12 What i fear could be a bit ugly is transition of existing systems
13 from the current setup (logrotate.d/files) to the eselect setup
14 (logrotate.d/symlinks -> logrotate.d.dist/files). I don't really see
15 how to automate that since it would require being able to make
16 distinction beetween packages' files and users' files (to move the
17 first ones but not the second ones), and i don't really like the
18 idea to do that kind of nasty tricks in some pkg_*inst function or
19 alike. That, and also the fast transition on ebuilds side would
20 somehow need to happen all at the same time so that no ebuild
21 continue to put real files in logrotate.d once a system is on an
22 select setup.
23 It would be interesting to know how that happened for in the past
24 for /etc/bash_completion.d, which made a similar move iirc
25 (although real files went to /usr/share/something, whereas here i
26 would rather see them in etc because they are more likely to be
27 customized).
