Hi everybody !

My name is Nicolas Ternisien and I'm the main (and unique ;-)
developer of KSystemLog.

I would like to begin the validation process of KSystemLog to join the
main branch of KDE. I think its place could be for example kdeadmin.

KSystemLog is a KDE Log Viewer Tool, which helps users to sort, filter
and open multiple logs using tabs feature. It also relies on KDirWatch
to automatically update the logs without polling therm regurlarly. A
mode is able to display several files at a time, and those files could
be plan, Gzipped or Bzipped.

The following logs are supported :
    *  System logs
    * logs
    * Kernel logs
    * Authentication logs
    * Acpid logs
    * Cups logs
    * Postfix logs
    * Apache logs
    * Samba logs
    * Daemons logs
    * Cron logs
    * XSessions logs

KSystemLog has been ported to KDE 4 and a major rewritting has been
done during the 2007 summer.

Unit tests are also available to check the code quality and avoid
regression. I'm also regurlarly checking errors found in EBN.

For more information about KSystemLog, please consult its website :

And the Kde-apps page :

I hope these features and the code will satisfy the KDE core
developers team and the general quality of KDE (especially the next
planned KDE 4.1 release)


PS: l10n team : Would you please move the KSystemLog POs to the l10n
kdereview folder. Thank you !

Nicolas Ternisien
