Subject Re: [jira] [Updated] (LOG4J2-609) StatusConfiguration doesn't close files
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2014 02:00:58 GMT
So I decided to break my silence with this unfinished patch. It didn't seem
right to try out my first commit on something as impactful as this, so I
went with the patch. I haven't even really tested it yet. It's really just
the concept I've been working on, but I think in a lot of ways is much more
in line with what Ralph was talking about.
