Description Ville Skyttä 2012-10-09 17:09:52 EDT
With systemd providing syslog/journal, it seems that the dependency on syslog could/should be dropped from cronie. As it stands, cronie is the only thing on my system that prevents removal of rsyslog.

cronie requires syslog capability. I thought every logging tool will provide syslog in their provides.

Hm, really? That sounds unusual. AFAIK a lot of software will do syslog logging if syslog is available, but if not, they just don't do that but do work otherwise. Is cronie somehow different? Anyway, I'd say systemd and the syslog capability it provides is pretty much guaranteed to be around nowadays.

I suppose that's pretty much an obsolete provision now, then.
