    When I am unable to get yum to do its job and there are errors, I fix all problems with

    yum clean all
    yum makecache
    yum update

    However I am left with these .rpmnew files :-


    Question is what does one do with them ? As I understand it they are for users protection in so far as the original config files continue to be used and nothing is overwritten ? can i just leave them and if so I assume that the priorities set originally for the repos will be honored ?
