           Summary: file and activeFileName params in config
           Product: logback-core
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Rolling
        AssignedTo: logback-dev at qos.ch
        ReportedBy: noreply.sebastien at qos.ch

In FileAppender, there is a settable "file" attribute. In RollingPolicyBase,
there is an activeFileName attribute. Both serve the same point: set a name for
the file where the logging will take place.

We should propose only one way of specifying this. Maybe suppressing the
activeFileName from the RollingPolicyBase class and using the "file" attribute

This bug doesn't affect the normal use of logback in a major way. One can still
use the rolling functions by specifying the activeFileName attribute. The
"file" attribute is ignored in that case. The contrary is not true: if the
"file" attribute is specified and no activeFileName is set, the rolling policy
will not be able to work correctly.
