From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-13custom i686)

Description of problem:
I notice that /var/log/lastlog is getting very big.
The only reference to lastlog in /etc/logrotate.conf is:

# no packages own lastlog or wtmp -- we'll rotate them here
/var/log/wtmp {
    monthly
    create 0664 root utmp
    rotate 1
}

The intimated paragraph for lastlog is missing!
I think this should be added:
# no packages own lastlog or wtmp -- we'll rotate them here
/var/log/lastlog {
    monthly
    create 0664 root utmp
    rotate 1
}


Is there some reason not to rotate lastlog?
Or was this just a simple omission?

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. This omission is in a freshly installed RH 7.2.
2.
3.
