ibid.ini - Configuration file for Ibid
ibid.ini contains all the configuration for an Ibid bot.
A complete description of the contents of this file is out of the scope
of this manpage. For more details see the Ibid documentation:

use a # symbol in an option (e.g. an IRC channel name), quote the
option with double-quotes, e.g. channels="#ibid",
This file will be written to by the bot when configuration settings are
altered online. It can also be edited manually and a running bot told

the bot modifies its own configuration, provided that they have not
been edited since bot start-up or the last config reload.

Sources can be disabled by setting disabled=True.
