Summary0004755: Configuration files overwritten after "make install"
Descriptionbadwords.conf, dccallow.conf and spamfilter.conf are overwritten every time "make install" is executed.

Probably those should be renamed to badwords.default.conf, dccallow.default.conf and spamfilter.default.conf to avoid this from happening.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hmm that isn't good :D

The XYZ.default.conf would be best indeed, as we did with other files. But I'd prefer not to do that in 4.0.x to avoid clutter.
Easiest would be not to overwrite the files. This is acceptable since last time we touched either files has been ages ago[*].
In that respect there's quite a difference with the modules.default.conf and operclass.default.conf files which will very likely receive updates every year/whatever.

[*] apart from the 3.2->4.0 configuration format upgrade

NOTE to self: fix both in Makefile -and- in Windows .iss file.
