5 Ok, for those who don't remember...
7 In the good old days, syslog-ng was the default. Then, for one of the
8 releases, the x86 team accidentally included metalog instead of
9 syslog-ng on the distfiles CD, so the default was changed over to make
10 the x86 networkless install documentation work (at the expense of the
11 archs that got it right). So, it's not a case of moving away from
12 metalog at all, it's a case of undoing a temporary change.
