Description Chris Schanzle 2009-07-07 13:20:58 EDT
Description of problem:

Site configuration changes in /etc/default/useradd are overwritten when shadow-utils is updated (useradd.rpmsave is created).  We customize via 'useradd -D -b /local/home' and this configuration loss hosed us later when creating new accounts.

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

Request consideration of making /etc/default/useradd %config(noreplace)
