Subject: Re: [PATCH] popa3d syslog facility (fwd)

Camiel, Patrick, Simon, all:

I am not sure if my opinion is wanted (this is really a distribution
thing), but it is that having POP3 servers log as LOG_MAIL is wrong.
It may match a man page, but it's impractical.  Maybe it's the man
page that needs to be corrected (I'll probably do so for Owl).

The reason popa3d defaults to LOG_DAEMON is because there's no
facility assigned to POP3 and using a local facility in a generic
(non-distribution-specific) package would be wrong.  Distributions may
feel free to allocate a facility for POP3 and configure popa3d to use
