I'd like to suggest allowing the use of the "includefile" option, which currently works within the amanda.conf file to allow the inclusion of external .conf files in the main configuration, within the disklist file itself.

Instead of a large, monolithic disklist file filled with partitions, this style of nesting would allow administrators to have separate files for each client's partitions. This would make editing a specific client's partitions easier, without the need to edit (and possibly cause problems with) the monolithic disklist file.

Thanks for your consideration!

I was thinking the exact same thing myself. It would make it easier to manage i think...

We will consider adding this in future release.
