this I got via email:

        I found your email address into moin spec file. 
I want to tell you that moin rpm file have a important issue, during
last update, I lost my wiki configuration because wikiconfig.py is not
tagged as configuration and is overwritten.
I guess you should tag that file as configuration file.

I've already explained this in a bugzilla entry, but can't manage to find it.
You should never edit the site-wide files installed by the moin package, but
copy them and edit the local copy as indicated in the included README-rpm file.
The original moin website instructions also indicate something similar IIRC.
Tagging the installed original file as %config would be wrong, as it is
installed in /usr.
