+Configuration
+*************
+
+``bzr`` can be configure via environment variables, command-line options
+and configurations files. We've started working on unifying this and give
+access to more options. The first step is a new ``bzr config`` command that
+can be used to display the active configuration options in the current
+working tree or branch as well as the ability to set or remove an option.
 
 Expected releases for the 2.3 series
