Off the top of my head. postconf will give you the current config adding
a -c <dir> will change the directory it looks. How about
postconf > config1
# changes made
postconf > newconfig
diff config1 newconfig
possibly detecting the changes through a cron job be better then feeding
the output of postconf in a revision control system would be better.
If you find a better way of doing this please post as I face similar
see also thread on this mailing list with the subject "version control
for config files"
