Processing config files as ERB templates

For various reasons it’s very handy for us to process our mongrel
cluster configuration files as ERB templates during start up. I found a
post from a couple of years ago on this mailing list about possibly
adding that feature. But nothing seemed to come of it.

I’d like to submit a request for this feature to be added, but I can’t
figure out how to go about it. Is this list the right place? Do I open a
Trac ticket? Submit a patch to someone?

Any guidance on this would be appreciated.

You can use the -S option and instead of using erb, you can write a
ruby script. Or if you have files you really need to use erb on you
can execute the erb in your -S script. I think this would solve your
problem… if I understand correctly…
