I recently began testing mergemaster -U since the perpetual "review
diff of file I never touched" grows annoying real quick.
Unfortunately I recently discovered that it does not seem to do what
you might expect. For example it nuked my mailer.conf on one machine,
and my /etc/namedb/named.conf (!!!) on another machine.
Is this a bug or intended? What is the intended functionality of -U?
I noticed this recently too: after using mergemaster -U without
problems for a long time it suddenly went and overwrote named.conf on
a recently upgrade of 7-STABLE.
I've seen this happen as well with named.conf.
I've noticed that sometimes the -U flag doesn't work (I use -Ui), I
still have to install the never touched files by hand. Can't put a
finger on it though.
