Bug#491180: release-notes: Document the switch of default system log daemon from sysklogd to rsyslog

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal


Recently the default system log daemon was switched from sysklogd+klogd
to rsyslog[1].

I think that this is worth mentioning in the release-notes, even though
it doesn't affect upgrades to lenny but only fresh new installs.

I don't know current practice regarding the documentation of changes of
Debians defaults, but personally I'd prefer to have such changes
documented somewhere at a central place, so I can follow Debians best
practice if I want.
And I don't know any better place than release notes for changes
related to new releases.
