Hi Jan,

[UPGRADE] nagios-plugins 1.4.11-2 -> 1.4.12-1
[UPGRADE] nagios-plugins-basic 1.4.11-2 -> 1.4.12-1
[UPGRADE] nagios-plugins-standard 1.4.11-2 -> 1.4.12-1

For me it seems it has overwritten all files in  
/etc/nagios-plugins/config, except check_nrpe.cfg. All others have  
newer timestamps.

At least it has backuped my modifications as there are now some  
.ucf-dist files in the directory.

In the same run it upgraded the packages for nagios3 and  
nagios3-common too, but there it asked me if I want to keep  
/etc/nagios3/cgi.cfg|nagios.cfg|... or replace it with the maintainers
