Can you please consider the attached patch for inclusion? Documentation is provided.

Implementation of a "ring buffer" option to rotatelogs by Adrien Kunysz.

This comes handy when you have something very verbose that needs
to run for a long time until it produces a specific event and you
are only interested in what happened in the last ten minutes before
that event. Stracing of programs that fail "randomly" comes to mind.
This has been written after discovering the joys of tcpdump -C -W and
feeling the need for similar options in strace.

This applies against revision 773073 of httpd-2.2.x svn (although
original version was developed against apache2_2.2.8-1ubuntu0.5 and
there have been very little changes required).

Please help us to refine our list of open and current defects; this is a mass update of old and inactive Bugzilla reports which reflect user error, already resolved defects, and still-existing defects in httpd.

As repeatedly announced, the Apache HTTP Server Project has discontinued all development and patch review of the 2.2.x series of releases. The final release 2.2.34 was published in July 2017, and no further evaluation of bug reports or security risks will be considered or published for 2.2.x releases. All reports older than 2.4.x have been updated to status RESOLVED/LATER; no further action is expected unless the report still applies to a current version of httpd.

If your report represented a question or confusion about how to use an httpd feature, an unexpected server behavior, problems building or installing httpd, or working with an external component (a third party module, browser etc.) we ask you to start by bringing your question to the User Support and Discussion mailing list, see [https://httpd.apache.org/lists.html#http-users] for details. Include a link to this Bugzilla report for completeness with your question.

If your report was clearly a defect in httpd or a feature request, we ask that you retest using a modern httpd release (2.4.33 or later) released in the past year. If it can be reproduced, please reopen this bug and change the Version field above to the httpd version you have reconfirmed with.

Your help in identifying defects or enhancements still applicable to the current httpd server software release is greatly appreciated.
