On a similar note, HouseKeepingFileAppender might be better done as a 
RollingPolicy for the log4j 1.3 RollingFileAppender framework.

I wouldn't discourage your from filing bugs with the use-cases that you 
were trying to support.  At least that would allow us to know what 
concerns prompted the development.  If there are code fragments that 
you think would fit within a RollingPolicy or TriggeringEventEvaluator, 
you could copy them into the body of the message.  I think it is 
unlikely that we'd take the whole appender (at least not into the main 
stream development), but you could either attach it now or we could 
come back to you if it looked like it would be helpful.  Attaching the 
file to the bug would allow others to retrieve the code even if it 
doesn't make it into a release.

If you are considering contributing code, you should read 
http://www.apache.org/licenses/, particularly the section on 
Contributor License Agreements.  CLA's are required for substantial 
code contributions to be accepted.
