The %dist tag could be expanded to something like ".fedora7" instead (which is
greater than ".fc6" according to rpmvercmp.

syslog-ng is (may become) the new system logging daemon, to replace syslogd
as-is. The new init technologies referred to are ideas like InitNG or similar
that work with or replace the older SysVinit stuff to help increase the
boot time and efficiency by doing things such as preloading, asynchronous
startups where possible, potential D-Bus integration, etc. They are not the
same thing. :]
