> - I realise that RANCID keeps only the latest/last config for each device after running differ. It would pose a problem,  if i want to do configuration fallback to a few days back.  Is there a way to keep backups of the full config, each time the differ runs.

It essentially keeps every collection.  Please see cvs's -r option and the
CVS tutorial mentioned in the FAQ.

non-config lines are commented, so you do not need to remove them, the device
should ignore them.  or, just pipe it through sed; sed -e '/^!/d'.
