[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#502080: nagios3-common: please write debug output under /var/log

Package: nagios3-common
Version: 3.0.3-2
Severity: minor
Tags: patch


Currently debug output is sent to  /var/lib/nagios3/nagios.debug, but
in my opinion it should be sent to /var/log/nagios3/nagios.debug
instead.  So why not:

 # This option determines where Nagios should write debugging information.
