10 I have similar gripes with logrotate.d. Most files in there are the ones I
11 made myself. Specifically I have a different setup for the syslog files.
12 In a different file. Everytime I merge a package I need to remove it
13 again.
15 A similar issue is with cron.{hourly,daily,weekly,monthly}. One might not
16 want to run updatedb every day, but every week. Moving the file
17 accomplishes that until an update puts the file in again. Only making a
18 fake file "fixes" that.
