files Module for Startingpoint

The files module simplifies the process of copying files to the image during the build time. These files are sourced from the config/files directory, which is located at /tmp/config/files inside the image.

Warning If you want to place anything in /etc of the final image, you MUST place them in /usr/etc in your repo, so that they're written to /usr/etc on the final system. That is the proper directory for "system" configuration templates on OSTree-based Fedora distros, whereas /etc is meant for manual overrides and editing by the machine's admin AFTER installation! See issue

Example Configuration

type: files
  - usr: /usr

In the example above, usr represents the directory located inside the config/files in the repository, while /usr designates the corresponding destination within the image.
