+ <longdescription lang="en">
+A library for programmatically editing configuration files. Augeas parses
+configuration files into a tree structure, which it exposes through its
+public API. Changes made through the API are written back to the initially
+read files.
+
+The transformation works very hard to preserve comments and formatting
+details. It is controlled by ``lens'' definitions that describe the file
+format and the transformation into a tree.
