Example scenario:

  1. I create a site using commerce_kickstart 7x-2.0.
  2. I modify some of the "Features"(ex. commerce_kickstart_user, commerce_kickstart_taxonomy) that are prepackaged with the distribution.


  1. Will these "Features" be overwritten when an update comes, ex. commerce_kickstart 7x-2.1 (Not really sure if there is such as a thing as a distro update. Tried to google, went to issue queues, IRCs to no avail)
  2. If the answer to #1 is yes,how do you maintain your configurations to the "features" when an update comes? Should they be renamed and moved to "/sites/all/modules/my_features"?
  • What do you mean by Features? Has it something to do with the features module?

  • A "feature" is a mini-module that can be obtained by using the "features" module. What I'm referring in the title are the mini-modules/features. May 10, 2013 at 6:35

Yes, they will be marked as overriden. The Features Override was designed for this use case, so try it and report back.
