Description of problem:
The /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date file is installed with 600 permissions. But the
upgrade of the package creates a file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date.rpmnew with 644
permissions. If the original file is supposed to have 600 permissions shouldn't
the .rpmnew file also have 600 permissions?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

of course, this sounds like a potential rpm bug, so reassigning there.
Permissions on *.rpmnew don't matter a bit, as the
file can be extracted from the package payload
using any convenient means where file permissions
Note that the permissions are 600 because the file
