Description Josh Kelley 2007-01-19 11:20:54 EST
Description of problem:
Cfengine, a popular administration and configuration tool that's provided in
Fedora Extras, may create backup files with a .cfsaved extension of files that
it modifies or replaces.

It would be useful if /usr/bin/run-parts ignored all *.cfsaved files, just like
it currently ignores *.{rpmsave,rpmorig,rpmnew,swp,v,~}.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Let Cfengine modify file /etc/cron.daily/foo and back up the file before
modification as /etc/cron.daily/foo.cfsaved.
2. Wait until 4:00am.
Actual results:
/etc/cron.daily/foo and /etc/cron.daily/foo.cfsaved are both executed.

Expected results:
/etc/cron.daily/foo.cfsaved is ignored.
