logrotate 3.18.1 throws errors about not properly separated size on -current
 
After yesterdays upgrade to logrotate 3.18.1, I have the following errors from /etc/cron.daily on my -current instance:

Code:

httpd:5 keyword 'size' not properly separated, found 0x3d
mcelog:6 keyword 'size' not properly separated, found 0x3d

These are related to the following lines:

Code:

# grep -Hn size /etc/logrotate.d/*
/etc/logrotate.d/httpd:5:  size=5M
/etc/logrotate.d/mcelog:6:    size=+2048k
/etc/logrotate.d/wpa_supplicant:4:    size 30k

I guess the syntax is no longer recognized by logrotate, because I haven't touched these files:

Code:

# ls -l /etc/logrotate.d/httpd /etc/logrotate.d/mcelog
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 171 Apr 11  2016 /etc/logrotate.d/httpd
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 267 Apr 23  2015 /etc/logrotate.d/mcelog

However, I wasn't able to find any useful information on the presumed change. Anyone else having this problem? I guess the related packages httpd and mcelong just need to be upgraded.

See this post in Request for -current thread.
