11 The same packages are moving towards a system where config files reside
12 under /usr/lib with users overriding the defaults in /etc
13 (/usr/lib/udev/rules.d/ and /etc/udev/rules.d). I doubt this would have
14 come about if RPM had a sensible way of dealing with config files -if
15 they had etc-update/dispatch-conf for example.
