Yes, I think I agree with you.
So I'm thinking we actually want something like:
/etc/pm/config # the default config file
/etc/pm/config.d/ # empty by default
/etc/pm/sleep.d/ # empty by default
/etc/pm/power.d/ # empty by default
/usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/ # default power scripts are here
/usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/ # default s/r/h/t scripts are here, used to be "hooks"
/usr/sbin/pm-suspend # symlink to pm-action above
/usr/sbin/pm-hibernate # symlink to pm-action above
/usr/bin/on_ac_power # some stuff out of pm-utils calls it...
And then for e.g. sleep.d, we take all the filenames in the two
directories (/etc/pm/sleep.d and /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d) and sort
them, then we iterate. If the file exists in /etc/pm/sleep.d, we run
that one (_if_ it's executable). If it doesn't exist there, we run it
from /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d instead.
This lets the stuff in /etc/pm, except for /etc/pm/config itself, be
totally user configuration, and lets a local admin override what
anything in the defaults will do, without changing any file the distro
Have I missed anything terribly obvious?
