Subject Re: RollingFileAppender does not seem to preserve old log messages
Date Sun, 10 Apr 2011 06:29:16 GMT
I might have figured out the issue:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET-291

Regards,
Chun Kit

p.s. Just joined the mailing list. Thought that replies will be sent
to a special email address (so that it'll be put in the same thread),
and I didn't (know how to) update the original thread without a reply
email. From this email it seems it's threaded simply based on email
subject and content. I shouldn't have thought too much. :)
