Ceki Gulcu resolved LBSITE-20.

    Fix Version/s: 0.9.15
       Resolution: Fixed

Hello Zoltan,

Thank you for this report. 

Revision 2117 committed a few moments ago adds a FAQ entry relating to the location of config files on the class
path. The section on logback initialization references this FAQ entry, thus fixing this bug.

> Hello all,
> we have hit this problem a couple of times so i think it worth rising it. The Logback documentation about autoconfiguration says:
> Logback tries to find a file called logback-test.xml in the classpath.
> If no such file is found, it checks for the file logback.xml.
> In case neither file is found, logback configures itself automatically using the BasicConfigurator which will cause logging output to be directed on the console.
> This is very misleading, one might think he/she can put the logback.xml file anywhere in the classpath but Logback will find it only if it is in the top of the classpath(e.g.: right under the packages folder). Could you please fix the docs? 
> Best regards,
> Zoltan Szel
