#11989 new defect

Improve handling of option specified in multiple global (shared) configuration files

If an option is specified in multiple configuration files, the value from the leftmost file in the [inherit] file list will be used: trunk/trac/config.py@13892:212-213,215#L202.

This could lead to confusion if the user expects another value to be picked-up, not realizing the value in another file is taking precedence. Should we log at DEBUG or INFO level if the value is discovered in more than a single file? Or should the behavior just be documented in TracIni#GlobalConfiguration?
