Thanks for offering.  We don't want to host a logging bundle effort 
here.  So, some basic features we need:

o  Best thing you could do is bundlize existing jars.  The manifest 
header entries needed for OSGi won't affect anybody.  At a minimum you'd 
add export statements.  Adding an Activator like John's would add a 
compile time dep on OSGi framework API.
o  Logging bundle retrievable from M2 repos.
o  Basic export statements in manifest header for logging packages, 
namely org.slf4j and org.apache.log4j.
o  A way to reset logging levels without stopping the whole server. 
When John submits his logging Activator via JIRA you could take that 
over.  Resetting logging levels by stop/starting the logging bundle is a 
fine way.
