[rabbitmq-discuss] Inconsistent log rotation

It seems that RabbitMQ log rotation happens in two different places:
 - in the rabbitmq-server script, using cat and RABBITMQ_BACKUP_EXTENSION
 - in the init script, using rabbitmqctl and ROTATE_SUFFIX

Is the use of two different variables really intended?

If not, I would suggest to use only one (for instance
RABBITMQ_BACKUP_EXTENSION) and to document it at

If it's really intended, it then requires even more documentation ;-)
