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):
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.
Thanks for reporting this: fixing in next build initially in fc/devel.
Should be fixed in 21.3-24 in rawhide.
