Package: general
Version: N/A; reported 2000-07-05
Severity: normal

It's quite strange, but on my box lastlog does not seem to be rotating
since a year ago.  I can't find a cron entry rotating it.  Don't have
much time to investigate which package should rotate it, hence the
"general".

lastlog is not a normal logfile but lists only the last login for every
user. It also does not take up that much disk space as ls shows - use 
du instead.

I am therefore closing this bug
