How you can HelpΒΆ

You like rsyslog and would like to lend us a helping hand? This page tells you how easy it is to help a little bit. You can contribute to the project even with a single mouse click! If you could pick a single item from the wish list, that would be awfully helpful!

This is our wish list:

  • let others know how great rsyslog is
    • spread word about rsyslog in forums and newsgroups
    • place a link to from your home page
  • let us know about rsyslog - we are eager for feedback
    • tell us what you like and what you not like - so that we can include that into development
    • tell us what you use rsyslog for - especially if you have high traffic volume or an otherwise “uncommon” deployment. We are looking for case studies and experience how rsyslog performs in unusual scenarios.
    • allow us to post your thoughts and experiences as a “user story” on the web site (so far, none are there ;))
  • if you know how to create packages (rpm, deb, ...)
    • we would very much appreciate your help with package creation. We know that it is important to have good binary packages for a product to spread widely. Yet, we do not have the knowledge to do it all ourselves. Drop Rainer a noteif you could help us out.
  • if you have configured a device for sending syslog data, and that device is not in our syslog configuration database, you might want to tell us how to configure it.
  • if you are a corporate user

We appreciate your help very much. A big thank you for anything you might do!
