We are proud to announce a new release of Rot[t]log: version 0.71.  
This release includes new documentation, a license upgrade to GPLv3,
and bug fixes.  This is an alpha release and is not yet stable for
production use.

GNU rottlog is the GNU log management utility.  It was originally
authored in 2000 by Stefano Falsetto on Slackware to rotate
his logs.  It was later added in 2002 to Savannah to become a
GNU Project.  Rot[t]log is distributed under the terms of the GNU
General Public License version 3.0, and the Free Documentation
License version 1.3.

In order to check that the version of rottlog which you are going
to install is an original and unmodified one, you should verify
the GnuPG signature.  You can use the command:

     gpg --verify rottlog-0.71.tar.gz.sig

This checks whether the signature file matches the source file.
You should see a message indicating that the signature is good and
made by the signing key.  Make sure that you have the right key,
either by checking the fingerprint of that key with other sources,
or by checking that the key has been signed by a trustworthy key.
