Subject Re: Mirroring Log4J 2 on GitHub

Also, would you mind creating a Jira issue for the getSource problem.  We have a contributor
who is working heavily on async stuff who has also pointed this out and it would make sense
to make that pluggable.

String. We are using AsynchAppender and 'Log4jLogEvent.getSource' is a noticeable performance
bottleneck for us, and we currently don't see a better way around it (ok, to be completely
honest, we just don't have the cycles to refactor Log4J2 properly). So the idea was to keep
a GitHub fork and merge periodically with the master copy.
