etckeeper 1.18.5 released with these changes

  • Make etckeeper commit store metadata changes. The pre-commit hook has always (and continues) to do that, but pre-commit is only run when there are changes to tommit. This makes metadata-only changes get committed.
  • Move systemd files to /lib/systemd; /usr/lib/systemd is not used on Debian.

etckeeper 1.18.4 released with these changes

  • Optimised find for special and hard linked files. Thanks, Rike-Benjamin Schuppner.
  • Adjust when Pacman 5 calls etckeeper hooks. Thanks, Tilman Blumenbach and Christian Hesse.
  • Only run Pacman hooks when files in /etc have changed. Thanks, Christian Hesse.
  • Added systemd timer that can run etckeeper 10 minutes after boot, and also daily. It's not enabled by default, partly because of overlap with the cron job. Thanks, Christian Hesse.
