Dealing with .rpmnew and .rpmsave files

A useful article on a long existing feature.

"Nobody ever thinks to mention .rpmnew and .rpmsave extensions to new
users of Fedora or Red Hat derivatives. Instead, most users suddenly
discover that these files are accumulating on their hard drives, or
notice a fleeting message on the screen about them during a version
upgrade. Many, I suspect, simply leave them alone, uncertain what to do
about them. Yet dealing with them is simply a matter of using a few
basic commands, and can be a necessity for ensuring trouble-free
upgrades in the future."
