[syslog-ng] 3.8 RHEL 6 packaging

I would like to continue to see RHEL 6 support.

While ancient,  RedHat continues to support RHEL6, and will do so as part 
of their OS support (which you pay for) for 10 years.  If you opt for 
Extended support you can get patches even farther out..

I'd think if you want to target/support Enterprise customers,  making 
packages available during entirety of the product support lifecycle  from 
the vendor would be ideal.

https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata (hopefully this 
link is available to non-customers)

If the previous link isn't available to non-customers, try this one: 

For RHEL 6 the current Production 2 lifecycle ends in 2017, with 
Production 3 support ending in 2020. 

I believe Centos continues to get upstream patches during those 10 years 
as well.

Hope this helps.

I think, that RHEL / CentOS 6 is ancient, but still I ask: is there anyone 
who needs syslog-ng 3.8 packaged for this old Linux release?
