Thanks, we are using git to track local changes. I just wanted to make sure to avoid over-writing our changes while updating freeradius - we have dealt with this on older freeradius 2.x, when we incorrectly add our attributes to dictionary file in /usr/share/....

Have a nice day

      Installing a package does not over-write existing configuration files.

      You can edit the file directly.  I would also suggest using a revision control system, like "git" to track changes over time.

      An added benefit of revision contol is to keep local backups.
