Subject Re: [human-assisted gump] log4j back incompatible change
Date Fri, 29 Oct 2004 11:06:40 GMT
Hi Craig,

Apparently, since you removed the Log4JCategoryLog class, commons-logging 
builds fine today. Do you have a copy of yesterday's errors for 
commons-logging? If you do, could I please have a look at them?

Thanks in advance,
