Currently there is no way of handeling .rpmsave or .rpmnew files.

As katello hides yum from view and yum hides rpm, there should be something analog to rpmconf ( in katello to merge these config files..

- it search all config file of all installed packages and check if file with .rpmsave or .rpmnew exists.
- It allows you to see diff of this file against current file and can do merge.
- It allows you to keep current version or the other one (rpmsave or rpmnew one).
- it deletes .rpmsave and .rpmnew files which are identical to current file
- after your choice it deletes the unwanted file.
- it can search for all orphaned rpmsave and rpmnew files.
