Review request: syslog-ng (syslog replacement daemon)

  Syslog replacement daemon


  syslog-ng, as the name shows, is a syslogd replacement, but with new
  functionality for the new generation. The original syslogd allows
  messages only to be sorted based on priority/facility pairs; syslog-ng
  adds the possibility to filter based on message contents using regular
  expressions. The new configuration scheme is intuitive and powerful.
  Forwarding logs over TCP and remembering all forwarding hops makes it
  ideal for firewalled environments.

SELinux notes:
  1) See comment #30

  * Stops the syslog daemon during installation
  * Changes a file from another package
    (/etc/logrotate.d/syslog from the sysklogd rpm)
  * currently it doesn't change the use_syslogng SELinux boolean

SRPM at Fedora Extras CVS:
  cvs co syslog-ng
