        * lib/libalpm/add.c: changed behaviour with
          original=X,current=Y,new=Z backup scenario -- install new file as
          .pacnew and keep old one in place

it seems that later it was backported to pacman2

just wanted to mention you that before this change the NoUpgrade option
was really important
