Description Paul Tomblin 2004-12-15 13:05:51 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
/etc/logrotate.d/mailman/mailman has a postrotate line of 
  /var/mailman/bin/mailmanctl reopen >/dev/null 2>&1 || true

But mailmanctl in in /usr/lib/mailman/bin, not in /var/mailman/bin.
Because of this, after rotating the logs, logs still go to the .1
version of the files.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Wait for logrotate to rotate your mailman log.
2.  Notice that bounces are being logged in /var/log/mailman/bounce.1
instead of /var/log/mailman/bounce

Actual Results:  Logs go to /var/log/mailman/bounce.1, etc.

Expected Results:  Logs should go to /var/log/mailman/bounce, etc.
