That's always been the case, no? That sais, I haven't bothered with pacnew scripts in a while, but it is good to clean them up every now and then. It's like opening up a laptop to remove the dust.

The wiki now says, "Warning: Arch Linux defaults of the files are created as .pacnew files by new releases of the filesystem package. Unless Pacman outputs related messages for action, these .pacnew files can, and should, be disregarded/removed."

So I guess this package is no longer needed?

The package now contains merge_pacnew_passwd.

Hi Army, I don't have the time right now but I've put it on my todo list. Remind me in a couple of weeks if I don't get around to it.

Hi, could you add a script for /etc/passwd ? Just did a system update and group, gshadow and passwd got updated because of the new uuidd line. Your scripts worked perfectly, but there is none for passwd.
