In what directory does etckeeper store its metadata and permissions in?

I want to know for purposes of testing the restoration of a configuration.


It stores its metadata in the /etc/.etckeeper file, which is also tracked in the repository used to store /etc.

  • Does that file get stored in the etckeeper repository under git...wait I guess it would because it's in /etc right? – leeand00 Dec 18 '15 at 14:05
