Sorry - are your files taken from the templates and slightly modified,
or are they config files that simply happen to have similar sections to
the defaults / documentation examples?

We went through all these things with a fine-toothed comb for Apache
CloudStack - possibly with even more caution than absolutely necessary -
and we did wind up contacting several upstream maintainers to get a
sign-off on their config files not being licensed under LGPL/GPL, etc.
