Description of problem:
Logwatch insists on reporting output for every single page that has had a hit in its output. This level of detail (at least for pages that return 200) should be saved for the high detail setting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a busy website and enable logwatch mail
2. Read log watch mail
Actual Results: logwatch is packed with 100s of lines like:
GET /~x/photo/photo.php/xmas04?view=0&mode= HTTP/1.1 with response code(s) 2 200 responses
putting one of actually reading the log
Expected Results: Perhaps only hits that generated a non 200 response to be listed on detail levels less than high. Maybe just a total summary by response code.
This bug is fixed in the last version (logwatch-6.1.2-2).
