Bug Description

the comment

# -r enables logging from remote machines (deprecated, only used in compat mode < 3)

is no longer correct with the current version of rsyslog

Perhaps replacing that line with another comment would be better.

# rsyslogd no longer accepts the -r option to enable remote logging.
# instead edit /etc/rsyslogd.conf and uncomment #$ModLoad imudp
# and #$UDPServerRun 514
