Description of problem:
Upgrading cups doesnt completely preserve configuration information in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, neither does it save a copy of previous contents in a polite manner
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpom -Fvh cups-1.1.23-15.1.i386.rpm
Actual Results: Modifications to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf disappear
Expected Results: Modifications to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf should be retained, else cupsd.conf.rpmsave or cupsd.conf.rpmnew should be created
Very important to retain "Listen" lines and "Allow From" lines in all sections.
That includes the "automatically generated" section.
