They may be edited by end users, but more commonly should be edited by maintainers of distributions to detect a suitable range of package options for the tex systems and dvi drivers available.

These color and graphics configurations will make the color and graphics packages default option be luatex, pdftex, vtex, xetex or dvips. Note that pdftex option is used for luatex versions older than luatex 0.87.

These files are currently maintained by the 3 project but incorporating work by Thomas Esser, Heiko Oberdiek, Sebastian Rahtz, Karl Berry and others.

graphics-cfg – Sample configuration files for color and graphics

This bundle includes color.cfg and graphics.cfg files that set default "driver" options for the color and graphics packages.

It contains support for defaulting the new Lua option which was added to graphics and color in the 2016-02-01 release. The Lua option is only used for Lua versions from 0.87, older versions use the pdf option as before.
