Package: libapache2-mod-shib2
Version: 2.3.1+dfsg-5
Severity: normal

In /etc/shibboleth/native.logger, there are some Debian-specific config lines, one of which is:


24 is not a valid facility, and causes problems with rsyslog (messages show up with 'invld' in them). 
More specifically, the logs showed up fine on the server this package is installed on, but I ran into
problems forwarding the logs to a Debian 5 server.

Switching to a facility of 3 and restarting apache fixed this problem.
