     265== Using a list of conf files (Transifex) ==
     266
     267[http://transifex.org/ Transifex] has adopted a solution using an ordered list of multiple `.conf` files inside a settings directory. This helps separating the config options, packaging in Linux distributions, and putting the settings files under `/etc`.
     268
     269{{{
     270$ ls settings/
     271
     27210-base.conf
     27320-engines.conf
     27430-site.conf
     275...
     276
     277$ cat settings.py
     278
     279import os.path
     280import glob
     281conffiles = glob.glob(os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'settings', '*.conf'))
     282conffiles.sort()
     283for f in conffiles:
     284    execfile(os.path.abspath(f))
     285}}}
     286
     287To apply local-only changes, create a `XX-local.conf file`, which can be ignored with your VCS of choice:
     288
     289{{{
     290$ cat settings/51-local.conf
     291
     292INSTALLED_APPS += ['debug_toolbar']
     293
     294$ cat .hgignore
     295
     296syntax: glob
     297settings/*-local.conf
     298}}}
