Default noReplaceConfig equivalent for /etc/yum.conf

Greetings,


In up2date config file there is a directive by the name of
noReplaceConfig . . .

Do you know what is the /etc/yum.conf equivalent for that?

noReplaceConfig[comment]=When selected, no packages that would change
configuration data are automatically installed
noReplaceConfig=1


Thank you,

yum does not automatically install anything. you would need to initiate
an install / update operation by hand.

Having said that, it should not be too hard to write a plugin that would
force a user confirm for any package that drops or touches a file in
/etc ( assuming you can get to a stage where /etc/* does represent all
config data on a machine ).

Alternatively, you could do it where the package payload is checked for
config metadata.
