Bug#445203: debian-policy: 10.8. Log files: /etc/logrotate.d/<package> preferred
Section 10.8 suggests the use of a configuration file in
/etc/logrotate.d, but doesn't suggest a name.
I propose that the suggested name be /etc/logrotate.d/<package> in
almost all circumstances, irrespective of the name(s) of the files being
rotated. A logrotate.d configuration file can control the rotation of
In addition, could the "missingok" directive be added to the example
script? If the maintainer forgets to use it and the package is removed
but not purged before the package generates any log files, it can cause
logrotate to throw errors during the cron.daily run.
