I forgot to mention I'm using Sheepdog daemon version 0.8.2.

This is what I get:

ls -lh /var/lib/sheepdog/sheep.log*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    0 ago 31 06:25 /var/lib/sheepdog/sheep.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 228K set  3 10:14 /var/lib/sheepdog/sheep.log.1
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    0 ago 17 06:25 /var/lib/sheepdog/sheep.log.2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  18M ago 30 10:20 /var/lib/sheepdog/sheep.log.3
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    0 ago  3 06:25 /var/lib/sheepdog/sheep.log.4

It should rotate every week but it doesn't if the file is empty.

Correct me if I'm wrong: sheep doesn't rotate sheep.log by itself, right?
In the man I didn't read anything about file rotation.
Notice I'm not using the --log option, so sheep is using its default
