This follows the path of what the Jenkins packages for other OSes do.
Looks good to me. Wait for reply from swills.
Can I commit now that you own both?
I'm fine with it. OTOH, I'm thinking maybe it's also good to install as a sample file and notice user in the pkg-message. What do you think about this?
I agree with Li-Wen-Hsu to install as sample file, e.g. I'm haveing a different rotate scedule and it would be nice to not overwrite it all the time jenkins is updated
Additional it would be nice to use the official --logfile parameter, see bug #256644
I'm testing this, however, I found that it seems we cannot just use this newsyslog setting. If we don't specify pid_file, the process will not be aware of fd changed and there will be no new log appended until restart. If we add pid_file, the default HUP signal will stop the Jenkins process. I'm still finding if there is other solution.
Note that the patch in comment #0 is using "copytruncate" as workaround.
