Rationalize default logrotate "rotated" file extensions
Open, MediumPublic

Description

In https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/operations/puppet/+/463143/7/modules/profile/manifests/mail/smarthost.pp@80 @faidon raised a question about updating the default logrotate file naming to dateext.

Is there merit to updating logrotate extensions from todays "shorthand" numbered extensions (e.g. log.1, log.2, log.3, etc.) to date extensions vs leaving it as-is. And is there consensus regarding the same?

I'm +1 on dateext going forward, likely not worth going back and change all existing logrotate configs

+1 from me for dateext going forward
