Re: administering directory exclusions for beagle

Unfortunately it looks like its 0.2.x and that's SLED10-SP2.

Any idea why the files from /etc/skel are over written or deleted?

What version of beagle exists in SLED10 ?

If its 0.3.x, then take a look at the global config files 
at /etc/beagle/config-files. Look specially for Daemon.xml and 
FilesQueryable.xml. FilesQueryable.xml contains the default excluded 
directories and they allow environment variables (e.g. you can specify 
$HOME/mapped_dir). You might also want to add "Files" (and other relevant 
backends) to Daemon.xml:DeniedBackends so that by default these backends are 
turned off.

If it is 0.2.x or earlier, then the /etc/skel approach is the only way that 
comes to my mind. Although, I cant quite say off the top of my head what is 
going wrong.
