Perl HASH config items need to preserve a maintainable format. For now things like {FormTypes} are nice in Foswiki.spec but uglified once it made its way to LSC. Every call to configure -save will revert formatting of perl HASHes. There are too many extensions in need of these kind of config items.

This was fixed at one point. Regression.

Michael, I'm checking in a two-line patch which adds formatting to the configuration, but it doesn't preserve the original formatting. So manually crafted settings will be re-formatted, but they won't be wrapped back together onto a single line. Please check if this is sufficient or if more work is needed.

And one other unrelated question... In debugging this I used {FormTypes}. The documentation on that field says it will automatically be changed if new form types are added. I can't find any code where that's done. Is that still true and I missed the code, or is the documentation wrong?
This setting is automatically updated by configure to list all the installed FormField types. If you install an extension that adds new Form Field types, you need to run configure for them to be registered.',
