> Logging Services report 2006-08
> -------------------------------
>
> Projects listed in alphabetical order.
>
> Overall
> ----------
>
> * The Logging Services PMC continues to track projects under  
> incubation:
>   log4net, log4php.
>
> * Mark Womack resigned as PMC chair and Curt Arnold was appointed  
> by the Board
>   after nomination by the PMC to assume the office.
>
> * There has been some recent discussion on a recurring topic of  
> logging for Javascript.
>   There are several log4j-like Javascript implementations in the  
> wild and the
>   authors of at least one of them has expressed an interest in  
> contributing to
>   an ASF effort in that space.  The next step would be to attempt  
> to gather a
>   Javascript logging interest group to decide what, if anything,  
> that would be beneficial
>   for Logging Services to do in that space.
>
> * Logging Services is currently structured as a "umbrella"  
> project.  There was
>   some discussion long time ago about modifying the bylaws of the  
> project so that
>   it is a single project with multiple products and I expect to  
> reraise the issue
>   shortly.
>
> log4cxx Report
> --------------
>
> * An initial ASF release of log4cxx is long overdue.  There only  
> some minor bug
>   fixes this quarter and there still needs to be a coordinated  
> sprint to address
>   the few remaining issues that have been blocking a release.  The  
> user community
>   remains healthy, but development has been resource starved.
>
>
> log4j Report
> ------------
>
> * A log4j 1.2.14 release candidate is expected shortly.  The  
> consensus had been to
>   end the log4j 1.2 version with log4j 1.2.13, however there have  
> been several
>   significant concurrency issues repeated encountered by the user  
> community
>   and fixed in the SVN that should justify reconsidering that  
> decision.
>
> * A log4j 1.3 alpha 9 release is also expected shortly.  Several  
> binary compatibility
>   issues with log4j 1.2 have been resolved since the last release.   
> A contributed alternative
>   set of appenders that address some reentrancy and concurrency  
> issues were moved
>   from the sandbox to the trunk for wider distribution and feedback.
>
> log4net Report
> --------------
>
> * The log4net project is still in incubation.
>
> * Work continues on the next point release containing minor bug  
> fixes. We
>   are evaluating several enhancements that take advantage of the new
>   features in .NET 2.0. This raises backwards compatibility questions.
>
> * We have an open ended discussion on the use and storage of strong  
> name
>   assembly signing keys. This may need further discussion at wider  
> level,
>   and probably requires some sort of consensus amongst all the .NET  
> projects.
>
>
> log4php Report
> --------------
>
> * No report available from log4php committers in time for this  
> report.  The mailing
>   list have been very quiet with only 7 messages on the user list  
> and no messages
>   on the development list.
