Description Fritz Elfert 2004-12-02 15:29:17 EST
Description of problem:
The file /etc/imapd.conf is somehow wrongly tagged in the recent
update rpm. When performing unattended nightly yum updates,
instead of saving the new /etc/imapd.conf in /etc/imapd.conf.rpmnew,
it saves the old file in /etc/imapd.conf.rpmsave and creates a new
/etc/imapd.conf, rendering customized installations unusable (e.g:
here, we use auxprop authentication, unixhierarchysep and more auth
methods than just PLAIN). Thus, next morning, nobody could access
their imap accounts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Customize /etc/imapd.conf
2. Update cyrus-imapd to 2.2.10-1.fc2
Actual results:
Previous customizations are not effective anymore. Which could
lead to render imapd services unusable, until someone restores
/etc/imapd.conf manually

Expected results:
New config file should be stored in /etc/imapd.conf.rpmnew

Thank you for your bug report, this was brought to our attention
yesterday in bug #141470, so I'm marking this bug as a duplicate of
that. The fix has been applied to the spec files. It's not clear to me
that pushing an update for this makes sense, if updates are applied in
 sequence as would be typical an update with the fix won't save them,
I will evaluate the merit of that, as opposed to just having the
config file fix appear when another issue forces an update.

FYI, new versions of cyrus-imapd have been built that set
to be "noreplace". Packages are waiting for signature and push.
