Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 68807
additional services for logwatch
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
I am submitting two scripts for logwatch that capture log messages from services
that RedHat either does not provide or does not use by default. Their inclusion
does not interfere with anything that RedHat does offer, however, and also makes
life a little easier for administrators who include these services on a RedHat
system. The services in question are stunnel and FreeS/WAN.
I have also submitted these suggestions to the logwatch maintainers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
My change involves adding two scripts and two configuration files, and patching
secure.conf to omit lines about those services from the general secure log
output. Note that for this to work properly, my one-line patch to secure from
bug 68806 must be applied. Otherwise, the exclusion of "pluto" won't match
because it appears as Pluto in the actual log.
Three patches are attached: the secure.conf patch, and one patch each for
stunnel and freeswan.

Probably will just get these from upstream eventually.
