Description Aaron Sherman 2001-08-01 06:56:13 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010628

Description of problem:
The /etc/logrotate.d/sudo file does not have a "missingok" line, so it
generates warnings if sudo does not get used on a regular basis. For us,
having a large number of machines means getting a LOT of these warnings.
Our workaround is to add the missingok manually, but it would be really
nice if it were the default.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm install sudo from disk 2 of the 7.1 install
2. Wait for the mail

Has this bug been dropped? It's been in the database for over a year and a half,
and I think the person it's assigned to is no longer with RH (of course, given
the open source world, perhaps that doesn't mean he's not working on it....)
Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-13 05:19:01 EDT
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
