[users] [DAG] webmin replaces one config file it shouldn't

as we've just found out on #centos the webmin packages in the repository
tend to replace %{_sysconfdir}/webmin/webmin.acl, which controls who may
change what.

So when updating webmin %{_sysconfdir}/webmin/webmin.acl get's replaced
with the default file in the package and webmin.acl gets moved to
webmin.acl.rpmsave - it's just a cosmetic problem, as the file isn't

So my suggestion would be to make the following change in to the spec

%config %{_sysconfdir}/webmin/
%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/sysconfig/daemons/webmin
%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/webmin/config/
%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/webmin/miniserv.*
+%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/webmin/webmin.acl

Please watch for the Cc: when answering, he brought up the topic on

Thanks in advance,
