>Proposal
>
>Apache log4cxx is a subproject of Apache Logging Services. It is a
>logging framework for C++ patterned after Apache log4j. Apache log4cxx
>uses Apache Portable Runtime for most platform-specific code and should
>be usable on any platform supported by APR.
>
>The current website is visible at: http://logging.apache.org/log4cxx/
>
>The original developers of the project went inactive and the project was
>not maintained for quite a while. The Logging PMC thought about moving
>the project to the attic but a few users were objecting.
>
>This proposal is to create a new community around Log4cxx.
>
>Rationale
>
>Currently Log4cxx appears to be pretty stable without many competitors.
>It has a small but dedicated user base.
>
>Current Status
>
>Meritocracy
>
>Log4cxx was developed at the Apache Software Foundation. Its SVN history
>reaches back to 2003 but there was even previous development on CVS.
>While the interested developers were not involved in the past efforts
>there is consens that Apache Logging Services is the best place for the
>future development of Log4cxx.
>
>Alignment
>
>Goal of the incubation is to reboot the community around log4cxx.
>
>Known Risks
>
>Orphaned Products
>
>With six interested developers and one of them being a committer to
>Apache Logging Services the risk can be considered low.
>
>Inexperience with Open Source
>
>One of the committers is already committer to Apache Logging. The others
>were already subscribed to the mailing list and actively participating
>on the discussions.
>
>Homogeneous Developers
>
>The list of initial committers are geographically distributed across the
>world with no one company being associated with a majority of the
>developers.
>
>Reliance on Salaried Developers
>
>None of the initial committers is paid to develop code for this project.
>However it has been expressed that the framework is in use at the
>companies of the developers. CCLAs will be submitted were relevant.

>Relationships with Other Apache Products
>
>So far no other Apache products are known which use Log4cxx. Apache
>Log4j was the prototype for creating Log4cxx.

>An Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand

>n/a. Log4cxx was developed at the ASF.

>Initial Source

>The initial source was developed at the ASF and has already a clean IP

>Source and Intellectual Property Submission Plan

>The source code is available here:

>External Dependencies

>None.

>Cryptography
>
>The project does not handle cryptography in any way.

>Required Resources

>We would like to use the already existing mailinglists:

>Issue tracking: We would like to use:

>We would like to move the current website to:
>http://incubator.apache.org/log4cxx/ As the main Logging site is created
