In fact, for EPEL6, he has bug 871960 listed for more recent version inclusion.   Jose, if you're out there, I'm guessing you've moved as your machine/email appear invalid.  If you're the official/unofficial EPEL maintainer, can you assist in getting this into a EPEL build for EL6 as it's a defect in functionality vs feature development?
I'm one of the syslog-ng Fedora/EPEL maintainers, still trying to get 
familiar with the work-flow & and packaging guidelines. I already 
consulted the other syslog-ng maintainers about this patch and expecting 
an answer soon. If I get a go ahead, I'll try to update the package 
ASAP. Don't expect quick results, it takes considerable time (AFAIK 2+ 
weeks), before updated packages show up in EPEL.

Don't expect syslog-ng 3.5 to show up in EPEL6, it's against policy 
(major version update which also makes configuration file editing 
necessary). I could try to provide a 3.5 package for EL 6 in Copr 
(Fedora build service) next week, if time permits.

syslog-ng is already available in EPEL7, 3.5.5 is expected to 
arrive tomorrow.
