Description Miroslav Suchý 2010-08-05 12:02:43 UTC
Description of problem:
We have configuration files in /etc/rhn/default/* and it is treated as default variable and our code assume this values there exist. No one should edit it. Rather users should edit /etc/rhn/rhn.conf which is read after those default files.
/etc/rhn/default/* definitely should not be marked as %config(noreplace) as it breaks upgrades. And it should not marked as %config too as it can confuse users, as he can think he is allowed to edit it.

We should move /etc/rhn/default/* to /usr/share, probably to /usr/share/rhn/config-defaults/
