Well, hang on, Kay. My understanding was that we're trying to make
syslog an optional install in Fedora 18 (or is it 19?). If that is the
case, then even if I require rsyslog for a package, that won't work
unless rsyslog is started and running. So, sysadmin's experience

Was: Install logwatch.
Becomes: Install logwatch. Make sure you install and enable rsyslog.

I just want to make sure people are aware of the change.
