While I generally agree with what you are saying (the phrase "Log4j 1.x is not actively maintained" should be avoided), when was the last time a commit was made to Log4j 1.x?  While I am sure someone would jump up to fix a critical issue I do think it is fair to tell people that based on the activity of the last couple of years, most issues are not going to get any attention.
