Re: [logback-user] RE: [logback-user] logback initialization "à la" Spring

I would probably be a little more inclined to open source it on my own, as I'm not too fond of the LGPL.  Would it be considered LGPL anyway if it's dependent on logback?  I don't think it would...

I would much prefer MIT or Apache.

I would prefer to make it work against SLF4J as that would allow it to be used in a lot more situations, but SLF4J has no concept or API for querying existing loggers/appenders, etc. (and I understand why-- it would be pretty hard to generalize all that)

sorry for the thread drift...

I encourage you to create your own project. Alternatively, you could contribute 
your code to the logback. Assuming the following conditions:

0) you intend to maintain it
1) you don't mind other logback developers rummaging through and refactoring 
your code :-)
2) you agree to the terms of the "Contributor License Agreement" [1]

As for, I've added it to the list.
