Subject Re: JULI proposal
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2005 03:12:29 GMT
I want to understand what niche JULI is filling here.  It extends the jdk 
logging but uses log4j classes and implements JCL and SLF4J interfaces?  Why 
would I want to use this instead of log4j or the jdk libraries?

My mind is open, but it lacks information and background here.

WRT specifics about incubator, etc...I think that the above should be 
addressed first, then we can look at full subproject vs sandbox, etc.  To be 
a full subproject there would need to be a community built up around it and 
it would probably need to go through incubator (as part of that process). 
If the effort is warranted and there is interest, then we can look at it.

But we need to understand it all first.
