  • What does Bcfg2 stand for?
    Initially, Bcfg stood for the bundle configuration system. Bcfg2 is the second major revision. At this point, the acronym is meaningless, but the name has stuck. Luckily, Bcfg2 googles better than Bcfg does. No, seriously. Try it. All I know is that I have no interest in a billion cubic feet of gas.
