-@chapter Configuration in Taler
-In Taler realm, any component obeys to the same pattern to get configuration
-values. According to this pattern, once the component has been installed, the
-installation deploys default values in @code{$@{prefix@}/share/taler/config.d/}, in
-@emph{.conf} files. In order to override these defaults, the user can write a custom
-@emph{.conf} file and either pass it to the component at execution time, or name it
-@code{taler.conf} and place it under @code{$HOME/.config/}.
-A config file is a text file containing `sections`, and each section contains
-its `values`. The right format follows::
-value1 = string
-value2 = 23
-value21 = string
-value22 = /path22
-@end smallexample
-Throughout any configuration file, it is possible to use @emph{$}-prefixed variables,
-like @code{$VAR}, especially when they represent filesystem paths.
-It is also possible to provide defaults values for those variables that are unset,
-by using the following syntax: @code{$@{VAR:-default@}}.
-However, there are two ways a user can set @emph{$}-prefixable variables:
-by defining them under a @code{[paths]} section, see example below,
-@end smallexample
-or by setting them in the environment
-$ export VAR=/x
-@end smallexample
-The configuration loader will give precedence to variables set under @code{[path]},
-The utility @code{taler-config}, which gets installed along with the exchange,
-serves to get and set configuration values without directly editing the @emph{.conf}.
-The option @code{-f} is particularly useful to resolve pathnames, when they use
-several levels of @emph{$}-expanded variables. See @code{taler-config --help}.
-Note that, in this stage of development, the file @code{$HOME/.config/taler.conf}
-can contain sections for @emph{all} the component. For example, both an exchange and
-a bank can read values from it.
-The repository @emph{git://} contains examples of configuration
-file used in our demos. See under @code{deployment/config}.
-Expectably, some components will not work just by using default values, as their
-work is often interdependent. For example, a merchant needs to know an exchange
-URL, or a database name.
