Subject Re: [Vote] Log4j 2.0-alpha1 rc1
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2012 08:10:59 GMT

tag is building (mvn test) and the reports (rat etc) look all fine. I
would like to suggest we add Findbugs after this release.

MD5/ASC files all are fine. I could see that LICENSES files etc were
all fine too.

I have some minor stuff here:

- Incosistent use of name:  Apache Log4j2 2.0-alpha1 -> Apache log4j
2.0-alpha1 (Release notes)
Name is lowercase and without 2 in it

- Branding: Footer on webpage is not containing everything (see log4j1
site for details)

- META-INF Dependencies contains this entry: From: 'an unknown organization'
  - geronimo-jms_1.1_spec
  Found in log4j-core-2.0-alpha1-sources.jar

- Footer in Javadoc does not meet branding requirements (same footer
as in website)

- http://people.apache.org/~rgoers/log4j2/dependencies.html does show
no dependencies, but
does. Does it mean log4j 2.0 does only have optional runtime

- http://people.apache.org/~rgoers/log4j2/source-repository.html shows
the tag, wouldn't it be better to show the trunk?

- Release-Notes.txt does not match:
http://people.apache.org/~rgoers/log4j2/changes-report.html or

- http://people.apache.org/~rgoers/log4j2/changelog.html does not have
a release date and only points to the JIRA change log

- http://people.apache.org/~rgoers/log4j2/surefire-report.html is empty?

- http://people.apache.org/~rgoers/log4j2/build.html section "Using"
is missing. Is the intented?

- Topbar: i think it's enough to only link to the main logging site,
no need to point to companions or log4j1. If Chainsaw is compatible
with log4j2 then it could be pointed to that

I am willing to +1 this as this is only minor stuff, but I think I
would prefer to fix/discuss some of the problems above. The multiple
Changes reports are confusing, the branding is easy to fix and just
the naming (capitals or not) is one of the things which would require
more work. I mention the naming here again because we have discussed
that for a long while on the example of log4php. We agreed the log4php
is all in lower case. I don't remember if this was a global discussion
or just for log4php, but I think it was more or less global.
Personally I am not opposed to leave it Log4j 2.0 but this is the
first release, we should do it proper.
