I'll have a look.

I don't think we need any papers signed by John.  The ASF doesn't do
copyright assignement, you'd keep the copyright and grant a license
(using the Apache License in reverse direction) to the ASF.  The ASF
only copyrights the "joined" work of the log4net distribution.

If you'd open a JIRA ticket and attach a patch that is generally enough
to indicate you want to contribute your code.  This is via section 5 of

Doing away with legaleese.

First open a JIRA ticket as our point of reference.  We can work with
patches attached to the ticket or with pull requests, whatever suits you

There is a github mirror of the log4net repo at
https://github.com/apache/log4net and I think we've taken all setup
steps necessary for using some Apache side integration of github PRs
with Apache JIRA tickets and mailing lists.  IIUC you use the JIRA
ticket number (LOG4NET-000) inside you PR comment and it will
automatically be linked with the ticket[1] - but you'd be the first
person trying this out for log4net :-)
