And if this reassurance is not convincing there is
With my rsyslog (and systemd maintainer) hat on, let me add a few
We still do install rsyslog by default and will continue to do so for
the forseeable future (for reasons like the one you mentioned).
So your text-based logs won't be gone with the switch to systemd.
Let me repeat that: Jessie will have text-based logs, nothing in that
Actually it does: systemd can feed additional information into syslog
(e.g. from daemons stdout/stderr), so you'll get a syslog with more
complete information when running under systemd.
As for journald, we currently don't enable persistent logging in
journald (persistent logging can be done by creating a folder
/var/log/journal with the appropriate permissions).
