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.

Patch was ready a long time ago but logrotate isn't on the list of approved
components for 5.3.  Maybe in the next release.

Dear Sirs,

I've tested the Errata Package logrotate-3.7.4-9.i386.rpm as provided
with RHEL 5.3

Now the problem with the missing postrotate and prerotate argument 
is getting worse.

Because now the argument is a list of _all_ logfiles which are rotated.

BUT IT SHOULD BE the first argument the _one_ logfile that is rotated
at this invocation.

Example for an postrotate script as running fine in nearly all
RHEL and RHL releases before but now it is useless:
    rotate 7
        service yyy condrestart &>/dev/null
        service yyy condrestart &>/dev/null
      [ -f $1.7.gz ] && gzip -dc $1.7.gz | bzip2 >> $1.archive.bz2 && rm $1.7.gz
      exit 0

arg1 holds "/var/log/lpis/*.log" on every invocation :-(

Kind Regards,
