 Actually the situation is vica - versa. As the package name suggests,
syslog-ng-incubator is a place where upstream tries experimental
modules. It is expected to break from time to time and needs more
frequent updates.

 Some modules merged to syslog-ng and left -incubator; on the other
hand some other experimental modules started to appear in the new
syslog-ng-incubator release. It means -incubator needs an update to
its 0.5.0 version at least. I've just uploaded it - as it will enter
the NEW queue, it needs some days to be accepted. But then everything
will be back to normal.

Thanks for your report,
