Subject Re: [VOTE] Log4j 2.6.2 rc1
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2016 18:29:42 GMT
There is one Clirr failure in the API:

[ERROR] 7009: org.apache.logging.log4j.util.Unbox: Accessibility of method
'public Unbox()' has been decreased from public to private

This is not documented in the release note and I am guessing not in JIRA
