Description David McKellar 2003-01-16 12:49:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.2)
Gecko/20021120 Netscape/7.01

Description of problem:
The rpm for VIM always overwrites /usr/share/vim/vim61/macros/vimrc.
Not very polite - it should rename it to vimrc.rpmsave at the very least.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a custom change to /usr/share/vim/vim61/macros/vimrc
2. Install the vim rpm
3. Look in /usr/share/vim/vim61/macros/vimrc - your custom change will be gone
