Thanks for this. But both in this update and in the previous one, all my configs were not respected. ie, custom directory for completed and watched torrents as well as other settings. I had to reconfigure all from the beginning. Don’t know if it is possible for the configs to be kept in every update, but I am just mentioning it FYI.

Manually-modified files should have been automatically backuped inside /home/yunohost.conf/backup/ before they get replaced (and a warning message should have shown you the diff)

In the general case, it’s not trivial wether or not to keep or overwrite a manually modified file, there are plenty of things that can go wrong in both cases, but the more general case is that people don’t edit the config file manually, so it kind of make sense to, by default, overwrite the conf file (while warning the user and keeping a backup of the original file)

But yeah we could have a mechanism to specify that admin don’t want this file to be overwritten … this is part of the “how to handle the regen-conf of apps” which is a big topic.
