        For the record, I have already tried to do a debian
        package of syslog-ng, and have requested this via
        our bug tracking system. See 

        Joey hasn't responded yet; still waiting. I have a setup
        that diverts sysklogd's init-script, I will send my
        .diff.gz to you in private mail.

        Are you a Debian developer also? If so, I suppose you
        will be making packages of your software yourself?
        Otherwise, I can function as a "rubber stamp", PGP-signing
        your sources for Debian.
