Hum, you can use the config file from the 2.2.0 release till the
2.2.5 release and, if you can't with the 2.2.6 release, it's only
because of the "$cfgPmaabsoluteUri" directive that must be set
Then we may only ensure compatibily with the config file from
the 2.2.6 release now.

That's already in the documentation ;)

I wonder what we will do if we add some directive in the next
releases? Won't we have to restore some pices of code to ensure
compatibility? In this case the file Alexander added to the CVS
is not so bad IMHO.

I agree!
