slrn-pull upgrade wipes out config file
Last modified: 2013-07-02 18:55:04 EDT
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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I assume if I upgraded a system from 7.0 to 7.2 it would do it again.
Steps to Reproduce:
Old slrnpull.conf file is replaced by the sample file from the package.
Old file should be backed up as an .rpmsave file, or new file
from the package should be installed as a .rpmnew file.
It's marked %config; I'm not sure how off the top of my head this could happen.
The /var/spool/slrnpull/slrnpull.conf is now %config(noreplace) so it
won't be overwritten any more.
Thanks for the bugreport.
