Request: make (most of) the config file available in the repo.

    As a contributor, I do not have access to the config file, making it hard to reproduce in-game conditions when testing locally. To remedy this, I would like to request that the config file be added to the repository. Not all of the config needs to be added; notably anything having to do with admin lists, outside calls (e.g. bot setup), or security (e.g. COMMS_PASSWORD) absolutely should remain out of the repo. However, it would be easy to separate that into, say, config_hidden, and let the remainder (e.g. TICKLAG) be accessible.

    I know that there is a typical response to this: the example config has all that anyway. This is not true; the example config is frequently out of date and inaccurate. I believe it to be currently out of date as of the time posting.

    I cannot make a PR with this change, as it requires access to the real config and possibly server-side changes as well, hence why I'm posting here.

    You can simply add the needed entry to the example config, and someone with box will add it to the config.

    I'm working on this. It probably won't be on the repo since the chances of it being updated are near 0, but I'll be available somewhere and I'll update it every once in a while.
