after upgrading to several new stuff (including systemd-219) I now

I use rsyslogd as my system logger and I don't have a persistent
journal. Up until systemd-210 sending an e-mail using postfix got logged
in /var/log/mail, similar to every received e-mail pulled in via
fetchmail, but right now the log file doesn't show any activity.

Does someone of our systemd experts know which knob to tweak to get
the old behaviour?
just switched to syslog-ng and nothing changed. Also, only audit
messages reach /var/log/messages, any other messages normally shown in
/var/log/messages don't hit any file.
From somewhere around systemd-212 (or a bit later, I don't remember
any more) forwarding to syslog is turned off by default in journald.
You can turn it back again in /etc/systemd/journald.conf by taking
the following variable out of comment and setting to yes:

Would it make sense to have a page in the wiki that documents such
changes or pitfalls for each snapshot?

It's certainly release notes material.
