Ask Jeff how this was used:
This one we do use a lot, to propagate changes from one factory config file to another. Here's a basic example: $GLIDEIN_SRC_DIR/creation/clone_glidein -other glideinWMS.xml.ucsd -out glideinWMS.xml.test -merge only -exclude name CMS_T2_US_Nebraska -exclude name CMS_T2_US_UCSD glideinWMS.xml The config in -other is the one you want to pull updates from. -out specifies the name of the newly generated config. In this example we are telling the clone tool to ignore a few entries with the -exclude option. finally the last config file listed here is the original you want to base it on. -merge only here means, only propagate changes into glideinWMS.xml.test and don't add new entries. Other possible options for -merge: yes - modify existing entries in addition to adding new ones no - only add new entries There are a few options we use less often but if you want to know how they work I may remember.
