How do we re-open the "Fedora Alternatives"?

I really would like to see syslog-ng as an alternative to sysklogd, and
unless there is an Fedora Alternative policy I will never see syslog-ng
package approved (logrotate problem, stopping the syslogd daemon in
%post scripts).  Marking syslog-ng as confliting with sysklogd doesn't
solve the problem. People will have to remove sysklog with the --nodeps
option before installing syslog-ng.

PS - Is there an archive of old "Fedora Alternatives" discussion?
