Well, if Debian defaults change long term users need to know - even for new
installs.
So that they will consider ditching sysklogd and installing the new default
in its place.  I'd say that alone merits an inclusion in the release notes.
It is not like the syslog daemon is an "unimportant" part of a Debian
system.

I think so too. I've submitted a bugreport against release-notes: #491180.

Thanks Jonas, for being such a driving force regarding that matter.

If I can be of any assisstance in crafting the release notes [1], please let me know.

Cheers,
Michael

[1] I'm not sure, if the release notes should contain too technical information regarding upgrade procedures and such or if it should only refer to the packages' README.Debian (which I have started to write and will contain upgrade/migration instructions, see #484083)
