        rotate 6
        compress
        missingok
        create

This bugzilla has Keywords: Regression.  

Since no regressions are allowed between releases, 
it is also being proposed as a blocker for this release.  

Please resolve ASAP.

Comment 3 Tomas Smetana 2007-08-03 11:16:16 UTC
Should I (or anyone) move this one to 4.7?

Comment 4 Tomas Smetana 2007-08-16 12:52:36 UTC
Moving to 4.7. This is not that serious.

Comment 5 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-08-16 12:56:28 UTC

Comment 6 Eric Janz 2007-08-16 16:20:04 UTC
We would greatly appreciate if this bug gets solved in 4.5 ASAP because our
postrotate scripts do a couple of things with each log beeing rotated (
compress, move to another location, etc... )

By now, we rolled back the logrotate binary to version 3.7.1-5 and added
logrotate to the skip list in up2date, but this is a little bit painful ...

Thanks in advance.
