does asterisk provide any sets of virgin config files without comments in them?
Negative, though it’s one of the things that a few of us have considered. How useful do you think such a thing would be? Should it be pre-configured for any particular application in that case?
it would greatly reduce confusion when looking at the file, it’s hard enough ploughing through the settings as it is without loads of clutter, and what would also be good is an option in asterisk-gui to generate config files without comments if the user so chooses.
