Inquiry about log timestamps
I have a question regarding timestamps in Debian package logs. One of my
biggest frustrations when troubleshooting problems with Xorg, for example, is
that the .xsession-errors and Xorg.log entries are not time stamped.
I have already complained about Xorg timestamps on debian-users and there are
bug reports on this but I am curious why they are not part of Debian's policy.
I am guessing that many other packages are guilty of the same and I'm sure to
discover them as they fail. I understand that many logs get rotated regularly
allowing a smarter person than I to figure out which logs apply to which
sessions. Especially after a crash or a forced reboot, though, it helps to
know whether the log output you are reading is from the current session or the
one that just failed.
Therefore, can I get some feedback on why timestamps aren't required in Debian
