Subject Re: Marking org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender and DRFA as deprecated?
Date Thu, 06 Aug 2009 19:13:58 GMT
I think the rolling file appenders are some of the most commonly used
appenders.  If you require folks to configure two jars instead of one in
their classpath for one of the most common uses of log4j, it's a step
backward in my opinion.

Ideally, we could change the existing RFA and DRFA to delegate to the new
RFAs (if they were in the same jar).

Is that possible?
