 Not sure what you are trying to achieve? Is this about a new product 
 The array COPY_AS_IS_FDRUPSTREAM=( ) in default.conf is mainly meant to 
 have a basic definition that you can use in different places.
 E.g. in prep script you can initialize or add paths to this array: 

 You should be aware that default.conf is read first and 
 {site,local}.conf as last and do not forget to treat the config files as 
 bash scripts!

 If you explain in abit more detail what you want to achieve we could 
 provide a better answer.
