[rabbitmq-discuss] Creating a rabbitmq.config for federation

I'm having trouble finding good examples of how to configure 
a rabbitmq.config file to do what I've been doing with a set of rabbitmqctl 
commands.  Here's the script I use to configure clustering and federation 
for one of my rabbitmq clusters:


rabbitmqctl stop_app
rabbitmqctl reset
rabbitmqctl join_cluster rabbit at rabbit2
rabbitmqctl start_app
rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_federation
rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_federation_management
rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management
service rabbitmq-server restart

rabbitmqctl set_parameter federation-upstream cluster1-upstream 
rabbitmqctl set_policy federate-mything "^Mything$" 
'{"federation-upstream-set":"all"}' 0

How do I convert that into a format that will work in a rabbitmq.config so 
that all I need to do is drop this config file in, reset the node, then 
restart rabbitmq-server to get this configuration working?  Also, if you 
put your cluster config into rabbitmq.config  on both nodes to be 
clustered, will they automatically set the 
correct /var/lib/rabbitmq/.erlang.cookie or must that step still be done 

Thanks in advance
