There is a property PreserveLogFileNameExtension checked into the trunk, but I don't think
it is in the shipped version of log4net and there is an issue reported against it, https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET-203,
RollingFileAppender does not roll more than one time when PreserveLogFileNameExtension is
true. The original issue that added this feature is at https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET-64.

To use it, you would add the following line to your appender

<preserveLogFileNameExtension value="true"/>

I have a compiled version of the current source at http://www.alteridem.net/2010/07/09/log4net-udpappender-with-ipv6-on-windows-vista-and-7/
that you can try if this feature is important to you, but I would suggest testing it before
you deploy as it is not an official release and likely contains bugs.

Subject: Rotated file name control


I am using a rotating file log.  The current file is TrendMasterCS.log.
Yesterday's file is TrendMasterCS.log.2010-07-10.  Since the default
action for a file is based on its extension, I would prefer the rotated
file name to be TrendMasterCS.2010-07-10.log.  I didn't see a way to
control that.  Can it be controlled?

Thank you.
