    Description

      All configuration files in kafka RPM SPEC file should be marked with %config prefix in %files section.

      This would prevent overwrites during install/upgrade and uninstall operations

      https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html-single/rpm_packaging_guide/index#files

      It's especially important to save configuration during package upgrades.

      Section to change in SPEC file:

      %files
      %config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/kafka/*.conf
      %config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/kafka/*.properties
      

      It would also be good to mark documentation files with %doc
