Description Jan Iven 2008-10-02 03:19:27 EDT
Description of problem:

On a busy APT mirror, logwatch's "http" service parser will emit warnings for the metadata ".hdr" files, even if Detail=Low:
A total of 27814 unidentified 'other' records logged
  HEAD /scientific/45/i386/apt/RPMS.os/headers/postgresql-python-0-7.4.17-1.RHEL4.1.i386.hdr HTTP/1.1 with response code(s) 200 1 responses

adding "\.hdr" to $archive_types makes it shut up.

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

RHEL4: logwatch-5.2.2-4.el4
RHEL5: logwatch-7.3-6.el5.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. serve these files via http
2. look at logwatch summary report
