Yes, this is appropriate.

It is mentioned in the README in a misleading way:

| obmtool will usually automatically determine which packages need to be
| built.  If you have made changes to the configuration files in
| /kolab/etc/kolab/templates/ and the new release has a new kolabd package
| you may need to transfer your changes from the backups created by rpm
| (the *.rpmsave) files to the new template files.

There should be a paragraph saying that files generated from these
templates usually cause *.rpmsave files to be created, too, and that
these (only these!) rpmsave files can be moved back to the original
name (and with the exception of slapd.conf even removed without
looking at them)

The clamav security advisory states this more explicit:

Maybe you can prepare such a paragraph for the README?
