[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#661468: mc: Some old settings are reset to the defaults without warning

Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The first run after the upgrade warns about the old config being
migrated to the new locations. But some options, e.g. the lynx-like
motion, have changed in the config files as well as the menu, so at
first it seemed to me that option was removed (and going by
https://www.midnight-commander.org/ticket/2357 I wasn't the only one).
Ideally those settings would be migrated automatically as well, but at
least a note to search through all menus and maybe pointing to some docs
about where things are now if those exist could help there.

Best regards,
Christian Ohm
