An easy way to contribute is to post a new Bugzilla entry against  
log4j, and attach your contribution against the issue.

Chainsaw v1 is part of the 1.2.x release.  However the current  
version of Chainsaw is v2, and is associated with the log4j 1.3  
release.   Chainsaw is now a separate component from log4j and is in  
it's own CVS repository (logging-chainsaw).

Attach a patch to a bugzilla entry, they are always gratefully received.
