Description Wesley Harrell 2005-07-07 13:48:31 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050517 BU Linux/1.0.4-1.3.1bu40.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
In the %files section of the spec file the logwatch.conf and other conf 
files do not have the noreplace option set.  Is there a reason for this?
This causes edited conf files to be renamed upon upgrade.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit logwatch.con
2. upgrade to newer version

Actual Results:  an edited logwatch.conf was renamed logwatch.conf.rpmsave

Expected Results:  the edited logwatch file is not replaced but the update is name logwatch.conf.rpmnew.  Also for other /etc/log.d/conf/* conf files.
