Re: [HTCondor-users] Do you NEED to share condor_config across multiple versions of HTCondor?

The above three options are probably feasible for most customers.  The two points I'd like to make are:

1) we can't *guarantee* there isn't some user out there whose situation somehow precludes those options.

2) Nobody has yet explained either what Feature X is, or what proposed [funky-syntax] would look like. Is there a way to provide Feature-X with existing syntax that is 80% as good?

On a related note, is there a ticket and/or design document associated with Feature-X?
