     pkg_install.conf -- configuration file for package installation tools

     The file pkg_install.conf contains system defaults for the package installation tools as a
     list of variable-value pairs.  Each line has the format VARIABLE=VALUE.  If the value con-
     sists of more than one line, each line is prefixed with VARIABLE=.

     The current value of a variable can be checked by running
	   pkg_admin config-var VARIABLE

     Some variables are overriden by environmental variables of the same name.	Those are marked
     by (*).

     The following variables are supported:

	     Space-separated list of licenses packages are allowed to carry.  License names are

	     Force the use of active FTP.

	     Cache directory listenings in memory.  This avoids retransfers of the large direc-
	     tory index for HTTP and is enabled by default.

	     Path to the file containing the certificates used for validating binary packages.	A
	     package is trusted when a certificate chain ends in one of the certificates con-
	     tained in this file.  The certificates must be PEM-encoded.

	     Analogous to CERTIFICATE_ANCHOR_PKGS.  The pkg-vulnerabilities is trusted when a
	     certificate chain ends in one of the certificates contained in this file.

	     Path to a file containing additional certificates that can be used for completing
	     certificate chains when validating binary packages or pkg-vulnerabilities files.

	     Check the license conditions of packages before installing them.  Supported values

	     no 	    The check is not performed.

	     yes	    The check is performed if the package has license conditions set.

	     always	    Passing the license check is required.  Missing license conditions
			    are considered an error.

	     During vulnerability checks, consider packages that have reached end-of-life as vul-
	     nerable.  This option is enabled by default.

	     Check for vulnerabilities when installing packages.  Supported values are:

	     never	    No check is performed.

	     always	    Passing the vulnerability check is required.  A missing pkg-vulnera-
			    bilities file is considered an error.

	     interactive    The user is always asked to confirm installation of vulnerable pack-

	     Limit the global connection cache to this value.  For FTP this is the number of ses-
	     sions without active command.  For HTTP this is the number of connections open with

	     Like CONFIG_CACHE_CONNECTIONS, but limit the number of connections to the host as
	     well.  See fetch(3) for further details

	     Space-separated list of common Free and Open Source licenses packages are allowed to
	     carry.  The default value contains all OSI approved licenses in pkgsrc on the date
	     pkg_install was released.	License names are case-sensitive.

     GPG     Path to gpg(1), which can be used to verify the signature in the pkg-vulnerabilities
	     file when running
		   pkg_admin check-pkg-vulnerabilities -s
		   pkg_admin fetch-pkg-vulnerabilities -s
	     It can also be used to verify and sign binary packages.

	     Non-default keyring to use for verifying GPG signatures of pkg-vulnerabilities.

	     Non-default keyring to use for signing packages with GPG.

	     Non-default keyring to use for verifying GPG signature of packages.

	     User-id to use for signing packages.

	     Use direct connections and ignore FTP_PROXY and HTTP_PROXY.

	     One line per advisory which should be ignored when running
		   pkg_admin audit
	     The URL from the pkg-vulnerabilities file should be used as value.

     PKG_DBDIR (*)
	     Location of the packages database.  This option is always overriden by the argument
	     of the -K option.

     PKG_PATH (*)
	     Search path for packages.	The entries are separated by semicolon.  Each entry spec-
	     ifies a directory or URL to search for packages.

	     Location of the package reference counts database directory.  The default value is

	     Directory name in which the pkg-vulnerabilities file resides.  Default is

	     URL which is used for updating the local pkg-vulnerabilities file when running
		   pkg_admin fetch-pkg-vulnerabilities
	     The default location is ftp.NetBSD.org using HTTP.  Note: Usually, only the compres-
	     sion type should be changed.  Currently supported are uncompressed files and files
	     compressed by bzip2(1) (.bz2) or gzip(1) (.gz).

	     Log details of network IO to stderr.

	     Set trust level used when installation.  Supported values are:

	     never	    No signature checks are performed.

	     always	    A valid signature is required.  If the binary package can not be ver-
			    ified, the installation is terminated

	     trusted	    A valid signature is required.  If the binary package can not be ver-
			    ified, the user is asked interactively.

	     interactive    The user is always asked interactively when installing a package.

     /etc/pkg_install.conf  Default location for the file described in this manual page.
