add in 1.5.x) but we’ll most certainly release one or two more 1.5.x versions before we call it “finished”.
Are you asking about persistent groups? In that you create a group with specific settings and then when you register a new host you make it a member of that group and all of the settings from that group are applied to the newly registered host?
