ApacheCon CFP

Hi folks,

I would like to remind you ApacheCon is happening in April 2014.
If you would like to submit your talk, now is the chance.

I think it would be great to have somebody presenting our Logging frameworks.
I will not be there unfortunately.

Regards,
Christian

Why not make our AbstractLogger implement Serializable?

Hi All,

I just ran into a case when I want to serialize an object tree sprinkled with Loggers.

Why not make our AbstractLogger implement Serializable?

IRC Channel

Hi guys,

I recently had a discussion with Scott and Christian in the logging IRC channel on free node, which is #asflogging. Over at commons we have also created an IRC channel quite recently (#apache-commons). I thing it is a nice addition to get some feedback from users.

We also have an ASF Bot in our channel which can be requests from infra [1]. The infra guys told us, that project channels usually should be prefixed with 'apache', while channels related to the foundation itself have the 'asf' prefix.

So I propose to create a new channel #apache-logging and request an ASFBot from infra for this channel. I can do the necessary communication with infra, if you like. Would be good to promote said channel on your web site, so people know where to get in touch with you.

Regards,
Benedikt

[ANN] Apache log4net 1.2.13 Released


The Apache log4net team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
log4net 1.2.13.  The release is available for download at

        http://logging.apache.org/log4net/download.html

The Apache log4net library is a tool to help the programmer output log
statements to a variety of output targets.  log4net is a port of the
excellent Apache log4j framework to the Microsoft(R) .NET runtime.

The log4net 1.2.13 release fixes a problem with stack frames of dynamic
methods in .NET 4.0 as well as a few regressions introduced with 1.2.12.
The assemblies built for .NET 3.5 (CP) now also contain the ILog
extensions methods.

See the release-notes at

    http://logging.apache.org/log4net/release/release-notes.html

for a full list of changes.

Please verify signatures using the KEYS file available at the above
location when downloading the release.

For complete information on log4net, including instructions on how to
submit bug reports, patches, or suggestions for improvement, see the
Apache log4net website:

Java code signing cert needed

Now that extras is released (with a re-release imminent), it's time to
turn toward a release of Chainsaw.

Chainsaw can be ran via WebStart, which is the easiest way for people
to start the app - click a link, accept the prompt, and Chainsaw is
running.  Chainsaw's 'current' release is self-signed..a long time
ago.

Java 7U51, to be released January 14, will refuse to load code signed
by a self-signed certificate.

I requested a Java code signing certificate over two years ago via
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-3991.  It was promptly
closed, and while there was a Wiki page created, nothing has happened
since.

I've reopened the Jira issue, but I think if Infra closes it again or
doesn't offer to help, it's probably time to escalate this.  Is Sam
Ruby still the Chair of Infra?  Should we talk to him?  Send something
to the board?

Two years is way too long to wait for Infra to be responsive...  Other
folks (OpenOffice) also require code signing but probably have more
complicated requirements.  Our Chainsaw build is simple, and Java code
signing is driven by the build.  Infra just has to define their
process for managing the certs and keys.

Let me know what you folks think the appropriate next step is.

Thanks,

Scott
