Which may be more than Dominik and I have spent in some month. Welcome!

Whatever suits you best.

If you'd find some time to look into
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET-407 that would be great.

The code even made it into the 1.3.x branch before we abandoned that, it
may need to get tweaked so the build system of trunk works.

What Dominik said.

I'm not even sure the current code base builds on 1.x. I've got a VM
that builds 2.0 (by cheating and using 3.5 targeting 2.0) up to 4.5
(also cheating, unless I'm mistaken I'm using 4.6.x by now to build the
4.x releases).

We've already announced the next release wouldn't contain binaries for
the compact framework and 1.x builds - I no longer have any of those
installed anymore as running a Win XP VM and keeping it away from a
public network simply isn't anything I want to do anymore.
