[rear-users] multiple local.conf files

Hi,

as local.conf is actually a Bash script you can add there some code to
behave differently based on the day of the week. E.g.

case $(date +%u) in ...

Or you can simply include a different file for each day:

Source /etc/rear/dow-$(date +%u).conf

Regards,
Schlomo
