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):
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.
Thank you for your notice.
This bug is fixed in the latest logwatch version (logwatch-6.1.2-3).
