Subject Re: [human-assisted gump] log4j back incompatible change
Date Fri, 29 Oct 2004 05:40:31 GMT
I can help out with over half of the gump failures.  Commons Logging
deprecated Log4JCategoryLog a long time ago, when Log4J deprecated
Category in favor of Logger.

C-L itself hasn't used Log4JCategoryLog for several releases, so this
change will be transparent to the vast majority of Commons Logging
users.
