ProFTPd allows to redirect logging to specific file using SystemLog directive in proftpd.conf

Since it did not work for me I made a quick research and found that proftpd.service looks like:

Quote:
[Service]
Type=simple
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/proftpd --nodaemon
StandardOutput=syslog
StandardError=syslog


Using --nodaemon forces proftpd to run in foreground with logging redirected to stdout and stderr
Together with StandardOutput and StandardError set to syslog it makes that whatever SystemLog directive is used, it is always logs everything to syslog, always effectively ignoring SystemLog directive.


Does anyone has any clue
a) why proftpd.service is not made as
Quote:
[Service]
Type=forking
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/proftpd


b) how to let this know to someone responsible for mantaning proftpd support in systemd?

Thanks

There are 2 proxy maintainers but also a dev is listed;

<maintainer>
<email>slyfox@gentoo.org</email>
<name>Sergei Trofimovich</name>

There is a systemd project and a dev who is heavily into that is floppym

b) how to let this know to someone responsible for mantaning proftpd support in systemd?

Traditionally simply make a bug.
