# logrotate

The logrotate utility is designed to simplify the administration of log files on a system which generates a lot of log files.

## Git checkout

You can also obtain code by using git checkout:
```
git clone https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate.git -b master
```

Replace `master` with branch or tag you intend to checkout

## Verify and unpack

After downloading the tarball and .asc signature file, check the signature:

Get Kamil's PGP key rsa4096/72A37B36
(almost any keyserver will do if pgp.mit.edu is temporarily unavailable):

    $ gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-key 992A96E075056E79CD8214F9873DB37572A37B36

and verify the PGP signature on the distribution tarball:


    $ gpg --verify logrotate-3.11.0.tar.xz.asc logrotate-3.11.0.tar.xz


If successful your GPG output should look like this:

    gpg: Signature made Fri 02 Dec 2016 08:30:39 AM EST
    gpg:                using RSA key 873DB37572A37B36
    gpg: Good signature from "Kamil Dudka <kdudka@redhat.com>" [unknown]
    gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
    gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
    Primary key fingerprint: 992A 96E0 7505 6E79 CD82  14F9 873D B375 72A3 7B36

You may then unpack the tarball:

    $ tar -xJf logrotate-3.11.0.tar.xz

Notice that git tags are signed with same key:

    $ git tag --verify 3.11.0
