I looks like more and more sites pick up the news. A quite good review of it, together with the other F8 features, can be found at this site:
I wonder if traffic will go up on the rsyslog site - this has not happened yet. The root question behind that question is if people really care about logging. I guess most people couldn't care less than which syslogd is included in a distro. But I may be proved wrong.
In the mean time, I hope that the additional exposure will lead to more ideas, more testing and in the end result an even better rsyslog.
