I keep have a separate "user" path for our custom CFG and KAR files.

For example, as part of our distribution, I include a
org.apache.felix.fileinstall-userdeploy.cfg file to monitor a separate
directory that only includes deploys outside of the Karaf distribution

For changes made to other files, take for example
org.apache.karaf.command.acl.camel.cfg, I keep a custom copy of it in
src\main\resources\etc (as well as filtered resources) so it replaces what
the default distribution would include. This works fine although if there
are changes to these files between releases, it can be challenging to

I also set "karaf.clean.cache = true" in system.properties to ensure all
proper versions and features are installed at startup. This may be a little
burdensome to others, but it works for us.

There's a little more sophistication to it than just this with the actual
deployment of the distribution, but that is the basics of it.
