Description (last modified by tomek)

Another choice:

  • just remove syslog as an option
  • provide a replacement for the syslog API

I did the first as it doesn't matter for the intended WIN32 port and others (e.g., file appender) are already enough.
Or to replace syslog by the CLFS appender for instance...

We MUST NOT remove syslog as logging option. Many users are using it and there even were suggestions to make is the default. While I don't support the idea of making it optional, I'm strongly against removing syslog support altogether.

Moving to windows milestone.

Replying to tomek:

We MUST NOT remove syslog as logging option.

=> I think you forget the context: this is for WIN32 where BTW nobody uses syslog even it was ported (more than once so the problem) to Windows...

Moving to windows milestone.

=> yes of course.
