Subject Re: Plan Dotfile in Configuration
Date Wed, 01 Jul 2015 22:05:03 GMT
Hi Bryan, Josh,

IIRC this comes from the original dotfile jobplan implementation. I kept it
for backward compatible. You can see that only the "jobplan" (e.g. the
original/main plan) is stored in the Configuration.

+Gabriel i am not sure I remember the original intent to have the jobplan
stored in the Configuration?
