Hi Heinz,

Please confirm that it is OK for me to setup etckeeper + git on
Japsand to revision control /etc/.

Some quick tips on usage for everyone:
1. To basically "git add" and "git commit" everything after making a
change, run "sudo etckeeper commit". You will be prompted for a
changelog message.
2. if you do not run "sudo etckeeper commit" manually, it will be run
automatically every night (/etc/cron.daily/etckeeper).
3. To view changes/history, run standard git commands with sudo under /etc/ .

Generally more than OK from my side (as mentioned, I find the "plain"
Debian way of (not) managing config files horrible), but please check
back with Heinz, as it's his machine after all and he probably wants to
be kept "in the loop" and approve of such drastic changes.
