spec file

I have looked into the spec file for the openssh rpm.
In the %preun stanza, I noticed that the currently running sshd is
stopped only when removing the package.  On the other hand, it is
theoretically possible that a new version of openssh may install files
which would make the old sshd misbehave.  

So I think, it is better to stop sshd every time the package is

Also, the %post stanza for the server package, starts sshd.  But what
if the upgrade is done in single user mode?  The sysV initscript does
not check if networking is up---it just seems to start the service no
matter what.
