+ You can use different slapt-getrc files. For example:
+
+ slapt-get --config /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc.official --update && \
+ slapt-get --dist-upgrade
+
+ You will have to run --update every time you change your config file. Also,
+ if your excludes and working directory are different in each file, you will
+ want to specify --config with each invocation of slapt-get to ensure that file
+ is parsed.
