36. By Martin Pitt on 2011-01-12

releasing version 4.6.4-2ubuntu4

35. By Martin Pitt on 2011-01-12

debian/50-default.conf: Disable redundant and non-synchronous log files by
default (this will only affect new installations), to reduce disk size
overhead and unnecessary wakeups and IO: daemon.log, lpr.log, user.log,
mail.{info,warn) (these are already in mail.log and syslog), debug,
messages.

34. By Stéphane Graber on 2010-12-06

Instead of removing /etc/default/rsyslog, patch the upstart job to
parse it as the old init script used to (LP: #570103)

33. By Stéphane Graber on 2010-12-06

Remove debian/rsyslog.default as the upstart init script doesn't read
/etc/default/rsyslog (LP: #570103)

32. By Colin Watson on 2010-12-06

releasing version 4.6.4-2ubuntu1

31. By Colin Watson on 2010-12-06

merge from Debian 4.6.4-2

30. By Colin Watson on 2010-11-19

releasing version 4.6.4-1ubuntu2

29. By Colin Watson on 2010-11-19

Restore maintainer script code to install
/etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf, and refer to it again from rsyslog.conf.

28. By Lorenzo De Liso on 2010-11-05

* Merge from debian unstable (LP: #671533), remaining changes:
  - Run as rsyslog:rsyslog, set $FileOwner to syslog
  - Replace init script with debian/rsyslog.upstart.
  - debian/control: Bump build-dependency on debhelper for Upstart-aware
    dh_installinit
  - debian/rsyslog.logrotate: Use reload command to restart rsyslog
  - debian/rsyslog.conf: enable $RepeatedMsgReduction
    to avoid bloating the syslog file (LP #453444)
  - Add debian/rsyslog.dmesg.upstart to save initial dmesg into a file.
    Install it in debian/rules.
  - debian/50-default.conf: set of default rules for syslog (forwarded to
    Debian #603160)
* Dropped changes:
  - debian/patches/deroot.patch: this patch was introduced to support
    earlier kernels and we don't support running natty on pre-karmic
    kernels
  - sysklogd → rsyslog upgrade was done pre-lucid (LTS) so drop all
    the upgrade handling
  - Restore to reading from /proc/kmsg: rsyslog can read directly from
    /proc/kmsg now; dropped init script changes as they're obsolete
    (even when actually using the init script which we don't, we have
    the upstart script)

27. By Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2010-02-24

* debian/patches/deroot.patch:
  - After opening /proc/kmsg, set the effective user to an unprivileged
    one and attempt a zero-byte read from the file. If this succeeds, we
    know that this will work de-rooted; if this fails, we don't enable
    kernel-message logging. LP: #523610.
