Should be there now.  Don't know what happened earlier.

I don't think Wiki is the right tool.

To subdivide the effort, we could write up 6-8 or so bug reports of  
specific areas of incompatibility like bug 37965 (http:// 
issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=37965) which covered the  
SyslogAppender incompatibilities and make them blockers of the  
overall incompatibility bug 35452.  People could comment on the  
specific compatibility issues and assign specific areas to themselves  
if not already taken.  Small little issues like a missing class here  
or there, could just be committed against the overall bug.

I do think the right approach is to first write test cases for the  
1.2 branch that would fail on 1.3 and then port the test over to 1.3  
and fix the 1.3 code.  If we just "fix" the 1.3 code without tests,  
it is likely that we'd restore the method signature but not the  
expected behavior.

I've started looking at the Layout changes which appear to break any  
user supplied layout.  I may be able to get that one complete before  
a quick 3-day roadtrip for the holidays.  Have thought about  
approaches for the Level switch, but didn't want to start it until  
there was time to finish.
