[feature request] inotify the configuration file

Post by mobidyc » June 23rd, 2014, 7:16 pm

Hello,

It could be nice to not restart MPD after a configuration change.
I also noted than a SIGHUP does not reload the configuration but only recycle the logs.

Maybe MPD could use inotify on the file configuration and re-read It when there is a change ?

Hello,

I posted this feature request in the bugtracker

sorry for the noise ;=)
