This is GREAT news!
One question, does *everyone* using the repo have to register?
If so, it’s going to be a big problem for people downloading other products (like LogZilla). Our kickstart/install script installs syslog-ng instead of using rsyslog which is, of course, packaged with Ubuntu.
(I imagine the same question will come up with other vendors’ software products like Cisco, IBM, etc.)

Subject: [syslog-ng] syslog-ng Open Source Edition official binary repository
Dear syslog-ng users,
Last autumn, we asked for your feedback (https://syslog-ng.com/blog/new-website-and-official-repo-coming-up-tell-us-what-you-think/) on our plan to introduce official binary repositories for syslog-ng Open Source Edition. The overwhelming majority of those who got back to us agreed that it is fair to provide this service tied to a simple registration. We are happy to announce that although a bit late compared to our originally planned schedule, we are launching this service, first as a test run with Debian Jessie packages. We will always host the latest release, and these packages will be built and tested by us, so you won't have to worry about dependencies - provided you are running a suitable Linux distribution. We are planning to add an RPM repository as well in the future, knowing well that many of our open source users require that.
How to use repository?
To use the newly introduced syslog-ng Open Source Edition Debian Jessie repository, you only have to complete a few quick and easy steps.
2. Once you finished with the initial steps, look for the Access tokens option at the bottom of the left menu bar. In there, you will find your token to be used with the syslog-ng OSE DEB repository. If for some reason you need a new token, use the regenerate button.
3. Now you should be all set to configure your compatible Linux distribution to access the repository.
# echo "deb http://JXJiI9Znyt:@apt.syslog-ng.com/syslog-ng-ose jessie main" >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/oserepo.list
# apt-get update
# apt-get install --no-install-recommends -y curl
# curl http://JXJiI9Znyt@apt.syslog-ng.com/syslog-ng-ose/pubkey.gpg | apt-key add -
# apt-get update
# apt-cache policy syslog-ng
# apt-get install syslog-ng
And that's it, you should be all set!
Please, don't forget that this is still very much a trial for us to gauge the interest in such a service. Bugs might surface, the repository might be inaccessible due to technical glitches, etc. We encourage you to share your feedback with us. It would be much appreciated!
