INI-style configuration file listing paths to ignore when run with --unowned-files. Paths which should always be ignored may be specified with "IgnoreUnowned" in the "Options" section. Paths which should only be ignored if a particular package is installed can be listed under the section "PkgIgnoreUnowned" using the package name as the option name and the path to be ignored as the value. All options can be specified multiple times. Paths may include shell-style globs. The installation root should not be included in paths.
