Description Mathieu Larchet 2006-10-17 06:24:42 UTC
Description of problem:

Logrotate complains about files ending with ~ character even if it's present in
taboo extensions.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit a file in /etc/logrotate.d
2. Make some changes
3. Save the file (backup file is created with ~ extension)
4. Launch logrotate
  
Actual results:

Logrotate makes an error :
error: Ignoring xxxxx~, because of ~ ending
If logrotate is executed by crontab, an email is sent

Expected results:

If ~ is present in taboo extensions (which is true by default) no error should
be reported at all
