Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 842318
package /etc/xdg/autostart files as %config

proposed patch to the .spec
Description of problem:
Currently the files in /etc/xdg/autostart owned by tracker are defined as regular files in the .spec.
Now I modify these files to provide system-wide defaults better fitting for my users.
When an updated version of tracker is released and I update the rpm, the rpm will overwrite my modifications without backup or anything.
If the files are tagged with %config instead, rpm will not overwrite them (but provide updated versions with .rpmnew suffix).
Other packages which provide autostart files (e.g. pulseaudio) also tag theirs as %config.
I second this. As an administrator of a large network, there are a number of applications started from /etc/xdg/autostart that I wish I could disable by default.
Deji, any objection if I incorporate this patch?
Gerd, did you really only want
? (the latter seems to be closer to what you want)
I'm sorry for taking a long time to respond to this bug.
I have now applied the change to F17, F18 and rawhide. Thanks to gerd and Rex for the patch.
