Let me add that quite a neat way of managing local rules is with code
in RT_SiteConfig.pm. My instance sets a few aspects of queues
automatically on queue creation (whether that's with the web interface
or commandline or whereever). Skipping a few steps here, but you get
the idea:

* Wrap RT::Queue::Create() in RT/Queue_Local.pm:

ref $RT::PostQueueCreate eq 'CODE' and
    wrap Create => post => sub { $RT::PostQueueCreate->(@_) };

* And then in RT_SiteConfig.pm (again, skipping the boring bits) I have:

Set($PostQueueCreate, sub
    my %args = @_;	# The sub we're wrapping shifts $self, curse it.

    my $newqueue = new RT::Queue($SystemUser);

    # Then you can do stuff like

	(lc($args{Name}). '@'. RT->Config->Get('MailDomain'));

    $my_group->Principal->GrantRight(Object => $newqueue,
					Right  => 'SeeQueue');
