Subject Fwd: [RESULT] [VOTE] Accept Log4cxx for Incubation
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2013 09:30:14 GMT
hello folks,

the incubator has successfully voted on a new log4cxx incubation.

The next days I will try to work on the next steps and create accounts 
for all who submitted their ICLA.
Once the little infra work is done (moving the svn tree) and the 
accounts are ready you can happily start hacking.

In case of any questions please ask on this list. Scott Deboy who is a 
founding member of Apache Logging and I are monitoring this mailing list 
and try to answer all your questions. However I am going to send another 
introductionary email later, when the resources are up.

Welcome!

Cheers
Christian
