How you can Help¶
You like rsyslog and would like to lend us a helping hand? This page tells you how easy it is to help a little bit. You can contribute to the project even with a single mouse click! If you could pick a single item from the wish list, that would be awfully helpful!
This is our wish list:
let others know how great rsyslog is
spread word about rsyslog in forums and newsgroups
place a link to www.rsyslog.com from your home page
let us know about rsyslog - we are eager for feedback
tell us what you like and what you not like - so that we can include that into development
tell us what you use rsyslog for - especially if you have high traffic volume or an otherwise “uncommon” deployment. We are looking for case studies and experience how rsyslog performs in unusual scenarios.
allow us to post your thoughts and experiences as a “user story” on the web site (so far, none are there ;))
if you know how to create packages (rpm, deb, …)
we would very much appreciate your help with package creation. We know that it is important to have good binary packages for a product to spread widely. Yet, we do not have the knowledge to do it all ourselves. Drop Rainer a noteif you could help us out.
if you have configured a device for sending syslog data, and that device is not in our syslog configuration database, you might want to tell us how to configure it.
if you are a corporate user
you might consider Adiscon’s commercial MonitorWare products for Windows, e.g. to deliver Windows Event Log data to rsyslogd (sales of the commercial products funds the open source development - and they also work very well).
you might be interested in purchasing professional support or add-on development for rsyslog
We appreciate your help very much. A big thank you for anything you might do!
