Hi Christian,

I've just updated my post to mention the Log4J 2.0 effort. Thanks for
bringing this information.

As I said, I'm not a logging API expert and would never start such a JSR.
I'm just a developer who things I can bring value to my customers' projects
and stop wasting time in changing log implementation every time. As I've
already expressed several times in this group, I am
against standardizing too soon, but I think Logging is mature enough and
should be standardize.

Christian, if you think Ralph Goers is an important player, I am more than
happy to contact him if you give me his email address.

Thanks for your email
