Version: 2.4-3
Severity: normal

What the subject says. This is problem for uses in, for example, cron.
One might well use '/usr/sbin/send_nsca -H hostip > /dev/null', under
the reasonable assumption that no news is good news. However, since
send_nsca writes error messages to the wrong stream, it can fail with no
notice via email from cron.

Writing errors to stderr is established Unix/POSIX practice.

   * Sean Finney:
     - errors and warnings now go to stderr (closes: #294097).
     - move away from this debmake stuff for building, because
       i don't understand it and it's getting to the point i have
       to work with it.
     - manpages by yours truly
     - nsca now uses the init script by default.  it can be disabled
       in favor of inetd support, but the default will now be init
