This is not inteneded as a flame so please bear with me, but why are config files in Ubuntu either poorly commented or not commented at all? I'm a Redhat administrator and have gotten used to their long, complete and well commented config files.
For example: I can go into /etc/postfix/main.cf on a Redhat box and see a complete config file with all the variables and supporting comments to go with it. Why does Ubuntu not do this?
Now, I can appreciate the fact that by Ubuntu not commenting these config files, they are lean and easy to view and find information but sometimes you forget what a variable is and what it does and having a nice fully commented config file comes in handy.
Does anyone know why config files in Ubuntu are so sparse? I presume this is by design but personally I really don't like it.
