logback 0.9.30 fileNamePattern does not create missing directories

                 Key: LBCORE-245
                 URL: http://jira.qos.ch/browse/LBCORE-245
             Project: logback-core
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Appender
    Affects Versions: 0.9.30
            Reporter: Vedavalli Kanala
            Assignee: Logback dev list

We are using logback 0.9.30. In our logback configuration we have the need to create an appender that rolls over every day and the archives are stored in a separate directory. <fileNamePattern> tag does not seem to create the missing directories in the path. However, <File> tag under the <appender> seems to work fine.

This is the sample configuration we have: 

<appender name="ABC" class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.RollingFileAppender">
    <rollingPolicy class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.TimeBasedRollingPolicy">
      <!-- daily rollover -->

"/var/abc/abc-archive" directory doesn't exist on the file system and i would expect that logback would create the missing directory. Please let us know if there is any piece missing in the configuration that would do that job or if its a genuine bug and would get fixed sometime soon.
