great, thanks!

this is a political decision we made back in the beginning of parabola
(the archive of that mailing list should be somewhere in our backups?):
parabola is a democratic project, so there's no special privileges for
hackers other than being able to push work into server, but decisions
should be made with the community (aka this list and perhaps the irc

so iirc, when we set up redmine (after passing by 2 or 3 issue trackers
that were ridiculously more difficult to use than redmine), those two
roles followed along.

maybe put a logrotate conf to it?  i don't think it's needed anyway
