Subject Re: [logging] Adding jndi java:env support
Date Thu, 12 Dec 2002 18:36:08 GMT
sounds like a good plan.

this sounds (to me) like a change big enough to call for a new (major?) 

(i'm not a cvs expert) but from what i can see there have been some small 
changes since the last release. maybe a quick bugfix 1.0.3 release would 
be a good idea before adding making this change.
