No, not for rudder-inventory-ldap. The only reason that rudder-inventory-ldap needs syslog is to write it's own logs.

You're getting confused with the specific rsyslog configuration that rudder-reports uses to parse incoming logs from managed nodes. This is unrelated here. See #2284.

Ok, so having only "rsyslog" in dependencies is correct. Shouldn't we use "system-log-daemon" in order to be more generic ?

That should be discussed in #2284 (I already started and am waiting for your feedback).

I'm closing this bug as it is invalid.
