rpmnew files



Hi,

What's with the extra rpmnew files on an upgrade?

Some examples:
# md5sum  /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf.rpmnew /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf
7c8f8d809c5b618e1604207525161101  /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf.rpmnew
7c8f8d809c5b618e1604207525161101  /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf
# ls -la  /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf.rpmnew /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 10906 30. Jun 13:17 /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 10906 30. Jun 13:17 /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf.rpmnew
# rpm -V openssl
(no output)

This seems strange: same times, same checksum, but still an .rpmnew file.

Here are two more:

/var/lib/games/same-gnome.Small.scores.rpmnew
/var/log/mail/statistics.rpmnew

Not sure why we would ever need an rpmnew file for that: should these be labelled as something other than config files?

Another one:

# md5sum /usr/share/info/dir.rpmnew /usr/share/info/dir
91ba35a21c163a55982bedaab076bc7f  /usr/share/info/dir.rpmnew
0737290f14a0ce86986de276d1083783  /usr/share/info/dir
# wc -l /usr/share/info/dir.rpmnew /usr/share/info/dir
   22 /usr/share/info/dir.rpmnew
 2127 /usr/share/info/dir
 2149 total

I didn't change this file. That's weird. Same case here:

/usr/lib64/security/classpath.security.rpmnew
/usr/lib64/security/classpath.security

and here:

/etc/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog.rpmnew
/etc/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog

I'm not sure where these changes are coming from. Shall I file bugs against each package, or is this intended behaviour?
