The packaged default grafana configuration installed as /usr/share/grafana/conf/default.ini file contains several modifications from the upstream defaults, e.g. data in line 15, log= in line 21, plugins= in line 24, provisioning= in line 27. These modifications are not reflected in the commented configuration file /etc/grafana.ini, therefore users changing /etc/grafana.ini may not be aware of these changes, or be misleaded about the default values for these configurations. Please ship a modified configuration file as /etc/grafana.ini with the same configuration value commented.

Additional info:
* package version 7.0.2
* config and/or log files etc.
