updating dnsmasq overwrites dnsmasq.service
Last modified: 2012-11-13 08:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
The regular practice is to use %config(noreplace) for configuration files going into /etc/ ... well, the dnsmasq.service file is also a configuration file since runtime parameters can be specified in a conf file or on the command line or both.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17, dnsmasq-2.59-5.fc17
Steps to Reproduce:
dnsmasq.service file is overwritten
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Please read Packaging guidelines regarding the Systemd:
Systemd unit .service files must not be marked as %config files. If the user wants to reconfigure a .service file he should copy the .service file from /lib/systemd/system to /etc/systemd/system and edit it there. Unit files in /etc/systemd/system override those in /lib/systemd/system if they carry the same name.
