You cannot currently customize logging on snappy systems. /etc/systemd/journald.conf is not writable and neither is /etc/rsyslog.d.

In my case, I wanted to do remote logging to a syslog server. systemd does allow remote logging, but not in the syslog format and Ubuntu currently doesn't include journal-remote. If /etc/rsyslog.d were world-writable, people could setup remote logging or any number of other configuration options by dropping a file in there.

Some of these configuration options could even be exposed via snappy config ubuntu-core some day if they were popular enough.
