file /etc/sudoers from install of sudo-config-20110520-1.noarch conflicts with file from package sudo-1.7.2p1

Hello all,

I am rolling my own RPM to provide the correct sudoers config for the
company where I'm working.

I want it to archive the existing /etc/sudoers, and put down the company's one.

However, when I install it, I get:file /etc/sudoers from install of
sudo-config-20110520-1.noarch conflicts with file from package
sudo-1.7.2p1

There are two ways around it that I know:

1. Put the file down as /etc/sudoers.companyname, and mv it in the %post
2. Unpackage sudo, modify, and re-package.

I prefer not to do 2, as that will require keeping a close eye on the
security errata of the package, and repackaging every time a new
version is released. I'd rather keep the upstream package untouched,
and just apply my config over the top.

1 works fine - however, it breaks the rpm -V functionality, which in
my eyes is a big plus point for using RPMs.

Installing with --replacefiles will work - however - however, I want
to deploy the package with Puppet, and it doesn't seem to allow
specifying that.

Is there a way to create the RPM in such a way that --replacefiles is
"built-in" to the RPM?
Is there any other way of doing this - so that rpm -V works?

Calum
