P4DTI issue job000405

TitleConfiguration section in AG needs improvement
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionThe configuration section in the AG (section 5.1) is hard to understand or hard to make use of in places.
In particular:
1. p4_client_executable: no mention of the version mismatch problem (job000377).
2. log_level: example for message.NOTICE can't normally appear.
3. log_file: item 4 in the list is badly phrased.
4. changelist_url: no mention of effect of setting this parameter.
5. Generally: lack of indication of where quotes are required and where not (some users have trouble with the distinction between None and "None").
6. replicate_p: not enough information to write one yourself (see job000403).
AnalysisFix all these problems.

History2001-10-16 GDR Created.
2001-11-22 GDR Note that in many cases there's no worry about confusing None with "None" because the latter will fail some test (e.g., administrator_address = "None" will fail because "None" isn't a valid e-mail address; smtp_server = "None" will fail because a connection can't be made to the SMTP server). replicate_p has been moved to the AAG.
