           Summary: FC5=>FC6 upgrade replaced local.cf with default stub
           Product: Fedora Core
           Version: fc6
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: spamassassin
        AssignedTo: wtogami at redhat.com

Description of problem: The upgrade process saved the local.cf file, and repaced
with a default stub, removing critical site specific settings to protect from
excessive spam. Unless there are critical version skew problems with file
formats and options, production configuration files should be left in place
during an upgrade/update process ... and the new file installed as .rpmnew.

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

How reproducible:
appears always, did for both of our servers.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.CDROM upgrade from FC5=>FC6
Actual results:
spamassassin is cripled by having site specific settings removed.

Expected results:
upgrade should leave existing configuration files untouched, unless there are
compelling changes in file format or options requiring manual intervention after
an upgrade/update.
