Description Arthur Clune 2004-09-14 09:09:20 UTC
Description of problem:

/etc/issue and /etc/issue.net are not marked as config files.

This means they get overwritten when redhat-release gets
upgraded.

This is a problem when we have to have login messages bearing
legal information ("Private Server. Go Away") and then
copy these back from the .rpmorig versions after.

The files are marked as %config in the spec file. Perhaps what you're seeing is that they 
are intentionally not marked as %config(noreplace) .

I am closing this with the resolution of "NOTABUG".


Comment 2 Arthur Clune 2004-09-14 12:37:42 UTC
Ok. Rephrase. It causes us (University of York) annoyance that
they are not marked as "noreplace".
