Re: SoC: Improve syslogd

"a stream"? System V STREAMs are not available in NetBSD AFAIK, or what
exactly do you mean?
I mean a local stream socket as created by
"socket(PF_LOCAL, SOCK_STREAM, 0)" --
instead of "socket(PF_LOCAL, SOCK_DGRAM, 0)",
which is traditionally used for syslog(3).
- syslog-sign defines signature messages for authentication, integrity
and correct sequencing of syslog messages. (For this part I am going
to build upon the afaik only existing implementation by Albert Mietus.)
What license is that existing implementation under?
It is (or was) an extension to FreeBSD's syslogd and is licenced under a
BSD licence with advertising clause.
