Description Pavel Moravec 2016-01-04 12:41:57 UTC
Description of problem:
foreman-debug should have an option to collect all logs. It already has option -m to limit number of lines per file collected, but -m0 means files are emtpy ("tail -n0" is called).

Please fix -m 0 to collect whole file, not its zero-length tail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. foreman-debug -m 0
2. unpack the generated archive
3. wc foreman-debug-*/var/log/katello-installer/katello-installer.log

Actual results:
3. shows empty logfile collected

Expected results:
the collected log file should be the same like original
