I second this. The Debian-way to process config-directories is
implemented in run-parts. Usually people depend on this way if
they disable some specific files in these directories (they mv them to
file.disabled or file~ or something like that). This way also respects
editors saving backups of modified files. The Debian package manager
also depends on this way when it stores .dpkg-something files there.
I myself, for example, always keep the original version of a changed
conffile as file.orig in the same place.
So using find instead of run-parts worsens a lot of things at the
dubious benefit of accepting filenames with periods.
just my 2 cents, Thanks for your work & regards
Independence Day: Fortunately, the alien computer operating system works just
fine with the laptop. This proves an important point which Apple enthusiasts
have known for years. While the evil empire of Microsoft may dominate the
computers of Earth people, more advanced life forms clearly prefer Mac's.
