Package: boinc-client
Version: 5.4.11-2
Severity: wishlist

Hi there,

I think it would be a nice feature to have some sort of a logfile rotation,
maybe using logrotate.

As far as I can see the files stdoutdae.txt and stderrdae.txt are always
growing so it might have sense to rotate them sometimes. Something like

/var/lib/boinc-client/stderrdae.txt /var/lib/boinc-client/stdoutdae.txt {
	create 644 boinc boinc
	rotate 8
	start 0

should do the trick.

Regards, Michael
