Description Pawel Salek 2005-02-22 05:30:15 EST

Description of problem:
recent emacs update overwrites site-specific default init file in:
The emacs documentation explicitely says (Sect: 40.1.2):
" A site may have a default init file, which is the library named `default.el'. Emacs finds the `default.el' file through the standard search path for libraries (see section 15.1 How Programs Do Loading). The Emacs distribution does not come with this file; sites may provide one for local customizations."

recent update fails to conform to this documented behavior and contains the default.el file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install emacs-21.3-21.FC2 or emacs-21.3-21.FC3

Actual Results:  the site customization file is gone.

Expected Results:  the emacs distribution should not overwrite this file.
