Description Markus Schibli 2018-11-28 10:23:10 UTC
Description of problem:
The file /etc/login.defs is causing to pop up as difference on customer's systems because of the last line of the file which is "ENCRYPT_METHOD SHA512 " and contains a trailing space. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qf /etc/login.defs
shadow-utils-4.6-4.el8.x86_64

How reproducible:
# grep  ' $' /etc/login.defs
# The permission mask is initialized to this value. If not specified, 
ENCRYPT_METHOD SHA512 

Actual results:
Trailing space at the end of ENCRYPT_METHOD SHA512 in /etc/login.defs

Expected results:
no trailling space at the end of the line ENCRYPT_METHOD SHA512 in /etc/login.defs
