    I like it.. from reading the parse.y I figure that COMMAND can only be one per line in doas.conf? Maybe english police can polish in doas.1.
    Would be hell to have more than one, since ',' as ' ' can be valid filenames :P

      The config format is not considered final yet.

      Wouldn't the english police english in doas.1?

    It's a good sign when a program is explained in a manpage that doesn't require using the page-up and page-down keys.

    Good work, OpenBSD devs!

    Will there be a "vidoas" like "visudo"?

      More important for me: Will there be a 'doasedit'?
      (or is it 'editas'?)
