Re: Announcing yum-merge-conf, a yum plugin to merge configuration files

Yes, just install this rpm (it's two files, the plugin and the ini file, no
scriptlets)
Then, you'll have to trigger the .rpm{save,new}-creating behavior by
installing an old version of an rpm which has %config files, modifying one
of them, and upgrading to a newer version using "yum --merge-conf update
thepackage"
RPM should create an .rpm{save,orig} file, which should be picked up by the
plugins, and then you'll see what happens.

I've been using it for a few days now, it seems to work fine for me.
I'm very interested by any feedback.

Thanks
