Description of problem:
If /tmp and/or /var/tmp are their partition, the daily tmpwatch might delete the files aquota.user and aquota.group if they were not modified recently.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount /tmp and /var/tmp on their own partition
2. enable quotas for these filesystems, generate aquota.user and aquota.group using quotacheck
3. wait long enough (10 days for /tmp, 30 for /var/tmp)
tmpwatch deletes those files
tmpwatch should not delete these files as they are required
A workaround is to modify /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch and include these files . This should be the default for /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch .
Thanks for the bug report.
