Description of problem:
syslog-ng and rsyslog both wants to install the file:
To be able to have both excellent loggers installed at the same time
this file must be identical.
Attached is a patch to change /etc/logrotate.d/syslog such that syslog-ng
also can use the file unmodified.
A followup report is sent to syslog-ng package to sync with the new version of the file.
Setup has been tested, install both rsyslog and syslog-ng is now possible, make
it very easy to switch between loggers as users may want.
Logrotate works as before.
Please apply attached patch.

Patch to sync /etc/logrotate.d/syslog
For syslog-ng part see:
Would be nice to get fix included.
Is this package maintained or should it be ophaned?
Two months to apply a simple fix?
More fun added: this issue now crashes Fedora 23 installer:
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
This should be resolved in some way but syncing the files is not a good solution. They should be split (renamed).

renamed conflicting file (in the end name is not significant as main logrotate conf includes all files in /etc/logrotate.d/ ) this way concurrent existence with other syslog packages possible
