We should create a separate package that syslog packages can require for
providing syslog log rotation scripts so the various syslog packages don't
conflict. An initial case is that rsyslog and syslog-ng both provide
an /etc/logrotate.d/syslog file, and having separate files will result in
See bug#400661 about syslog-ng and rsyslog conflicting.
OK, what if we change /etc/logrotate.d/syslog, so it HUP both rsyslog and
syslog-ng? Of course there will be separate pid files and rsyslog, syslog-ng
will provide same /etc/logrotate.d/syslog.
We have similar situation in RHEL and we solve it this way.
Re: comment#2, that would be fine with me as long as RPM doesn't care about
the conflicting file. Should this file be maintained upstream somewhere, or
should we just do our best to keep it in sync between rsyslog and syslog-ng?

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
