[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#901138: smb.conf: WARNING: The "syslog" option is deprecated

Package: samba-common
Version: 2:4.8.2+dfsg-1
Severity: minor
File: /usr/share/samba/smb.conf
Usertags: warnings

During a recent upgrade I noticed a warning from samba-common-bin about
the syslog option being deprecated. My samba smb.conf file is identical
to the one in the samba-common package so I think that needs to be
updated to remove the syslog option.

# If you want Samba to only log through syslog then set the following

# We want Samba to log a minimum amount of information to syslog. Everything
# through syslog you should set the following parameter to something higher.
   syslog = 0
