It is used in 

private Configuration getConfiguration(final LoggerContext loggerContext, final boolean isTest, final String name)

Hi All,

In the API:

org.apache.logging.log4j.core.config.ConfigurationFactory.getConfiguration(LoggerContext, String, URI)

The name arg is not used but the API is reimplemented by subclasses but it does not seem to be used except in a unit test.

Is the fact that it is not used a bug or just left over cruft? Cruft that we could prune.

Thank you,
