Steps to Reproduce:

a) Create a new file named 'logrotate.py' in the sos plugins directory '/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sos/plugins/'.

b) Add the following content in the file 'logrotate.py' :

import sos.plugintools

class logrotate(sos.plugintools.PluginBase):
    """logrotate configuration files and debug info
    def setup(self):
        self.collectExtOutput("/usr/sbin/logrotate --debug /etc/logrotate.conf",\
                              suggest_filename = "logrotate_debug")
        self.collectExtOutput("/bin/cat /var/lib/logrotate.status",\
                              suggest_filename = "logrotate_status")

c) The above steps will create the sos plugin named 'logrotate'. This plugin can be run individually using the command 'sosreport --only-plugins=logrotate'. 

d) The collected details are :

 (i) The output of logrotate run in debug mode, this will not actually execute logrotate but will parse the configurations and will output a test run. Useful to detect what the application is going to do in the actual run. This is saved as 'logrotate_debug' under 'sos_commands/logrotate'.

 (ii) The current status of logrotate saved under sos_commands/logrotate under with the name 'logrotate_status'

 (iii) The configuration files of logrotate under /etc/
