Long time no post

It's been a while since I last posted here. The reason is simple: work and the lack of time. OK, I know, people have time for what they want, but:

* We are launching a nifty new product based on Zorp, but with a much tighter focus. A device capable of recording and replaying SSH sessions for audit purposes.
* We have decided to migrate from C to C++ for our management interface, as it seems Gtk+ style OO programming in C really requires a skill, and a lot of developers don't have that. C++ holds their hands somewhat. Thus, I've been refreshing my C++ skills and learning gtkmm while writing a prototype.
* and of course the "usual" amount of work.

I've tried to provide timely response on the syslog-ng mailing list. I'm sorry if you didn't receive an answer/patch from me in time.

By the way I released syslog-ng 2.0.2 yesterday. Nothing really important, some portability fixes, some usertty fixes and an option missed in the 1.6.x -> 2.0.x change.

Another good news is that Fedora seems to be migrating from syslogd to syslog-ng in Fedora 7. That's simply great :) Guys, if you need help, just drop me a line.
