[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#395316: nagios2-common: should rotate log files quietly

Package: nagios2-common
Version: 2.5-1
Severity: normal

Every day, nagios2's log files are rotated via
/etc/logrotate.d/nagios2-common (from the nagios2-common package).

When it does this, it produces output on stdout, which causes an email
to be sent.  This email is pretty annoying.

The relevant lines are:
        /etc/init.d/nagios2 reload

Most other packages send their output to /dev/null when reloading this
way.  Nagios2 should do the same, i.e.:
        /etc/init.d/nagios2 reload > /dev/null
