Funny you mention this... I was JUST thinking about something similar
earlier today...

I'd like to see something like a "Linux Logging" campaign...

The end result is to get Slackware and RPM packages of software which
by default, log everything in /var/log:

crond... inetd... syslogd... lpd... even gpm can log into a /var/log
directory. Man wouldn't I love to get a package from a particular web site
where the package guaranteed that it was "Linux Logging RFC" compliant or

What you're talking about is only a small part of what is said by the
Linux FSSTND (filesystem standard). Applications and distributions
which are FSSTND complaint will be logging into /var/log.

Been there; done that. :-)
