That's a good point!

We are going to add a "test rules" option that, when activated
will enable the new ruleset, and five minutes later, will restore the previous
one. Next time you get into webmin you will be able to decide upon making the
changes effective or not.

This way a newbie can safely test rules before going live.


Thanks for the implicit suggestion. :)
