User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-21 i686)

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):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the up2date command to update the up2date package.

up2date is mainly 600 because it could possibly contain proxy user/pass

But since the standard up2date config doesnt include this, it should
be okay.

of course, this sounds like a potential rpm bug, so reassigning there.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2002-12-28 09:12:42 EST
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
are meaningless.

Note that the permissions are 600 because the file
may be locally modified.
