This is really basic :) "Won't fix" usually doesn't mean "we don't
care and we won't fix it". Usually it means one of this - "this will
be fixed in other way", "wrong bug subject", "new version comes with
this fix already", etc.

This time I think log size is nothing to do with package itself.
Usually it means that someone else - user or some sort of system
should follow that root partition doesn't run out of space.
