the syslog facility config is set at compile time, it would be much easier if i could change it in config file.

This sounds reasonable, if it would be easy to implement. Developers: any opinions on whether this could go to 2.4?

  • Milestone set to release 2.4

If someone does a patch, I think 2.4 is perfectly fine.

For 2.3, I'm more sceptical - translating syslog strings to the syslog(3) facility values needs a translation table, lookup, some systems might not have all the facilities the rest has, so it's not a one-line change and needs cross-platform testing.
