+<p>Use <code>paludis --info</code> to get general configuration information. Paludis will <em>not</em> show any
+configuration that is 'per-package' in this output. (This is different to <code>emerge</code>, which misleadingly shows

+If it's an installed package, <em>spec</em> can usually just be the qualified package name (for example, <code>paludis
+ --info sys-apps/paludis</code>). If you're installing a package, you should instead specify an exact package ID
+(such as <code>paludis --info =sys-apps/paludis-0.26.0_alpha12::paludis-overlay</code>).</p>
