Sorry, not being a native English speaker and not finding a translation,
may I just ask you what a "Podling Proposal" would be?

Well, seeing that commons is going TLP and possibly removing its ties to
Java, I thought it might be a good idea to have comparable
implementations to the log4j architecture put untder the commons
umbrella. OTOH, it would be possible and feasible to submit the current
implentation to the opensource ooRexx project's incubator.

If you think that it would be better for the project to submit it to the
ooRexx  projec (and maybe have a link or infos about an ooRexx
implementation of the log4j architecture), I would do so. (If done so,
would you think that the term "log4r" would be still confusing with the
Ruby implementation?)

No, log4r as it stands now is a stand-alone, pure ooRexx implementation.
It would be feasible in general, however, to take advantage of log4j
itself using the ooRexx bridge for Apache BSF (but that is a totally
different use-case making ooRexx dependent on Java, which nowadays -
practically every computer has a JRE installed - may not be a hindering
stone anymore).
