    Yep. Alternatively, check out RedHat's logrotate. It is far more
    flexible, yet less cryptic to configure. It also lets software packages
    (like httpd, squid, cupsd, etc) drop their own little logrotate config
    files into /etc/logrotate.d, hence eliminating the need for a package
    manager to mess with a master config file. The scheduling of log
    rotations is completely left out of logrotate, instead it is run via
    cron whenever desired.
    I'm not quite sure why it isn't mentioned on
