Package parameters:
IndexRedirectUrl
If non-blank, serve the given template rather than the default index template. Example: /dotlrn/index (default , type string, scope instance)
RestrictErrorsToAdminsP
Whether we show errors to administrators only (default 1, type string, scope instance)
SendErrorEmailP
Whether to send an email to the site owner describing details whenever an error ocurrs, or not. A value of 0 in this parameter indicates that no emails are goint to be send, in the other hand, a value of 1 indicates that an email is going to be send when error ocurrs. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
UseBackgroundDeliveryP
Use background delivery for file downloads (default 0, type number, scope instance)

Local Accounts: ScreenName
Can be 'none', 'solicit', or 'require'. If you say none, we will not ask users to provide a screen_name. If you say 'solicit', we will ask for one, but not require it. If you say 'require', we will not let users register or login without setting up a screen_name. (default solicit, type number, scope instance)
antispam: AllowedAttribute
A space separated list of allowed attribute names, e.g. title, src, etc.. You probably want to avoid onMouseOver and the like. Add a * to always allow all attributes. (default align alt border cellpadding cellspacing color face height href hspace id name size src style target title valign vspace width colspan rowspan class, type string, scope instance)
antispam: AllowedProtocol
A space separated list of protocols that are valid attributes of HTML tags in submitted content. Add a * to always all all protocols. (default http https ftp mailto, type string, scope instance)

caching: DBCacheSize
The size of the database API cache (default 200000, type number, scope instance)
caching: MaxSize
The size of the util_memoize cache(bytes) (default 200000, type number, scope instance)
permissions: PermissionCacheP
Whether to cache permission_p calls. Use with extreme caution. Only direct permissions managed via the tcl api are properly handled and some packages modify permissions directly in the database and will not work properly when this is turned on. You must restart the server after changing this param. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
permissions: PermissionCacheTimeout
Number of seconds until the permissions cache times out. (default 300, type number, scope instance)
privacy: PrivacyControlEnabledP
Whether we control privacy. One example of a package that uses this is forums. It doesn't show any forum posting content unless this is set to 1. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
request-processor: BugTrackerInstance
Use this parameter to indicate the instance of the bug tracker where the errors will be automatically submited. You must use a relative url indicating where is mounted the instance of the bug tracker. For instance, if you have your bug tracker instance mounted under "/bug", this parameter must be "/bug". Leave this parameter in blank if you do not want to use it. (default , type string, scope instance)
request-processor: DebugP
save debugging information for developer support? (default 0, type string, scope instance)
request-processor: ExcludedFiles
string match patterns for files which the request processor should never serve (default */CVS/* *~, type string, scope instance)
request-processor: ExtensionPrecedence
precedence for file extensions, e.g., 'tcl,adp,html' means 'serve a .tcl file if available, else an .adp file if available, else an .html file if available, else the first file available in alphabetical order. Comma-separated. (default adp,tcl,html,jpg,gif, type string, scope instance)
request-processor: ForceHostP
if a user provides a Host header which isn't this, redirect the user to this particular host. e.g., if yourservername.com and www.yourservername.com point to the same IP, set this to 1 so cookies will be properly set. (default 0, type string, scope instance)
request-processor: HttpCacheControlP
Whether we output http headers on every request for dynamic pages that prevent browsers and proxies from caching the page. (default 1, type number, scope instance)
request-processor: LogDebugP
log request-processor debug messages to the error log? very verbose. (default 0, type string, scope instance)
request-processor: PerformanceModeP
Setting this to 1 will tell the request processor to make the assumption that once a url is mapped to a file, that mapping never changes. This obviously would cause problems on a development system, but will improve performance on a production server. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
request-processor: ResourcesExpireInterval
If the specified value is different to 0, the value is passed to ns_setexpires to provide an expire time for the content. Typically, this time is set in seconds but can be as well an integer with the suffix "d" for days, "h" for hours or "m" for minutes, such as e.g. 30d for 30 days. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
request-processor: ServeXQLFiles

security: CSPEnabledP
Enable automated generation of W3C ontent Security Policies (CSP) (default 1, type number, scope instance)
security: CookieDomain
Domain to pass to ad_set_cookie. Set this if you want to access multiple hostnames under the same domain. (default , type string, scope instance)
security: DefaultPersistentLoginP
On the login screen, should the default be to login the user permanently (1) or not (0). (default 1, type number, scope instance)
