Hi All,

There is a gotcha with the upgrade of logwatch. Your config file will be
removed during the update. In the future, changes will be preserved, but
because this file wasn't marked for special handling previously, it will be
lost at upgrade time. Please consider this the next time you pkgutil

I'm also looking at another potential issue with the handling of the
crontab entry (which was not changed during the latest update) and will let
you know if any additional care is required.
