On deinstallation of a package, the package's registered configurations are compared with the versions in the share/examples directory.

If different, then it is removed.

On a package installation, if the configuration does not exist, it will be copied into place from the (newly installed) share/examples version.

All well and good, but what you have NOT mentioned is what has been done vs should have been done if the configuration DOES exist.

whyzat ?

In the case of fontconfig, the fonts.conf file should not be manually edited by the admin as the customizations should be in local.conf.

OK - why then was the old fontconfig <defaults?> NOT removed or replaced?

Reality doesn't seem to be following either my preferences or your 'should have' (standard?) here.

Not a who is right/wrong issue to me.

More one of expectations/predictability - and what is presently in the code....
