etc-update is a program used to update configuration files after
package installations create .rpmnew files in the /etc directory.
After an update with urpmi, rpm makes .rpmnew copies of all files it
knows it should not overwrite. Of course you have to look at all those
files and merge any changes. A tedious and much forgotten job.
