?configFile are the ones that are generated when you ask for client configs if you want to
configure a client on a host that is not managed by Ambari.

Subject: What's the meaning of <config-type> and <configFile> in metainfo.xml

I am not sure exactly what' these two elements mean. It seems <configFile> is used for
defining the configuration file while <config-type> is used for refer to this configuration
as dependency. Correct me if I am wrong. Then what's the usage of the dependency ? I found
the configuration file will be generated by python code, I guess all the file under configuration
folder are dependencies. Or Does that mean I have to declare the dependencies explicitly ?

Best Regards
