CCP is a program that reads configuration files and upgrades them.

It takes a oldfile (typically the old configuration file currently in use)
and a newfile (typically the default new configuration file) and optionally
a template (a file which tells ccp how the generated configuration file should
look like. It is generated on-the-fly if a template isn't supplied, so it is
usually not needed). CCP first reads all the configuration options and values in
the new file, then in the old file, then it either generates the template or reads
the supplied template file, finally it merges the files into one - creating a new
configuration file that has the changes that was made to the old file but also
the new options that is included in the new file.

CCP is completely independant of the program that created the configuration file,
and can be used for many different purposes. For instance it can be used to merge
changes between an old user-edited configuration file and a .rpmnew file generated
by rpm when a rpm was upgraded.
