How do you create application specific config files for a GAC-deployed webpart in SharePoint 2010?
Which one or more of app.config/web.config/supplemental config are appropriate to use for webparts?
Where is the best place for the app.config/web.config file to be placed? According to
it should be placed in
"\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\wpresources",
but it also mentions
The web.config files in the \wpresources folders should not be modified. The settings of these files disallow pages or items that can be compiled. If these settings are changed, the security state for the compiled code differs greatly from the security state for code that runs from the Local_Drive:\Inetpub\wwwroot directory.
Can this be done in Visual Studio through including the .config file within the wsp file?
Can this be deployed in one place for a farm, or does it need to be deployed to each server?
From reading the above link, I am thinking that the answers to 1 and 2 are to create a supplemental config in
"\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\wpresources" Is this correct?
