The "debug" and "console" targets are disabled in the default syslog-ng.conf file, which is fine, but to enable them you have to uncomment 3 separate lines for each one (the "destination", "filter" and "log" directives).

Would you consider uncommenting the "destination" and "filter" directives in the default config?

This would still keep debug and console disabled by default (because their "log" directives will remain commented out), but users could now enable, say, debug logging by tweaking a single line instead of 3, and of course 3 times less conflicting lines to update when upgrading config from the .pacnew file.


Additional info:

syslog-ng 2.0.5-4
