If you run 'rear dump' you will see the sequence of reading, default.conf
is the first one but is not listed (local.conf is the last

Configuration tree: 
 Linux-i386.conf : OK 
 GNU/Linux.conf : OK 

Fedora.conf : missing/empty 
 Fedora/i386.conf : missing/empty 

Fedora/18.conf : missing/empty 
 Fedora/18/i386.conf : missing/empty 

site.conf : missing/empty 
 local.conf : OK 

I would only define variables
in local.conf if you want it to be different then the default values as
defined in default.conf

Hi again

 If that is indeed the case (i'm about to do
a 1.14 run tranposing defs
from default,conf to local.conf and defining
them there), then could
default.conf variables be exposed _in_ local.conf
in a future release? Not
knowing of their existence complicates configuring
rear. While i'm asking
things, do vars in local.conf take precedence over
the same vars in

 many thanks

In 1.14, can EXCLUDE_MOUNTPOINTS be defined in local.conf? In
1.12 i found
that i needed to modify /usr/share/rear/conf/default.conf. I
always found
this to be a difficult/non-intuitive place to be setting

All configuration values in default.conf can be
set in local.conf.
Even in 1.12, so I think it's really strange that that
was what you
observed :-)
