If I may be so bold, this isn't the first time that rule has been
violated, and, it probably won't be the last. And for many things it
would be an issue -- but this one isn't, if it's the only one, or if
changes are in this ilk. It's the feature changes that haven't been
beta-tested properly that directly affect operations that worry me --
and those are rare. And the USE_SYSLOG feature itself, even without a
--enable-syslog, has been beta tested pretty thoroughly (and fixed a
couple of times, most notably with the syslog message splitter that,
IIRC, Hiroshi added).
But I'm not complaining -- the addition of --enable-syslog makes my job
a little easier, as I now don't need to have that particular prepatch to
config.h.in (which patch I loathed making) to enable USE_SYSLOG for the
RPM's. Of course, making my job easier doesn't necessarily make it

IOW, the cvs logs (or cvs2cl output) will really have to be gone through
by hand to really get a changelist from 7.0.2 to 7.0.3 instead of a
changelist from 7.0.2 to CURRENT.
