Can be a solution, but in fact there are some line in /etc/init.d/sysklogd :
# Options for start/restart the daemons
# For remote UDP logging use SYSLOGD="-r"
[ about syslog.conf ]

Why not, but why does debstd provide the possibilitry of modifying :
- probably some others
It seems to me unlogical since debstd should help the developers
to follow the Debian Policy... Should we consider that debstd is out of
I also add some aliases (sympa, sympa-request, sympa-owner), is this
forbiden too ?
> it doesn't sound like you want to conflict with sysklogd
Not at all, I only need to setup local1 facility to log into
/var/log/sympa. That's another problem, there are only 8 "local"
facilities.. how to decide which one are for which use ?
> not a good idea...you really shouldn't go restarting other deamons anyway
I could try to 'kill -HUP' sysklogd if only syslog.conf had been modified
but here I wanted to restart him in order to turn on UDP logging.
> majordomo is UID 30 GID 31 and from the policy manual:
I knew that but in fact postinst of the majordomo package try to create
the user... maybe for the case where the majordom user does not exist...
# this part is allowed to fail
adduser --system --home /usr/lib/majordomo --group $name >$tf 2>&1
# check that the right users exist
I don't need a fixed UID/GID even if it would be easier for me... but
I have no answer to my question. Shoul I remove the sympa user/group on
