Subject Re: Update log4j version to >= 2.8
Date Tue, 12 Jun 2018 16:01:55 GMT
This would actually be helpful as more recent log4j json formats have
better and more controllable options. This helps when druid stdout/stderr
logs get pumped directly into a rich logging system (like stackdriver or
splunk or sumologic). But there are a few changes in tests that need to be
fixed to accommodate newer versions. And if anyone is running custom log4j
plugins (pretty common) it can affect that as well.

I'm +1 for upgrading log4j though
