Description Nils Philippsen 2001-02-04 14:18:35 EST
Unlike other packages, the iptables package overwrites
/etc/[rc.d/]init.d/iptables and thus removed my local changes to that

Repeat after me: "/etc/init.d/* should be marked as %config"

We (Red Hat) should really try hard to fix this before next release.
