No, you cannot use log4j as part of the name, just as the license
says.  We are serious about enforcing this rule.

You can package log4j.jar as long as you respect the terms of
the license.

I am afraid that the Apache Software Foundation can only accept
contributions under the Apache Software License.

It depends on what you want to do.

It's a pleasure to meet you. :-)
