Subject RE: Why is log4net not more similar to log4j(2)?
Date Fri, 18 Sep 2015 14:32:38 GMT
I looked over the thread you included below.  I can't tell from that whether the suggestion
was to port log4j2.  Not sure if the comment about starting log4net 2.0 "from scratch" is
an indication of having it be a port of log4j2.

In my mind the biggest benefit would be to have the same architecture/feature set running
on both linux and windows.  Of course it would also be great if the releases were synchronized.
 I know a big gripe of log4net is that it's not getting rev'd.

I would be interested in helping if the goal is to bring log4net in sync with log4j2.  And
by this I guess I mean port as that would seem the easiest and safest path to the goal.

I haven't worked on any open source project in the past.  I'm curious, how does this work?
 Who's coordinating and making the decisions?
