newsyslog.conf(5):

             G       indicates that the specified logfile_name is a shell=
 pat-
                     tern, and that newsyslog(8) should archive all filen=
ames
                     matching that pattern using the other options on thi=
s
                     line.  See glob(3) for details on syntax and matchin=
g
                     rules.

	Cheers,
