Subject RE: Interest in OpenNETCF (1.4)
Date Sun, 13 Nov 2005 18:20:51 GMT

Sounds like you have made some good progress using the OpenNETCF
library. It looks like the main benefit is the additional appenders that
can be built for the Compact Framework.

Some of the changes to the Config namespace, in my opinion, are not as
significant improvements as to the Appenders. The
DefaultRepositorySelector and the attributes in the log4net.Config
namespace are not needed unless we can find some way to read assembly
level attributes (or make some sort of equivalent).

There are a few things that we may want to incorporate directly into the
log4net NETCF builds as we have done to provide support for Stack and
Guid. For example support for the WinCE equivalents to
GetCurrentProcess().Id and Environment.MachineName could be added to

I don't want to make the log4net assembly dependant on the OpenNETCF
library for build simplicity and potential licensing issues. So I think
that the best solution is to make a new assembly, which does reference
the OpenNETCF library, with just the additional appenders. At the moment
I think the most we can do is to include this assembly (in source form)
as an example, i.e. it would go into examples\netcf\1.0\OpenNETCF.

If that is acceptable to you then the way to contribute code is to
create an issue in the log4net issue tracking system
(http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET). Once the issue has been
created you can attach your patch file to the issue by selecting the
Attach file to this issue operation from the left hand menu. When
attaching your patch you must select the 'Grant license to ASF for
inclusion in ASF works' option.
