logrotate.conf doesn't handle lastlog, even tough it's
supposed to, and does not compress logs by default
This report reduces to a policy question, (why doesn't logrotate
rotate lastlog) and a product improvement suggestion, (why doesn't
logrotate compress back level logs).
No, it is not a policy question! Please read the comments in your own
From /etc/logrotate.conf as shipped in 5.2:
# no packages own lastlog or wtmp -- we'll rotate them here
# system-specific logs may be configured here
Doh: the script says it should handle lastlog, but doesn't...
