    Your logrotation configuration files are located in the '/etc/logrotate.d' directory. When the logrotate package is updated it will not overwrite your current configuration. Instead it will move the current configuration by changing the extension to '.rpmorig' or it will just place the new configuration in the same directory with the '.rpmnew' extension. Logrotate does not process these files. That is why it is "Ignoring" them. You can either delete these files or replace the current configuration with the .rpmnew configuration files.
