Description Terry Griffin 2001-11-09 23:55:24 EST
Description of Problem:

The slrn-pull package upgrade from RH 7.0 to 7.2 wiped out my 
/var/spool/slrnpull/slrnpull.conf file without leaving
a backup.

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

How Reproducible:

I assume if I upgraded a system from 7.0 to 7.2 it would do it again.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:

Old slrnpull.conf file is replaced by the sample file from the package.

Expected Results:

Old file should be backed up as an .rpmsave file, or new file
from the package should be installed as a .rpmnew file.

Additional Information:

It's marked %config; I'm not sure how off the top of my head this could happen.
Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2004-12-27 10:02:59 EST
The /var/spool/slrnpull/slrnpull.conf is now %config(noreplace) so it
won't be overwritten any more.

Thanks for the bugreport.
