Subject: Add a --save option to minicpan command line
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 588b
Often when setting up minicpan, I take the time to work out the right command lines, failing a few times before getting it right. Once it's working, I want those options to be ones I always use. But that means remembering where exactly I need to write the config for, remembering how to convert the command line options into config file entries, and then a few test runs etc. It would be nice to have a --save (or equivalent) option for the minicpan command line which would automatically write a config file for the configuration that was used for the minicpan run (if it succeeeded).

I am very sorry to report that I sat on this bug for so long that your reasonable patches no longer cleanly apply. I spent a little while looking at rebasing them myself, but I don't think that's going to happen right now. If you rebase these, I assure you that I will commit them, possibly with some tweaks, and release promptly. I'm very sorry for the extreme delay! -- rjbs
