So should we update dhcpcd-s6 making it depend on syslog-ng?  And then after getting the fix on dhcpcd, remove that?  So to guarantee the order?

Another workaround is to avoid upgrading dhcpcd until getting the fix.  I already have:

I suppose in both cases we're waiting for the fix, :)

I'm wondering if it's a good idea to have the s6 logger and another one both working...  Perhaps preventing the dhcpcd upgrade is safest?
