I'm happy to add you to the wip committers -- just send me an ssh key.

Then you can commit this yourself and it'll be easier to work with
others on the package.

admin's task to install it, we don't want to autostart services in

Install the config manually into ${PREFIX}/share/examples/motion and then add CONF_FILES entries for the file(s).

"make help topic=CONF_FILES" will give you more details.
