Subject Re: Mirroring Log4J 2 on GitHub

+1 on the GitHub mirror.
If you would like to push this on infra side, I believe nobody of us
has a problem with it - just go ahead.

need to patch a few things for our work in a way that is likely not going to be accepted back
to Log4J. Specifically we want to short-circuit Log4jLogEvent.getSource to return a fixed
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.
