Hi,

(Moving this to a new topic, since it may cause a lengthy discussion :o))

What about Logging? Logging is at Java 1.3 at the moment and we decided, that we don’t want
to touch that component since it is so widely spread. I think our advice last time was to
refer new users to use Log4j.

Do we apply the proposed policy to Logging nevertheless?
