www/owncloud: Use .conf suffix for /usr/local/etc/newsyslog.conf.d/

Rename the files installed to /usr/local/etc/newsyslog.conf.d/ to end
with a '.conf' suffix.

Proposed changes to /etc/newsyslog.conf will only include files from the
/usr/local/etc/newsyslog.conf.d/ directory which end with '.conf' and do
not beginning with a '.' character.

Event Timeline

Abandon this change - relocating existing conf files violates POLA.

D17086 has now been committed to 13-CURRENT.
Re-opening this review.
New proposal to minimise the possibility that people are caught out unaware of this:

  1. Modify port to install file to newsyslog/*.conf
  2. Add move_newsyslog_conf() to pkg-install to automatically relocate any existing copy that is missing the .conf file
  3. Add note to UPDATING and pkg-message to notify the user of this change (important if provisioning tools such as ansible, puppet, salt, etc are in use).
  • Add pkg-install script to automatically move old newsyslog file to new filename
  • Add entries to UPDATING and pkg-message
