The .rpmnew feature is to protect your/your systems configuration files
from being overwritten with configuration files from updates and such. I
would bet that if you update  (updatedb) and then you search that
database with 'locate rpmnew' and also 'locate rpmsave'  that you will
find a lot of them.

Rpmnew is a newer file that did *not* replace yours. Rpmsave is your
file that was replaced by a newer file.

Try it. I bet that you will find many of each. Look very carefully! Some
.rpmnew can be bad to allow them to just replace the old. Such as group
and password.

Another thought. The last, very last, update of a Rawhide turns it into
a Release all by itself. Does here anyway and then I have to turn in
back into a rawhide by hand.
