I'm going to be auditing both the standard violations and cracking
files in logcheck in the near future. As many of the definitions are
historic cruft (i.e. do not need to checking for failed logins for
sybase and oracle user's)

If anyone has opinions about any entries that they think should be
removed from these files (or added for that matter), please file a
bug against logcheck-database with your reasoning. [1]

    created (See Bug#155698).
