Subject Re: Bridge to other logging APIs
Date Sat, 20 Jul 2013 23:09:43 GMT
Why do you dislike including "api" in the name.  I have a problem with "bridge" because to
me it implies that I also need the Log4j 1.2 jar.  I prefer the current name because it provides
the Log4j 1.2 API (not the Log4j 1.2 implementation).  The fact that it is part of Log4j 2.0
should make it obvious that it binds that API to Log4j 2.0.

Please note that I am at the point where I don't believe anyone will be happy with whatever
name is chosen and so I would prefer to leave them alone.  In [1] below you will see the request
to group them all under the "adapters" groupId and then under [2] the request to bring them
back to core and then in [3] to leave them in core but rename them to "bridge".
