Summarized the discussions on the dev list regarding design decisions

   * Bug 37484 ''[logging] call to getClassLoader() in Log``Factory``Impl not checked for
     * Might have been solved already.
- == Bug Fix ==
+ == Bug Fixes ==
+ == Design decisions ==
+  * Do we remove the Servlet``Context``Cleaner?
+    1. It's obviously too controversial. Maybe the code could be put in the documentation
somewhere, or on the wiki.
+  * Decide whether to merge the weak-hash-map stuff into the main trunk or leave it in an
"optional" jar. If we merge it, we can do away with the optional jar completely which is good.
However it does mean that if there is a bug in it people can't disable it. If bundled in the
main jar there might need to be a little extra code to just ignore it when it throws an exception
on load for java < 1.3.
+  * Sort out whether we split Log4JLogger into two classes or not. If we choose two classes,
how should we name them?
+    1. Rename Log4``J12`` back to That would make the upgrade
transparent for the previous use-case. But there is the chance that this will not work at

configuration file stating that Log4JLogger should be used.
+    1. Users who configure JCL to use Log4JLogger might reasonably expect JCL to guess the
log4j version and use the correct logger. so, perhaps one option would be to create a delegating
+  * Decide our jar distribution strategy (in particular, whether we ship the optional jar
or not).
+  * How do we give downstream packagers and users a fair view of the actual JCL dependencies?
  == Test Compatibility ==
- Verify that trace level logging works correctly with Log4J 1.2.12+. ''DONE''
+ Verify that TRACE support works for Log4J 1.2.12+. ''DONE''
  == Release Notes ==
