Mtjm discovered syslog-ng documentation is unfree (cc-nc-nd), so I'd proppose to
change to another one, since providing it without documentation turns it useless.
Current options on repositories are: rsyslogd and metalog.
Rsyslogd seems too much, and metalog announces itself as tinier than syslog-ng.
The problem is that:
* Does it's own logrotate (but it doesn't gzip them)
* The /var/log tree changes (from everything.log to everything/current in the
* It runs as root so the files created are root:root instead of root:log (users
on the log group aren't able to read log files)
