Swift searches for files in multiple locations:

1. The etc/ file included with the Swift distribution.

2. $SWIFT_SITE_CONF/ - used for defining site templates.

3. $HOME/.swift/

4. in your current directory.

5. Any property file you point to with the command line argument "-properties "

Settings get read in this order. Definitions in the later files will override any previous definitions. For example, if you have execution.retries=10 in $HOME/.swift/, and execution.retries=0 in the in your current directory, execution.retries will be set to 0.

To verify what files are being read, and what values will be set, run:

$ swift -listconfig
