I believe you are the one who best can judge the location, and I can
just give the facts as objectively as I can.
This will introduce a dependency on the jt400 project (which should be
in maven) so compilation should be possible on any Java platform.
Testing will require an AS/400 box. If this catches on, then I believe
it should be possible to arrange something either with IBM or others.
Time will tell. This also goes for the number of interested users :)
I expect this code to be very stable and unchanging when mature, simply
because the AS/400 is extremely focused on backward compatability. It
will most likely be changes in either slf4j or logback that will trigger
There is precedent of JMS classes being in logback-classic (most likely
to be log4j compatible), but I have no idea how hard this has been to
maintain, so I'll leave it up to you.
