How can I see the contents of /etc/logrotate.conf and /etc/logrotate.d/*?
I'm unclear on whether it's just one machine or not. Earlier you said
"there are a bunch of
distinct machines and VMs at cernio with various levels of connection to
Noisebridge." When you say but the VPS is the only one that's
"noisebridge-associated," do you mean it's the only one with a
noisebridge.net reverse DNS entry, the only one dedicated to
Noisebridge use, or something else?

I need to know how long logs of HTTP and SMTP clients will persist, that's all.
