Subject Re: How to manage log files?

I share your frustrations, but at this time I believe 
that our only recourse is to write our own subclass of 
org.apache.catalin.logger.FileLogger. At this point, I've
got bigger fish to fry, so I haven't even looked at this
yet. If you come up with something, post it!
