Are there some more useful options besides Logo? Otherwise maybe it doesn't worth it - just write it to NoUpgrade?

There are only options about progress and color in there - not very useful. Added it to *NoUpgrade* and reinstalled and to my surprise it really seems to do the same thing as with *backups* (warning: extracting ... as ... .pacnew) So pacman is really much smarter than what someone could guess when reading its man pages. :) Sorry for the spam - please close.

I'll keep this one open. I'll implelent it into the next build. I wonder if the go-oo pkg also has that file to backup.

Looking at;package=9221;showfiles I can see usr/lib/go-openoffice- and the PKGBUILD does not contain any backup line.

the versionnumber in the path makes it useless to backup the file. i will try to find a way to use /etc for storing the configuration file(s).
