      Auto migrate user custom json system to config.py based system · f03e1dba
      Sriram Karra authored
      The existing config.json system is not very amenable to changes.
      We realzed this when the carddav branch made some changes an
      introduced v5 of the json. PUshing out major updates like this
      can be intrusive to those users who have made customizations to
      their copy of the config.json file. To address this issue, The
      modified protocol will be as follows:
      
      - Teh system will load the stock version of the latest config json
      - the parsed config dictionary will be passed to the user in
        user_dir/config.py which can be any python code. It is expected
        that the user modifies the config idctionary and sends it back
      
      This way we can keep pushing updates to teh config json while
      seamlessly retaining the user customizations.
      
      In this patch, the auto migrate will work if the user has not
      made any changes to his json. If we identify any changes then
      The auto migrate will stop and user will be asked to manually
      migrate his changes.
