Hi there,

I think the move to run an official package repository for major
distributions is a bold move, and is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I figured the other move to a rolling release model [1] is compatible with
that decision, and totally makes sense on that front.

That being said, I stongly believe the latter will make things worse for
OS distributions: maintainers will have an even
harder time to update the syslog-ng package than they have now: without
bug or security related fixes.
I don't think the extra burden of backports
will help syslog-ng be the distribution's favourite syslog daemon.

That were my two bitcoins, which I'm happy to discuss on this mailing-list!
