Coolwsd.xml keeps getting rewritten on updates

I have a working copy of CODE in which I have several domains that can use this with alias_groups as mode groups with several of the following

<host allow="true" desc="hostname to allow or deny."></host> 

All those domains are working and can use it. However, every time CODE needs to be updated, this files gets overwritten. I assume coolwsd.xml is subject to overwrites for update purposes

Lucky I learned my lesson and keep a copy of this. But it is not practical. There must be a solution out there I just can’t find?

For instance, fail2ban has a jail.local file that is not subject to overwrites. Is there such a thing for this?

COOLWSD version:
git hash:
